1½ cups icing sugar
1 cup butter, softened
½ tsp vanilla extract
1 large egg, lightly beaten
2½ cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cream of tartar

Colored Wilton icing


1) Preheat oven to 350°F.

2) In a large bowl, use a wooden spoon to mix together icing sugar and butter. Once incorporated, add vanilla and egg, stirring well to combine. Add flour, baking soda and cream of tartar, stirring until flour disappears.

3) Shape dough into a ball, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes to ensure easier handling.

4) After refrigeration, divide dough ball in half, keeping one half covered while working with the other. Roll out the dough on a floured surface to 1/4 to 1/2-inch thickness. Cut into shapes with any cookie cutter.
Bake for 8-10 minutes, just until edges are golden. Cool completely before decorating.

5) Using Wilton icing, decorate the tops of your cookies, covering completely with icing. Let icing dry before writing on top.

Yield: 18-20 cookies
