Recipe from Wonderful Ways to Prepare Cakes & Cookies
It's Christmas Eve! I can hardly believe it is upon us! I believe, when one is surrounded by loved ones, that moments happen that just melt our hearts. Especially during the holidays. With my two girls getting bigger with each passing day, I find those moments seem to occur more often. This year my baby is 18 months old--old enough to enjoy the spirit of the season, even if she doesn't fully understand what is actually going on. Today's cookies are in honor of these melting moments, and it is my wish that you all have plenty of melting moments this year. Yes, actually moments as well as the cookies. :)
1 cup butter, room temp
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
2 cup cake flour
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Either grease cookie sheets or line with parchment paper; set aside.
In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together the butter and sugar until it is light and fluffy.
Beat in the egg and vanilla extract.
Add the flour and beat until a stiff dough is formed.
Make small balls of dough and place on prepared cookie sheets.
Bake at 375 degrees F for about 15 minutes per batch.
Once out of the oven and while still warm, though be careful not to burn yourself, roll in the confectioners' sugar.
