Sugar Thin Christmas Cookies

Oops! I forgot to give you the recipe at the end of the blog!  Just like I said in the blog I just posted……this time of year, we are going in a million different directions and things get left behind!  Ok, so here it is:

Cream 1/2 cup butter with 1 cup sugar until light and fluffy.  Add 1 egg, 1 tablespoon cream and 1 teaspoon vanilla.

Sift together:  2 cups flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon baking powder. Add to the creamed mixture and (as Aunt Doris wrote in her recipe) “mix as if you meant it.”  🙂

Chill dough overnight.

Roll out a small quantity of dough at a time, very, very, thin, on a slightly floured surface.  Cut cookies out with small cutters.  Sprinkle with colored sugar.

Bake on a greased cookie sheet about 5 minutes in a 350 oven, until lightly browned.  (I like the ones that get a little too brown myself!)  Makes 10 dozen.

The postscript in Aunt Doris’ handwritten recipe is:  “Have them thin, that is the secret.”

I usually double the recipe, because they make small cookies, and it’s easy to eat a LOT of them pretty quickly because they are so good!
