Wow! Sorry folks…it’s been a LONG time since I’ve last posted. But here we go again….I have quite a bit to share! =)
1/2 lb. butter (1 cup), softened
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp. vanilla or anise extract
4 cups flour
4 tsp. baking powder
3-3/4 cup confectioners’ sugar
5 to 6 T. milk
2 tsp. vanilla extract
Flaked coconut or assorted sprinkles
In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs and extract. Combine flour and baking powder; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well.
Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350 for 9-11 minutes or until bottoms are lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool completely.
For icing, in a small bowl, combine the confectioners’ sugar, milk, and vanilla until smooth. Dip cookies, allowing excess to drip off. Place on waxed paper; decorate as desired. Let stand until set.
Yield: 7 dozen
These little cookies are a pretty good, light little tea cookie. They have a different texture than a normal sugar cookie…a more cake-like texture, probably due to all the eggs.
