Butter Christmas Cookies

My daughter and I made these Christmas cookies for her to bring to her class on the last day of school. Since we were moving she wanted to share the cookies to say goodbye.

When we went shopping for supplies it went something like this:

Me: Do you want to make Christmas cookies for your friends or just all different kinds of cookies?

Daughter: I think Christmas cookies

Me: Okay, then lets get green and red sprinkles for your cookies.

Daughter: I want the star sprinkles. Lets just make all different shapes of cookies for my friends.

Me: Are you sure?

Daughter: Yes, I want to star sprinkles.

Upon arrival home......

Daughter: Lets make our cookies Christmas shapes!

So here are our Christmas cookies with birthday star sprinkles:

  • 1 1/2 cups of flour
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/2 tsp talk 
  • 1 tsp vanilla

  • Place all ingredients in mixing bowl and mix until a putty-like consistency is obtained. 
  • Refrigerate for a couple of hours
  • Roll dough out and cut out with cookie cutters
  • Bake 8-10 minutes at 350 degrees, until edges are brown. 
  • Cool, then frost if desired. 
I used this recipe for icing from All Recipes.
