Mariah Carey's 'Merry Christmas II You' Cookies
Serves 4 dozen
1 cup Butter
1 cup Sugar
1 large Egg
1 teaspoon of Lemon Zest
1 tablespoon Milk
1 teaspoon Vanilla
2 3/4 cups All-purpose Flour
1 teaspoon Baking Powder
1/4 teaspoon Salt
Cream butter, gradually add sugar and beat until light and fluffy. Beat in egg, milk, vanilla and lemon zest. Combine flour, baking powder and salt. Gradually add to creamed mixture. Chill for easy handling. Roll out dough to 1/8" thickness on a lightly floured surface. Cut dough into festive holiday shapes with floured cookie cutters. Bake on a cookie sheet in a preheated 350-degree (Fahrenheit) oven for 10 minutes, or until lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool. Decorate with icing and green and red sprinkles.
Place cookies on a plate beside the Christmas Tree with a tall glass of milk for Santa Claus on Christmas Eve!
