A friend of our family recently pulled their basket of cookie cutters out to show my daughter. She had such a great time looking at all the shapes, and discussing the holidays that each one went with. Since then I’ve kept an eye out for cookie cutters in stores, and have been surprised to find that they’re not all that easy to get! Luckily, the well tested recipes for cookies are handed down through our community. Go find some cookie cutters and show the kids how it’s done!
Provided by Candy Carroll, as printed in “A Taste of Heaven” from the Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Cotulla, 2003:
3 cups flour
1 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp baking soda
1 1/4 c margarine (not corn oil)
1 cup sugar
2 eggs, well beaten
1 tsp vanilla
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix first 4 ingredients until they resemble pie crust, before it is rolled out. Add sugar and mix again. Add eggs and vanilla and mix. Roll thin and cut in any shape desired.
Bake until edges are light brown. Makes quite a few cookies, depending on size of cookie cutters used.
