Cut-Out Shortbread Cookies
- 1 1/2 cups - butter, at room temperature
- 1 1/3 cups - Domino® Confectioners Sugar
- 1 tbsp - vanilla extract
- 2 2/3 cups - all-purpose flour
- Granulated sugar or colorful sprinkles for decorating
In a large bowl, combine butter, confectioners' sugar and vanilla. Beat until smooth. Gradually add flour until well-blended. Divide dough in half; flatten each into 1 inch thick disks on 2 pieces of plastic wrap (dough will be soft). Wrap and refrigerate several hours until firm.
Preheat oven to 325°F. On a lightly floured surface, with a floured rolling pin, roll half of the dough at a time to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut with floured star-shaped cookie cutters. Place 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Sprinkle tops lightly with granulated sugar. Bake 9-10 minutes or until set and lightly browned on the bottoms. Gather scraps; roll into a ball. You may need to refrigerate while you repeat rolling and cutting process on second disk. Remove baked cookies from oven and cool completely. Decorate with icing or with sprinkles.
