  Copyright  Susi Nuss, All rights reserved - Celebrate the holidays by making a batch of decorated rolled sugar cookies in the shape of baskets. A free Christmas Cookie recipe. - cookierecipe.jpg (18936 bytes)


1 cup sugar
cup shortening (part butter or margarine)
2 eggs
1 tsp. lemon flavoring

2 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt


Mix sugar, shortening, eggs and lemon flavoring until creamy. In a separate bowl mix flour, baking powder and salt. Combine the contents of the two bowls, blending completely. Chill dough at least 1 hour.

Heat oven to 400. Roll out chilled dough on lightly floured surface. This cookie is cut with a two piece cookie cutter. Cut out the overall shape with the larger basket shaped tin cookie cutter first. It is helpful to wait to cut the handle opening after the dough has been placed on a cool ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake 6 to 8 minutes or until cookies are a delicate golden color. Thinner cookies will bake more quickly. When cookies are removed from the oven, carefully place them on racks to cool.

When the cookies are completely cool use colored icing to decorate.
