DIRECTIONS

  • Cream butter in a large bowl with an electric mixer.
  • Add confectioners' sugar; beat well.
  • Beat in the egg and extracts.
  • Blend in the flour and salt.
  • Form the dough into two disks and wrap them in plastic.
  • Chill the dough well.
  • Remove one disk from the refrigerator.
  • Roll dough out on a lightly floured surface to 1/8-inch thickness.
  • Cut into 11/2-inch squares, then cut from each corner of the square almost to the center.
  • Turn over every other cut point to the center and press gently, forming a pinwheel (or poinsettia).
  • Sprinkle the center of each with red sugar.
  • Repeat with the second disk of dough.
  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Place the cookies on greased baking sheets and bake until very lightly golden, about 8 to 10 minutes.
