Cinnamon Star Cookies

Another recipe Dana has shared with us. Yum, these all look delicious!


2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup softened unsalted butter
2/3 cup sugar
2 tablespoons firmly packed brown sugar
2 1/2 tablespoons milk
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
3/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon salt
2 eggs


Beat all ingredients on low until combined. On medium, beat until well blended. Form dough into a ball, wrap wih plastic wrap and refrigerate for 3 hours. (I usually make the dough the day before and refrigerate overnight. I don't wrap it in plastic. I just leave the dough in the mixing bowl and cover with plastic wrap.) Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Using half the dough at a time, roll the dough 1/4 of an inch thick, on a floured board, with floured rolling pin. Cut dough into shapes. Place cookies 1 inch apart on greased cookie sheet. Bake 12-15 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on wire racks. Frost with icing and decorate after the cookies are cooled.

2 cups confectioner's sugar
2 tablespoons milk

Mix until it's at the consistency that you want. You may need to add a little bit more sugar or milk until it's the right consistency. Frost as desired.
