Wonderful butter cookie!


  • 2 cups plus 6 tablespoons all purpose flour, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup powdered sugar

  • 1-1/4 cups butter, softened
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

  1. In a large mixing bowl combine the 2 cups of flour, baking powder, salt and sugars.
  2. Mix briefly.
  3. Add the butter in pieces, mix until the mixture has the consistency of cornmeal.
  4. Add the vanilla and mix just until a ball forms.
  5. Divide into 3 - 8 ounce balls.
  6. Add food coloring of your choice and 2 tablespoons of flour to each ball.
  7. Roll out each portion of dough between sheets of waxed paper into a rectangle about 11 x 8-1/2-inches.
  8. Peel wax paper and lay layers on top of each other in color order.
  9. Leave the wax paper at the bottom of the bottom layer to help with the rolling process.

  13. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

  1. These are the coolest halloween cookies i have ever seen! Thank you so much for linking up to Sunday’s Sweet Confessions over at mommy’s sweet confessions! Have a great day!

  2. Are the cookies supposed to be soft or crunchy when they are done? I cooked a batch last week and it didn’t look like they weren’t done so I kept them in the oven for 28 minutes and they came out crunchy…I think I over cooked them. I’m trying another batch tomorrow and sticking to the 17-19 minutes.
