This is the first year I haven't made royal icing and tinted many small batches in Christmas colors
and they taste just as good and look just as pretty
made a lot of cookies
A glass of ice cold milk is all I need
2/3 cup butter flavored crisco
3/4 cup sugar
1 tbsp plus 1 tsp milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp lemon extract
1 large egg
2 cups self rising flour
Mix crisco, sugar, milk and extracts until creamy. Add egg, mix well, add flour until until mixed. Do not over mix the batter. Bake at 375 until done.
From there, let your imagination and Christmas creativity run wild!
