Additional Information

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Step 2

In medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt. In large bowl, beat butter and sugar with electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add egg and extracts; mix well. Do not chill dough; divide into 2 balls.

On floured surface, roll each ball into a circle approximately 12 in. diameter x 1/8 in. thick. Dip cookie cutter in flour before each use.

Bake same-sized cookies together on ungreased cookie sheets 8-11 minutes or until cookies are lightly browned. Cool completely.

Step 3

Prepare Color Flow Icing with confectioners' sugar, following package instructions. Tint portions of icing a variety of colors with icing color. Outline cookies and clothing with full-strength icing; fill in with thinned icing. Immediately position sprinkles and sugars. Let set.

Step 4

Add hair, facial features, shoes, clothing and other details using full-strength icing. Let dry overnight.

*Variation: Substitute Cookie Icing for tinted Color Flow Icing. Decorate as directed above.

Dad's Perfect Family Cookies is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I had a really hard time with the stability of this cake. I baked a pound cake in the pan and still the head was really unstable. It was a cute finished product, but I had to use internal support to keep the head on. Definitely not a pan to use for any cake less dense than a pound cake.
