Classic Sugar Cookies with Egg Yolk Paint


1 ½ cups confectioner's sugar
1 cup butter
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
½ tsp. almond extract
2 ½ cups flour
1 tsp. cream of tartar
1 tsp. baking soda
Colored sprinkles and/or egg yolk paint (recipe follows)

Cream sugar and butter with a mixer until fluffy.  Add egg and flavorings and mix well.

Sift dry ingredients together and stir into creamed mixture.  Cover in a Tupperware bowl and refrigerate for 2 to 3 hours.

Preheat oven to 375º.

Divide dough in half.  Roll out on surface lightly dusted with confectioner's sugar.  Cut with cookie cutters and place on ungreased cookie sheets covered with a silicone baking sheet for easy removal.  Bake for 7 to 8 minutes, until cookies begin turning a light brown at the edges.  Cool, then decorate with egg yolk paint.


1 egg yolk, beaten
¼ tsp. water
Food coloring

Prepare one recipe of egg yolk paint for every 2 colors desired.  Combine egg yolk and water and mix well.  Divide into 2 small Tupperware containers, custard cups or paper cups.  Stir in food coloring.  Keep tightly covered until ready for use.  If paint thickens, add a few drops of water.   Paint as desired for a colored glaze, and add colored sprinkles.
