  • 1 1/2 c. butter softened (3 sticks)
  • 2 c. sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 5 c. cake flour
  • Cutler's Glaze
  • 4 c. powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. almond emulsion* or almond extract
  • 1/2 tsp. meringue powder**


  1. Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs and vanilla and mix until blended well. Combine baking powder, salt and flour in a separate bowl. Add to dough and mix. To make dough easier to work with, chill before rolling. On a lightly floured surface roll to about 1/4 inch thick and cut cookies. Bake at 350 F for 10-12 minutes. Cookies are done when top is slightly cracked and no longer looks wet. Edges may be slightly browned.


  1. Place powdered sugar in a large bowl. Add almond emulsion or almond extract to the powdered sugar, along with water, a little at a time whisking to combine. Continue whisking until smooth. Add just enough water to make a smooth glaze that stays on a knife when the knife is dipped in the glaze. Glaze the cookies by dipping the cookie into the glaze in a bowl and removing quickly when coated. Place cookies on rack or cookie sheet until glaze sets.

Tips (source: A Bountiful Kitchen)

  1. *Almond emulsion is sold at specialty cooking stores (Orson Gygi's in Salt Lake City) or stores where cake decorating supplies are sold.
  2. ** Meringue powder is also sold at specialty cooking stores. Cutler's uses meringue powder to create a shiny effect on their glaze. It is optional when making the glaze.
  3. -If the glaze starts to get too stiff, add a small amount of water until desired consistency.

Recipe Notes

[My 2 Cents]
The thicker these cookies are the better! Be sure not to roll them too thin, the recipe is perfect as a thick, soft and moist sugar cookie.
