Valentine Rich Rolled Cookies

READY IN: 45mins
YIELD: 60 Cookies




  • 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.
