Mom’s Butter Cookies

These are so simple but they are my all time favorite!

1 1/2 level cup of flour
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1 egg yolk
1/2 tsp. vanilla

Place all ingredients in a mixing bowl and mix until a putty like consistency is obtained. Roll out sections to 1/4″ and use your favorite cookie cutters. Bake at 350 for 8 to 10 minutes until golden brown.
To make a simple but tasty icing, mix 2 cups of powered sugar with enough water until you have a spreadable consistency (it doesn’t take much water). Add some food coloring and sprinkle with your favorite candy decorations.

RASPBERRY SNOWBALLS


The two halves of these raspberry jam filles cookies form a rounded shape that when dusted with powdered sugar they look like wintry snowballs.


1 cup butter, softened

1/2 teaspoon vanila
1/8 teaspoon almond extract

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup pecans, finely chopped

1/3 cup seedless raspbery jam
1/3 cup powdered sugar, sifted

  • Heat oven to 350°F. Combine butter, 1 cup powdered sugar, vanilla and almond extract in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Reduce speed to low; add flour and salt. Beat just until combined. (Mixture will be dry and crumbly.) Stir in pecans.
