Hanukkah cut-out cookies

 
The Jewish Festival of Lights is almost here! Need a quick treat to bring to the fam dinner or something yummy to give your friends? Hanukkah Cut-out Cookies are totally tasty! Set 'em out during the family game of dreidel and enjoy! 

What you'll need:

½ cup unsalted butter (one stick) at room temperature
1 cup sugar
1 large egg
1 T. lemon juice
1 tsp. grated lemon rind (use a fine cheese grater on the skin of your lemon - only the yellow skin, not the white rind underneath!)
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups unbleached white flour
1 tsp. baking powder

*Will also need Hanukkah cookie cutters and a squeeze bottle with small tip for decorating. A French’s (or other) mustard container works great for this! 


What you'll do:

1. Beat butter until creamy using electric mixer. Add in sugar, egg, lemon juice and rind vanilla; beat.
2. Sift flour and baking powder by hand, working dough into a ball. Form three balls and flatten them into circles. Wrap each circle in plastic wrap and freeze 20 to 30 minutes.
3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
4. Flour work surface and rolling pin, and roll dough out to a thin sheet.

5. Use the cookie cutter to cut out as many cookies as desired.
6. Bake 10 to 12 minutes until edges of cookies start to turn golden brown.
7. Let cool 5 minutes before moving them with a spatula to waxed paper. Let cool for at least 20 minutes before frosting. 


Frosting

What you'll need:

1 cup powdered sugar
1 T. lemon juice
½ tsp. vanilla
2 to 3 tsp. milk
1 to 2 drops blue food coloring (optional)


What you'll do:

1. In a small mixing bowl, whisk sugar, lemon juice and vanilla together.
2. Gradually add in milk until frosting is thick enough to spread.
3. Stir in food coloring, one drop at a time. If frosting gets too runny, add more sugar.
4. Pour into plastic bottle and drizzle onto cookies. Decorate with zig-zag lines, polka dots or any other design you choose.
5. Let cookies set for 30 minutes before placing in a plastic wrap-lined tin.
