Christmas Crinkles



Recipe created for the Darby Field Inn by Chef Waneeta Marquis

Ingredients

½ cup butter
2 cups sugar
1 tbsp vanilla  
4 eggs
3 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
½ cup powdered sugar
red and/or green food coloring

Directions

Mix butter, sugar and vanilla in a large bowl.

Stir in eggs, one at a time.

Stir in flour, baking powder and salt.

Add food coloring until desired color is reached; you may divide dough beforehand to make two different colored cookies.

Cover and refrigerate at least 1/2 hour. 

Preheat the oven to 350°.

Line cookie sheet with parchment paper and grease lightly with baking spray.

Drop dough by teaspoonfuls into powdered sugar; roll around to coat and shape into balls. 

Place about 2 inches apart on cookie sheets.

Bake 10 – 12 minutes, or until almost no imprint remains when touched lightly in center. Immediately remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks.

Yield: 4 dozen cookies.
