Cookies

1

1 1/2

1

1
egg
2 1/2
cups Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
1

Decorations, if desired

Betty Crocker™ colored sugars
Betty Crocker™ decorating icings (from 4.25-oz tubes)

  • 1 In large bowl, beat butter, 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar, the vanilla and egg with electric mixer on medium speed, or mix with spoon. Stir in flour, baking soda and cream of tartar. Cover; refrigerate 2 to 3 hours or until chilled.
  • 2 Heat oven to 375°F. Divide dough in half. On lightly floured cloth-covered surface, roll each half 1/4 inch thick. Cut with 3 1/2-inch heart-shaped cookie cutter. On ungreased cookie sheet, place cutouts 2 inches apart. If desired, sprinkle with colored sugars.
  • 3 Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until delicately golden. Remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
  • 4 In small bowl, mix glaze ingredients until smooth and spreadable. Spread glaze over cookies. Decorate with decorator icings.

Expert Tips

Short of time? Use a pouch of Betty Crocker® sugar cookie mix instead of the scratch recipe.

Cut cookies, using a cutter dipped in flour or powdered sugar, as close together as possible on the rolled dough to avoid rerolling (rerolled dough will be a little tougher).
