  • Vanilla Extract

Step One

In a large bowl mix up flour, cornstarch and salt. Once you’ve got this all mixed up, set it aside to use later.

Step Two

In a stand mixer, add butter and mix. As the butter is mixing, add in some granulated sugar. You just want the butter to reach a softened consistency.

Step Three

Crack one egg into the bowl with almond extract and sour cream. Mix this up to a pudding-like consistency.

Step Four

Mix in your flour mixture into the bowl with your liquid batter. Once the mixture is all combined, you should have thick cookie dough.

Step Five

Place the cookie dough into the middle of two pieces of wax paper. Use a rolling pin to flatten out the dough.

Step Six

Use a cookie cutter to cut the dough into circle shapes, then place them onto a prepared cookie sheet.

Step Seven

Place the cookies into the oven at 375 degrees until they are golden brown.

Step Eight

Make your icing in a stand mixer. Start by adding in butter and then pouring powdered sugar into the butter. While the butter and sugar are mixing, add in about two tablespoons of cream or milk and one teaspoon of vanilla. Once you have a thick buttercream, add in your food coloring.
