Since I was a little girl, I have memories of making these “cut-out and decorate” Christmas cookies with my mom and my sister. I’m so excited to be able to make them with my son and keep the tradition going!
3 c sifted flour
1 c brown sugar
½ tsp. baking powder
1 ½ tsp. cinnamon
½ tsp. ginger
½ tsp. cloves
½ tsp. nutmeg
1 c butter
2 eggs, beaten
1 tsp. vanilla
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Sift together dry ingredients into a mixing bowl.
Cut in butter until mixture resembles fine crumbs.
Stir in eggs and vanilla.
Chill. Roll out dough to ¼-inch thick on a floured cutting board or wax paper. Cut into shapes with cookie cutters.
Bake 9 minutes at 350 degrees or until edges are lightly browned.
For the Frosting, you will need:
1 egg white
1/8 tsp. cream of tartar
1/8 tsp. vanilla
1 ¾ c sifted powdered sugar (10x)
Beat egg white, cream of tartar, and vanilla until foamy.
Beat in powdered sugar gradually until frosting stands in firm peaks.
Tint with food coloring. Frost and decorate cookies.
