  2. sue says:

    any cookie dough that can be rolled and cut can be a Christmas Cookie.

    My favorite is biscochitos: http://www.recipezaar.com/51214

    That is a New Mexico tradition. Of course I still make the sugar cookies and gingerbread cookies too.

    Tx2step?? how many hundreds of dozens of cookies have you iced at midnight?? You are being so rude.

    A simple sugar cookie recipe with a tender, flaky texture and a buttery taste. Yum!

    Makes about 24
    1 cup butter, softened
    1 cup granulated sugar
    1 large egg
    1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla
    3 cups all-purpose flour
    1-1/4 teaspoons baking powder

    Beat together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla, mix until just combined. Add flour and baking powder in intervals. Dough will seem as if doesn’t have enough moisture but continue to mix with mixer until combined (it will come together when chilled). Divide the dough into four equal parts, shape into four disks, wrap with plastic wrap and refrigerate about an hour or until firm. Preheat oven to 375 F. Lightly grease baking sheets or line with parchment paper or a non-stick baking mat. Roll out dough between 2 sheets of waxed paper, about 1/4 inch thick for crispier cookies and 1/3 inch thick for softer cookies. Cut out shapes with cookie cutters and place on prepared baking sheets. Bake for 7-8 minutes or until edges just start to turn a golden color. For softer cookies, do not allow the cookies to take on color. Remove from oven, let cool for one minute and then transfer to wire rack. Allow cookie sheet to cool thoroughly before placing uncooked dough on it. Decorate cookies with Royal Icing or Buttercream Frosting and sprinkles.
