Recipe

Pink Ribbon Cookies

  1. 2 sticks butter, softened
  2. 3/4 cup sugar
  3. 2 eggs
  4. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  5. 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  6. 1 (16-ounce) container vanilla frosting
  7. 1 to 2 drops red food color
  1. In a large bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed, cream butter and sugar. Add eggs and vanilla; beat 1 to 2 minutes, or until light and fluffy. Gradually add flour and beat 2 minutes, or until well blended.
     
  2. Form dough into 2 balls; cover and chill at least 2 hours.
     
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
     
  4. On a lightly floured work surface, using a rolling pin, roll 1 ball of dough to 1/4-inch thickness. Using a ribbon cookie cutter or a knife, cut ribbon shapes out of dough (see photo). Place cookies 1 inch apart on ungreased baking sheets. Repeat with remaining dough.
     
  5. Bake 10 to 12 minutes, or until cookies are golden around the edges. Remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
     
  6. In a medium bowl, combine frosting and red food color; mix well then frost cooled cookies.
