Cut-out Cookies~~~~~

Got those done yesterday evening and they turned out like they always do.....Great!  It is the best recipe I have found for them and very simple.  I do Christmas trees, horses of course and big stars.  Emilee doesn't know it but she will be helping me decorate them when we get to Phoenix....

Here is the recipe for my cookies:

1 cup butter
1 1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
3 cups flour
1/2 teas baking soda
1/2 teas vanilla

Cream the butter, sugar and eggs together while beating lightly, add vanilla.  Add flour and baking soda.  Slowly roll 1/4 inch thick and then cut out.  Bake at 350 for 8 to 10 minutes.

I use a very simple frosting as well.

1/2 cup butter (softened)
1 teas vanilla
1 lb powdered sugar
1 - 2 tble milk
1 egg white (beaten)

Mix butter and vanilla.  Gradually add powdered sugar and egg white.  Add milk to achieve desired consistency.  Add food coloring to bowls of divided frosting and have fun.

Today I plan to do a little shopping, hoping that the crowds have settled down.  Don't plan to do much but need to get a few things yet.  Hope everyone enjoys their day of rest.

Until next time~~~~Travel safely
