Christmas Cookies with Icing

Christmas Cookies with Icing
Serves 5 | Prep under 30 mins

Dry Ingredients
3 cups of flour
Half a teaspoon of baking soda
Half a teaspoon of baking powder
Half a cup of butter at room temperature
Half a cup Crisco shortening

Wet Ingredients
eggs, beaten
1 cup of sugar
1 teaspoon of vanilla
A quarter teaspoon of salt

For the optional icing
1 box of confection sugar
Several different small colored bottles of food coloring and/or optional cookie sprinkles 
1. Mix the mostly dry ingredients together like you would pie crust dough, and combine well.
Mix the wet ingredients separately. Then combine all the ingredients well together and chill the
batter for at least one hour so that it will roll out well.
2. Take a fist sized amount of dough and roll it out with a rolling pin on a very lightly floured
surface. Take care not to use too much flour because if too much gets into the dough it will
affect the way the cookies bake. Roll it out to about a quarter inch thickness and cut the dough using
your favorite cookie cutter. Roll up the scrap dough and “recycle” it into the bowl and take
another fist sized amount and repeat.
3. Bake at 190 degrees Celsius (375 degrees Fahrenheit) for 5-6 minutes on a lightly greased cookie sheet and watch the cookies carefully. For the optional icing just take about half a cup of the confection sugar and add just enough water to make a slightly runny paste. Add a few drops of the food coloring to get the
color that you want. You can add cookie sprinkles on top of the icing, too.
