Thank you again, Betty Crocker. You’ve filled my evenings with scents of sugar and butter coming together in a fantastic, crunchy cookie melange. Here are two more cookie recipes that I made last night.
|1||pouch (1 lb 1.5 oz) Betty Crocker® sugar cookie mix|
|2||tablespoons Gold Medal® all-purpose flour|
|1/3||cup butter or margarine, softened|
|1||teaspoon ground cinnamon|
|Betty Crocker® red and green decorating icings|
- Heat oven to 375°F. In large bowl, stir cookie mix, flour, butter and egg until dough forms.
- Shape dough into 1-inch balls. In small bowl, mix sugar and cinnamon. Roll balls in sugar-cinnamon mixture. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets.
- Bake 11 to 12 minutes or until set. Cool 1 minute. Remove from cookie sheets. If desired, roll tops of warm cookies in additional sugar-cinnamon mixture. Cool completely, about 20 minutes. Decorate as desired using icing.

- Heat oven to 400°F. In large bowl, beat 1 1/4 cups powdered sugar and the butter with electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Add lemon peel, lemon juice and egg; blend well. Stir in flour and salt until well mixed. Fill cookie press with dough. Using the cookie press and bar plate, press a long ribbon of dough onto ungreased cookie sheet. Score the cookie dough at 2 1/4-inch intervals.
- Bake 5 to 8 minutes or until set but not brown. Cut cookies at score lines with sharp knife. Immediately remove from cookie sheets. Cool completely.
- In small bowl, mix 1 cup powdered sugar and enough lemon juice for desired drizzling consistency. Drizzle over cookies; let stand until set. Sprinkle with 2 teaspoons powdered sugar.

I haven’t put the glaze on these cookies yet. I don’t think I’ll be using it. Just a little powdered sugar before I present them should go over just as well.
