Christmas Cookie Cutters:

– 10 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
– 3/4 cup cane sugar
– 1 egg
– 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
– 2 cups Einkorn Flour
– 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
– 1/4 teaspoon salt
– food coloring

1) In an electric mixer, cream butter and sugar for about 2 minutes.

2) Add the egg and vanilla and beat until mixed.

3) In a separate bowl, sift flour, baking powder and salt.

4) With mixer running, add flour mixture a little at a time until just incorporated.

5) Turn dough out onto wax paper (or plastic wrap) and chill in refrigerator for at least 1.5 hours.

6) Remove dough and let sit for 2 minutes. Coat flat surface and rolling paper with powdered sugar then roll out dough to about 1/4 inch in thickness. Cut with cookie cutters.

7) Bake at 375 for 7-10 minutes until just golden.

8) Let cool and decorate.

1) Add milk a little at a time (up to 2 tablespoons, usually I use 1.5) to 1 cup of powdered sugar and mix with a whisk. You want a sticky, runny consistency. Use food coloring to color.

Meg grew up in Connecticut and when she wasn’t busy pretending to be a mom, she was in the kitchen learning family recipes. She won over her husband, Alan, whom she met her freshman year at Stanford, with some very fancy homecooked meals. After working in finance and strategy for Gap and NBC-Universal, Meg returned to Stanford where she earned her MBA. Now with three kids of her own (Avery, 5; Brooks, 4 and Ryder 1), Meg’s husband doesn’t see too many of those fancy meals. But her kids eat very well! She believes good food is all it takes to make a friend, and she is grateful for all the friends she has made through her videos.
