Ingredients

  • 1 cup salted butter cold and diced into 1 Tbsp pieces
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract or almond extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • nonpareils sprinkles(any color), colored sugar for decoration

Instructions

  • Butter a 13 x 9-inch baking dish and line with 2 sheets of parchment paper (one horizontally and one vertically), leaving a 1-inch over hang on all sides, set aside.
  • In a bowl of an electric stand mixer cream together butter, granulated sugar and vanilla extract until well combined. Slowly add in flour and cornstarch and mix until combined.
  • Press dough into an even layer in prepared pan, about 1/2 inch thickness (I did it with my hands first then used the bottom of a flat measuring cup to help smooth it out), and chill for about 30 minutes. Line 2 baking sheet pans with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • Lift dough from 13 x 9 baking dish using parchment overhang on all sides. Cut desired shapes using a cookie cutters and place on prepared pans, spacing them about 1 inch apart. Re-roll scraps as many times as needed to use up the dough.
  • Place cutouts in the refrigerator for at least one hour. Decorate with sprinkles and colored sugar if desired. When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350˚F.
  • Bake 8-10 minutes, or until edges are golden brown. Chill other sheet while one is baking. Cool completely then transfer to an airtight container and store at room temperature.
