Incredibly easy. The cookies have raisins, making it sound healthy.
1 1/2 cups butter
3 cups flour
1 cup granulated sugar
4 teaspoons cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
Tiny box of raisins
Star cookie cutter
Preheat oven to 350F.
Ready…dump everything in the bowl!
Mix! The dough is going to be pretty thick. If it’s not, add a bit more flour, and work that dough.
Dust some flour down and roll out until the dough is 1/8″ thick. Roughly. Doesn’t have to be exact. Break out the star cookie cutter and start cutting and pasting the cut-out stars to a greased cookie sheet. You can try using a knife to cut out the shapes, but it’s harder than it sounds.
I tried the knife tactic. I had the flour sprinkled on the counter, the dough rolled out, and then began digging in my cupboards for my star cookie cutter, only to discover it had been stolen by magic elves. Great. Broke out the pointy weaponry and tried eyeballing the star design. It was bad.
On the bright side, I now have a new star cookie cutter, along with some flower and some blobby cookie cutters, as they all came part of a package. Maybe the latter cookie cutters are supposed to be clouds or something. Or maybe a bush. I bet that’s what it is.
If you’re using a smaller cookie cutter, you’ll want to slice up the raisin into slivers. Chop up the raisins (if needed) and smoosh into star cookies.
Bake for 6-8 minutes. Makes 2-3 dozen, depending on the size of your cookie cutter and how much dough you ate.
