XMAS-STARS(D)            USENET Cookbook            XMAS-STARS(D)

CHRISTMAS STARS

     XMAS-STARS - Frosted cookie-cutter cookies

     My mom got this recipe many years ago in a cookbook that
     came in installments, so it didn't have a name on the binder
     and I don't know what it was called. She had us (the kids)
     make these cookies every year.

INGREDIENTS (2-4 dozen)
          COOKIES
     1 cup     solid shortening (not butter)
     2/3 cup   granulated sugar
     2         eggs
     1 tsp     salt
     1 tsp     vanilla
     1 tsp     almond flavoring
     2 3/4 cup flour
          FROSTING
     1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
     2 Tbsp    cream or milk
     1 1/2 tsp vanilla (not Mexican, unless you like tan frost-
               ing)
               food coloring

PROCEDURE
          (1)  Cream together the shortening and sugar. Beat in
               the eggs, salt, and flavorings.

          (2)  Stir in the flour until blended.

          (3)  Chill in the refrigerator for an hour or two.

          (4)  Preheat oven to 375 deg. F.

          (5)  Roll out on a floured surface to a thickness of
               1/8 to 1/4 inch.  Cut with the cookie cutters of
               your choice (this was always a cause for argument
               in our family).

          (6)  Bake on ungreased cookie sheets until tan around
               the edges-about 8-10 minutes.

          (7)  Allow to cool.

          (8)  Make the frosting by beating together the sugar,
               milk, and vanilla until smooth. Divide and color
               each portion.

          (9)  Frost the cookies.

NOTES
     These cookies are about the only ones I know that taste
     better cooked and cold than as raw dough.

     Cinnamon red hots make good eyes for animals or Santas.

RATING
     Difficulty: easy to moderate.  Time: 15 minutes preparation,
     2 hours chilling, 15 minutes rolling and baking.  Precision:
     measure the ingredients.
