DIRECTIONS

  • Beat together eggs and sugar until white, then add sour cream and oil.
  • In a cup, mix baking ammonia and warm milk, then pour into first mixture.
  • Add peppermint extract and mix well.
  • Add salt, baking powder and flour.
  • The dough should be very soft.
  • Refrigerate overnight.
  • The next day roll out the dough to about 1/4 inch thickness and cut with cookie cutters(I used a 2 inch round cookie cutter).
  • Before baking, place a 9 x 13 inch cake pan full of water at the bottom of the oven.
  • Bake at 400°F for 8- 10 minutes(for my convection oven I found this a bit too hot, I used 375°F for 8 minutes.).
  • Cookies must remain white.
  • Ice cookies after they have cooled, with a glace.
  • You can use a pastry brush to apply the glace.
