1 teaspoon

Directions

  1. Combine 1 cup sugar and butter in bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add sour cream, egg, orange zest, vanilla and orange extract; continue beating until well mixed. Add flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; beat at low speed until well mixed.
  2. Divide dough into thirds. Stir yellow food color into one-third of dough. Stir red food color into second third. Wrap each third in plastic food wrap. Refrigerate 1 hour or until firm.
  3. Heat oven to 375°F.
  4. Spoon 1 to 1 1/2-inch pieces from half of each color of dough randomly onto lightly floured surface (keeping remaining dough refrigerated). Press colors together to form circle. Roll out dough to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut with 2 to 2 1/2-inch star cookie cutter. Repeat with remaining dough.
  5. Place cookies 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Sprinkle with large grain sugar. Bake 5-7 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.
