Gold Medal Flour

Ingredients

  • 1
    cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2
    cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 1
    egg
  • 1 3/4
    cups Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
  • 1/3
    cup finely chopped almonds
  • 1/2
    teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4
    teaspoon salt
  • 1
    cup powdered sugar
  • 2
    tablespoons water
  • 3
    tablespoons edible glitter (any color) or Betty Crocker™ candy sprinkles

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F.
  • 2
    Mix granulated sugar, butter and egg in medium bowl. Stir in flour, almonds, baking soda and salt.
  • 3
    Divide dough into 3 parts. Roll each part 1/8 inch thick on lightly floured cloth-covered surface. Cut with 2- to 2 1/2-inch star-shaped cookie cutter. Place on ungreased cookie sheet.
  • 4
    Bake 6 to 7 minutes or until edges are light brown; Cool completely, about 1 hour.
  • 5
    Mix powdered sugar and water until smooth and a thin spreading consistency. Spread very thinly on cookies. Sprinkle with edible glitter.

  • When you don't fill up your cookie sheet, you end up with unevenly baked cookies. If you don't have enough cookie dough to fill a cookie sheet, use an upside-down cake pan instead.
  • Who can resist a star sandwich? Spread about 1 tablespoon of ready-to-spread frosting on a cookie; sandwich two cookies, bottoms together.
