Day 13: Buttery Bow Cookies

Buttery Bow Cookies


* 3 cups all-purpose flour
* 1 teaspoon baking powder
* 1/4 teaspoon salt
* 1 cup cold butter, cubed
* 1 egg, lightly beaten
* 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
* 3 tablespoons butter, melted
* Red and green colored sugar


* In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt; cut in butter until crumbly. Combine egg and cream; gradually beat into crumb mixture until a ball forms. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes or until easy to handle.
* Divide dough into three portions. On a lightly floured surface, roll each portion into an 8-in. x 6-in. rectangle. Brush with melted butter; sprinkle with colored sugar. Cut into 8-in.-long x 1/4-in.-wide strips. Place 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets; form into bows.
* Bake at 350° for 10-12 minutes or until bottoms are lightly browned. Remove from pans to wire racks. Yield: 6 dozen.
