Ingredients

  • 2 cups butter, softened
  • 3 cups white sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon butter flavored extract
  • 7 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt

first Directions

  1. Cream margarine and sugar. Add eggs and flavorings and mix well. Stir flour, baking powder and salt together. Add to batter and mix well.
  2. CHILL 3-4 hours or overnight before using.
  3. Roll cookies out approximately 1/4 inch thick and insert cookie sticks at least 1/3 to 1/2 way into cookie.
  4. Bake cookies at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 8-10 minutes. This dough keeps well in a covered container in the refrigerator for a couple of weeks.
  5. Decorate as desired. Display 3-7 cookies in a 6 inch clay pot (depending on size of cookie). Weigh pot down with dried beans and cut a circle of Styrofoam to fit snugly into top. Add ribbons and enjoy.
