These are cute looking cookies, especially, to give away. They are basic sugar cookies, not my recipe though but Wilton’s. I have tons of Wilton baking pans, however, almost never use their recipes, I think I used only their Madeleines once and it was so good too. This particular one is not bad, but then again, it’s just a simple sugar cookies recipe, smile. Try it, you'll love it.

Following is the WILTON Snowflake Sugar Cookies recipe
1 cup (2 sticks butter) softened ($1.50)
1 ½ cups granulated sugar (.50)
1 egg (.20)
1 ½ teaspoons Wilton Clear Vanilla Extract ($1.00)
½ teaspoon Wilton No-Color Almond Extract (.20)
2 ¾ cups all-purpose flour ($1.20)
1 teaspoon salt (.0)
Beat butter and sugar at medium speed with electric mixer until well blended.
Beat in egg, vanilla and almond extracts. Mix well.
Combine flour and salt and gradually add to butter mixture. Beat until well blended.
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Spray cavities with vegetable pan spray or Wilton Bake Easy spray.
Press the dough into the cavities, filling 2/3 full.
Bake 9-10 minutes or until light brown around the edges.
Cool in pan 5 minutes before turning over and tapping lightly to remove cookies. If this is unsuccessful, I found gently lifting the edge of the cookie with my fingers and removing worked well.
Cool completely on cooling grid/rack.
