Total Time



1 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

1 large Land O Lakes® Egg

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 cup powdered sugar

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar

1/2 teaspoon baking soda


Decorator sugars

Decorator gels

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Combine butter, egg and vanilla in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add all remaining cookie ingredients. Beatn at low speed until dough forms a ball.

  2. STEP 2

    Shape dough into 2 (10x1 1/2-inch) logs on lightly floured surface. Roll in decorator sugar. Wrap in plastic food wrap; refrigerate at least 1 hour.

  3. STEP 3

    Heat oven to 375°F.

  4. STEP 4

    Roll log into egg shape. Cut into 1/4-inch slices with sharp knife. Place 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Reshape into egg shape, if necessary. Bake 6-9 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheets; remove to cooling rack. Cool completely. Decorate cookies with decorator sugars and gels as desired.

Tip #1

- For tinted eggs, add 10 to 12 drops food color to dough before shaping into logs.

Tip #2

- Decorator gels are available in small tubes in the baking aisle of the supermarket.

Tip #3

- Cookie dough logs can be frozen up to 2 months. Tightly wrap in plastic food wrap; place into plastic freezer bags. To use, thaw in refrigerator; slice and bake as directed.
