Becky has spent her entire career cooking and baking, which are also her favorite hobbies outside of work. For her, time spent in the kitchen not only relieves stress, but is lots of fun as well. Becky’s love for baking began as a child, standing on a chair next her mom, adding ingredients and mixing up dough.

These crisp, tender buttery cut-out cookies can be decorated in inviting fish shapes.
Combine 1 cup butter, sugar, egg and vanilla in bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add flour and baking powder; beat at low speed until well mixed.
Divide dough into thirds. Shape each third into ball. Wrap each in plastic food wrap; flatten to 1/2 inch. Refrigerate 1 hour or until firm.
Heat oven to 400°F.
Roll out dough, one-third at a time, on lightly floured surface (keeping remaining dough refrigerated) to 1/8-inch thickness. Cut with 3-inch fish-shaped cookie cutter. Place 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 6-10 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Let stand 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets. Cool completely.
Combine powdered sugar, water and 2 tablespoons butter in bowl. Beat at medium speed, adding additional water, if necessary, for desired glazing consistency. Tint with food color, if desired.
Glaze cooled cookies; decorate as desired. Let stand until set.

I usually make the Land O Lakes cut out recipe that adds 2 T of Orange Juice to the batter. I didn't have any in the fridge, so followed this which omits the juice and they were EXCELLENT. I also couldn't wait to refrigerate for an hour and used the dough right away. No problem, they were perfect!
