Valentine Butter Cookies With Rosewater
These are easier to manage than the other rosewater cookies I've made (too fragile). I know from past experience that they keep well, ship well, and look just super with royal icing.
You Will Need:
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
3 teaspoons rosewater
3 cups AP flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
Cream together the butter and sugar. Beat in egg. Stir in rosewater. Add flour and baking powder and mix well. Roll into a ball and chill several hours until firm.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
Roll cookies 1/2 inch thick and cut as desired. Transfer to an ungreased baking sheet and bake 5-7 minutes or until cookies turn brown at edges. Let stand on pan for a minute, then remove to a rack. Let cool before frosting and decorating.
