Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup whole-wheat or spelt flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup margarine (not light), softened
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 tsp almond or maple extract
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp water

Directions

  • In a large mixing bowl, cream the margarine and brown sugar.
  • Beat in extracts and water.
  • Separately, whisk together flours, baking powder and cornstarch.
  • Slowly blend flour into the creamed mixture. Mix until well blended.
  • Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes or up to 1 week.
  • Preheat oven to 375F.
  • Roll out dough fairly thin (about 1/8") on a floured surface.
  • Cut with cookie cutters and place 1" apart on cookie sheets (tip: flip sided sheets upside down for more even browning).
  • Bake 10 minutes, and cool completely on sheets.

Notes

Slightly crispy, deliciously caramel-flavoured and extraordinarily beautiful cut-out sugar cookies, made in a small batch for that special someone, are a hit in any goody basket! Frost with royal icing if you'd like, these are not too sweet alone.
