These are so cute and a really fun gift for teacher appreciation!
These ones don't spread when they bake...they are crisp and
a little flavorless...but great with frosting!
2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for rolling
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Mix, separate into 2 balls...press into disks...and place in a ziploc bag
and set in the fridge for 2 hours...or the freezer for about 20 minutes.
Then remove, roll out on floured surface and bake 325 for about 12 minutes.
This stuff is made with egg whites and not water...so it forms
a crisp sweet glaze that dries hard and shiny. It is so fun to decorate with...
but I had a horrible time with it in the humid south...it just wont set up there! Sorry!
3 egg whites
2 cups of powdered sugar
1 drop of essential oil flavoring (I used citrus bliss)
food coloring (I used black)
Then you have a perfect piping bag.
Now it will be runnier.
We had a fun time making these...and since we homeschool...
I'm the teacher and so I guess I get all these cookies!
These would be perfect in a cellophane bag tied with a bow!
