Easter Cookies

My mom and I will be tackling cookies for Easter. Holiday cookies are apparently all around holiday cookies.

You need:

2 1/3 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
1 cup or 2 sticks of softened butter/margarine
1 egg
2 teaspoons of vanilla extract

Mix dry ingredients. Beat sugar and butter in a large bowl (electric mixer on medium) until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla, mix well. Gradually beat in dry mixture on low until well mixed. Refrigerate for 2 hours or overnight until firm.

Roll out dough to 1/8 inch thickness and cut. Place on greased baking sheets.

Bake in preheated oven at 375 degrees for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool for 1 minute. Place on wire racks and cool completely.

For the icing:
Mix 1 cup confectioner’s sugar, 3 1/2 teaspoons of milk, 2 teaspoons of light corn syrup, 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract and food coloring if you want. Mix until smooth.
