Total Time



1 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

1 cup sugar

1 large Land O Lakes® Egg

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking powder


5 cups powdered sugar

1/4 cup water

2 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

Food color, if desired


Decorator sugars, edible sprinkles, etc.

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    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.

  2. STEP 2

    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.

  3. STEP 3

    Heat oven to 400°F.

  4. STEP 4

    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.

  5. STEP 5

    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.

  6. STEP 6

    Glaze cooled cookies; decorate as desired. Let stand until set.
