I’ve often thought of taking all my favorite recipes and making a cookbook with them, but I’ve never taken the time to rewrite all my recipes onto those little recipe cards.
One thing I’m considering, though, is making a Blurb Photobook comprised of all my favorite recipes and images. What a great way to treasure my great-grandma’s cutout cookie recipe!
Grandma’s Favorite Cut-Outs
(makes 2 dozen)
2 1/2 cups flour
1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1/4 tsp almond extract
1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp milk mixed with 1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1. Cream the butter and sugar together. Add the egg, almond extract, and vanilla extract. Beat well until smooth, then add the milk/baking powder mixture.
2. Sift together the flour, salt, and baking soda, and slowly add to other ingredients. When all the flour is incorporated, refrigerate the dough for about an hour. Note: You can refrigerate the dough up to 2 days before working with it.
3. Roll out the dough with a rolling pin, using a generous amount of white flour to prevent it from sticking. Cut it out using the cookie cutters of your choice.
4. Bake on an ungreased cookie sheet at 350° for 10 minutes. The edges should be just barely browned. Cool on the sheet for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack.
