Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit. 
  2. Mix dry ingredients in mixing bowl. Beat eggs and melt butter separately. Add wet contents to dry mix. 
  3. Mix all contents together using electric mixer, or wooden spatula until all ingredients are well blended. 
  4. Roll dough into a ball using extra flour and your hands. Roll dough in between 2 cookie sheets with extra flour until dough is about 1/8″ thick.
  5. Use cookie cutter to cut into dough, placing cutter in flour before cutting dough (this prevents dough from sticking to cutter). 
  6. When cookie dough is carved into cookie shapes, transfer to cookie sheet on cookie tray (If you have a hard time removing cookie dough shapes, cut around cookie shapes on cookie sheets and transfer to cooke tray this way). 
  7. Bake cookies in oven for 12 minutes.
  8. Remove when done and transfer cookie sheet to countertop or wire cooling tray to cool.
  9. Add icing decoration of your choosing and enjoy!
