COOK TIME
12 Min

What's a cookie platter or exchange without a few Italian Christmas cookies? Well, you'll be all set with these easy-to-make, fun-to-decorate, everybody-loves 'em favorites.

What You'll Need:
  • 5 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 5 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup milk
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon lemon or almond extract
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 eggs

  • Glaze
  • 3 cups sifted confectioners' sugar
  • 4 tablespoons milk

  • Rainbow sprinkles and decorating sugar for topping (optional)
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degree F. Coat baking sheets with nonstick cooking spray.
     
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, oil, milk, salt, extract, lemon juice, and eggs. Roll dough into 1-inch balls and place on prepared baking sheets.
     
  3. Bake 12 to 15 minutes, until cookies are set but not brown. Let sit 5 minutes then transfer to wire rack to cool completely.
     
  4. In a medium bowl, combine glaze ingredients and stir until smooth.
     
  5. Dip tops of cooled cookies in glaze and place on wire rack then immediately decorate as desired.
     

Makes about 3 dozen cookies.

Options

If you want to decorate your cookies with multiple colors, separate glaze into smaller bowls and mix in food colors one drop at a time until reaching desired colors. If you want to add a flavor to your glaze, add a drop of your favorite extract.
