Gold Medal Flour

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 cups Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons milk
  • 3 tablespoons decorator sugar crystals

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. In medium bowl, beat butter, brown sugar, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla and egg with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. On low speed, beat in flour, salt, cardamom and cinnamon. Refrigerate dough about 1 hour or until firm.
  • 2
    Shape dough into 1-inch balls. On ungreased cookie sheets, place balls 2 inches apart. Gently press bottom of drinking glass onto dough to grease, then press into granulated sugar and onto dough balls to flatten to about 1 1/2 inches in diameter.
  • 3
    Bake 7 to 9 minutes or until edges are just beginning to brown and centers of cookies are set. Immediately remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks. Cool 10 minutes.
  • 4
    In small bowl, mix powdered sugar, 1 teaspoon vanilla and enough of the milk until glaze is smooth and thin enough to drizzle. Drizzle glaze over cookies; sprinkle with sugar crystals.

  • Cardamom, one of the oldest spices in the world, comes from the seeds of a gingerlike plant.
