My friend, Gloria gave me this recipe...she makes these cookies every year for her Christmas family get-togethers. I wanted to save this recipe to my Recipe Box. Nutmeg can be used in place of mace.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 cup white sugar

  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon ground mace

  • 1 cup butter, softened

  • 1 egg, beaten

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 3 tablespoons heavy cream

  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar

  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 ½ tablespoons heavy cream

  • 1 pinch salt

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets.

  2. In a large bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and mace. Cut in the butter using a pastry blender or rub between your fingers. When butter pieces are no larger than pea size, stir in the egg, vanilla and heavy cream. Blend thoroughly. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out to 1/8 inch in thickness. Cut into desired shapes with cookie cutters. Place cookies 1 1/2 inches apart onto cookie sheets.

  3. Bake for 5 to 8 minutes in the preheated oven, until the edges begin to brown. Remove from baking sheets to cool on wire racks. Cool completely before frosting.

  4. To make the frosting: In a medium bowl, beat the confectioners' sugar, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla, 1 1/2 tablespoons of cream and salt until smooth and creamy. Spread on top of cooled cookies. Let the frosting dry before storing or serving.
