Serves: 4-5 dozen
Ingredients
  • 1 cup butter (2 sticks)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 ¾ cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • Red food coloring
  • Blue food coloring
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven @ 350 degrees.
  2. Mix butter till creamy. Gradually add sugar and beat until light and fluffy. Beat in egg, milk, and vanilla. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Gradually add to creamed mixture. Use food coloring paste to tint one third of the dough red and another third blue, kneading the dough to evenly distribute the color. Leave the last third untinted. Chill for ease in handling (about 1 hr).
  3. Roll out cookie dough on lightly floured surface to ⅛” thickness. Cut out a bunch of larger stars. With a medium-size cutter, cut a star from the center of each large star. Now use the medium stars to fill in the centers of contrasting larger stars lightly pressing them in place. Press the medium stars into the larger stars' centers. Using a third, smaller cutter, you can even create tricolored stars.
  4. Bake for 8 - 10 minutes.
