BUTTERSCOTCH ROLLED COOKIES
ROLLED-COOKIES - Rolled cookies for the Christmas holidays
I almost never make these cookies except at Christmas time.
They just seem to be Christmas cookies. (I did make a batch
of heart shaped ones last Valentine's day for my then-
fiance.) I usually make these cookies in Christmas shapes
and frost them with green and red frosting. This is a good
recipe for kids to help out with.
INGREDIENTS (3 dozen)
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup soft butter
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 3/4 cups
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 cup confectioners sugar
1 egg white, slightly beaten
1 Tbsp melted butter
1/8 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla
food coloring (optional)
(1) Mix sugar, salt and butter thoroughly. Add egg and
vanilla, and beat till fluffy.
(2) Sift flour, baking powder, soda, and cinnamon and
add to mixture.
(3) Chill well, several hours, or over night.
(4) Make the glaze: mix the glaze ingredients together
(5) Roll the dough out until it is 1/8 inch thick. Cut
into fancy shapes and bake on ungreased cookie
sheet for 8-10 minutes at 350 deg. F. Let cool,
It helps to keep most of the dough in the refrigerator while
you are cutting shapes. It cuts much better when it is cold.
These are time-consuming and fairly difficult, but worth it.
Difficulty: moderate. Time: 30 minutes preparation, over-
night chill, 1 hour cutting and baking. Precision: measure
