Dutch Holiday Cookies

Dutch Holiday Cookies



1/2 pound butter

2 cups sugar

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla

3 1/2 cups flour

2 teaspoons baking soda

1 teaspoon cider vinegar


Mix together first 5 ingredients. Mix vinegar and baking soda together before adding to dough. Chill for 2 hours. Roll out very thin between tea towels or patterned tablecloth until pattern can be seen through dough. Cut out with cookie cutters. Bake at 350F for 5 minutes (or longer if thicker) on ungreased cookie sheet. Decorate.

Note: The tea towels/patterned tablecloth thing is not particularly noticeable if you are also frosting and decorating the cookies. It's suggested that you don't bother with that step if you are thickly decorating the cookies. I suggest using butter frosting; it keeps the cookies moist and it tastes very good and is versatile.

Yield: About 5 dozen, depending on cookie thickness
