cup granulated sugar
1
cup butter or margarine, softened
1/2
teaspoon vanilla
1
egg
2 1/4
cups Gold Medal® all-purpose flour

Small pastel-colored candies
  1. Heat oven to 375°F. In large bowl, beat granulated sugar, butter, vanilla and egg with spoon until smooth. Stir in flour.
  2. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. (If dough is too soft to shape, cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour.) Roll balls in colored sugars. On ungreased cookie sheet, place about 2 inches apart.
  3. With kitchen scissors or paring knife pointing down, snip each ball in half, cutting three-fourths of the way through dough; cut each half into 3 wedges for petals.
  4. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until set. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack. Immediately press 1 candy into each cookie. Cool completely.
