  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Optional: Decorating icing and sprinkles


  1. In a large bowl, cream butter and confectioners' sugar until light and fluffy, 5-7 minutes. Beat in egg. Combine flour and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well. Divide dough into thirds. Shape each into a ball, then flatten into a disk. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 350°. On a lightly floured surface, roll 1 portion of dough to 1/4-in. thickness. Cut with floured 2-1/2-in. shaped cutters.
  3. Place 1 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Press stamp into cookie. Repeat with remaining portions of dough. Bake until set, 8-10 minutes. Remove to wire racks to cool completely. Decorate as desired.
