- Ready In:
- Cream butter and sugar.
- Beat in egg and flavoring.
- Combine and add flour and salt.
- Chill dough 3-4 hours.
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- Roll thinly and cut.
- Bake 5-7 minutes, (this is because I roll them very thin,you might want to cook them longer if you don't roll them thin -- see other peoples notes).
- Ice with either Almond or Royal Icing.
- The Almond Icing is a thin icing that you can "paint" on the cookies. I actually use paint brushes, and have fun coloring the icing.
- The Royal Icing dries hard. It can be used to "glue" tails back on kittens (cookies) and trunks on elephants. It also holds the cookies together better for shipping. I use a small metal spatula for spreading this, and use a lot of sprinkles and other adornments with this icing.
- The amounts of sugar and liquid are flexible to your own preferred consistency.

Nice, easy cookie to make. Made them for Valentine's Day and they turned out very good. As mine were rolled quite thin I did have to watch them to make certain that they didn't burn. I too, did not get 60 cookies as my heart shaped cutter was rather large. All in all they passed the family taste test and are now saved in my cookbook. Thanks for sharing this recipe.
THIS is my new Christmas cookie recipe! I have always used the Rich Roll cookie recipe from The Joy of Cooking, but wanted to try something else this year. WOW, these are so good and very easy to roll. Instead of using the icing, I just sprinked colored sugar on before I baked them. We ate them with Family Style Eggnog for dessert on Christmas Eve. They paired very well with the richness of the eggnog; a perfect dessert after a rich turkey dinner! This recipe is a keeper! BTW, I had some dough left over and it was just fine rolled and baked 5 days later.
