    1-1/2 dozen

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 can (16 ounces) vanilla frosting
  • 1 cup white sprinkles
  • 3/4 cup blue decorating icing
  • 1/4 cup black decorating icing
  • 36 candy eyes
  • Additional sprinkles and candies

Directions

  • In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and extracts. In another bowl, whisk flour, cinnamon, salt and baking powder; gradually beat into creamed mixture. Shape into a disk; wrap in plastic. Refrigerate until firm enough to roll, about 1 hour.
  • Preheat oven to 350°. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough to 1/8-in. thickness. Cut with a floured 4-in. cookie cutter. Place 1 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake until light brown, 9-11 minutes. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
  • Spread cookies with vanilla frosting and decorate with sprinkles. Add face, hands and feet with blue icing; add mouth with black icing. Use additional sprinkles for teeth; add eyes. If desired, add additional sprinkles or candies for decoration.
  • To Make Ahead: Dough can be made 2 days in advance. Wrap in plastic and place in an airtight container. Store in the refrigerator.
  • Freeze option: Freeze undecorated cookies in airtight freezer containers. To use, thaw in covered containers and decorate as desired.
