You'll love the flavor and simplicity of this easy to mold cookie dough.



With an electric mixer or hand mixer, cream butter, and sugar. Add egg and blend well. Add extracts and blend.


Mix salt and flour together separately, then gradually add to the wet ingredients. Knead into a ball.


Cover dough and chill for about 2 hours (this step is a must!).


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Working with about 1/3 of the batch at a time, briefly knead the chilled dough and roll about 1/8 inch to 1/4 inch thick on a floured surface.


Use cookie cutters to cut out shapes with the dough.


Bake cookies on parchment paper-lined baking trays for about 12-14 minutes, or until edges are slightly golden.


Transfer cookies to a cooling rack and frost as desired. I highly suggest using our homemade buttercream frosting recipe. Enjoy!
