2-3/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened

1-1/2 cups granulated sugar

1 egg

1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon almond extract

Red, Green and White Cookie Icing

Red and Dark Green Colored Sugars

White Sparkling or Pearlized Sugar

White Sugar Pearls


Preheat oven to 350°F.

In small bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt. In large bowl, beat butter and sugar with electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add egg and extracts; mix well. Add flour mixture, 1 cup at a time, mixing after each addition. Do not chill dough. Divide dough into 2 balls.

On floured surface, roll each ball into a circle approximately 12 inches diameter and 1/8 inch thick. Dip Cookie Hugger or “Ho-Ho” Word cookie cutters in flour before each use.

Bake cookies on ungreased cookie sheet 8 to 11 minutes or until cookies are lightly browned. Cool cookies completely.

Outline and fill-in cooled cookies with Cookie Icing. For “Ho-Ho” cookies, sprinkle with sugars; let set until icing is completely dry. For snowflake cookie, add white Cookie Icing detail to dried cookie; attach Sugar Pearls with dots of icing.

Makes about 3 dozen cookies
