My grandma made these cookies every year. She owned her own business and she and her secretary would bake these cookies for their clients as Christmas gifts. Of course we family members got some too. After grandma retired and I had grown up, she and I would make these cookies as gifts for friends and family. This recipe makes a LARGE BATCH. They are a work of love.

How to Make Grandma's Christmas Butter Cookies

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. In large bowl(use my large 6qrt casserole bowl), cream butter & sugar until light and fluffy.
  3. Add eggs & vanilla; blend together.
  4. In another bowl, combine flour, baking powder, & salt. Then add to butter mixture.
  5. Knead/mix (inside bowl) thoroughly-(at this point I have to use my hands).
  6. Load dough into cookies press and press into desired shapes onto non-greased cookies sheets. Decorate with colored sugars as desired.
  7. Bake 6 to 8 minutes until edges are light brown-DO NOT OVER BAKE.
  8. HINT: If dough stays too sticky, add a little more Wondra flour and knead into dough. Also, dampen paper towel and cover dough in-between pressing cookies onto sheets so dough will not dry out.
