There's no better way to turn your baked goods into a holiday specialty than by making them into an ornament. I'll poke a whole through the top of the cookies before baking so that I can string a ribbon through. Once they're done, I'll decorate them with colored icing or edible glitter to give them a nice holiday glow.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for rolling
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 tablespoons butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla bean

DIRECTIONS

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.

Sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt and set aside. In a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat the butter and sugar until fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla beans and continue to beat until well combined. Slowly add the flour mixture until all of it is combined. Wrap the dough and chill for at least 1 hour. 

Roll out the dough until it is about ¼-inch thick, and then cut out cookies in any desired shape. Place the cookies on a baking sheet and poke wholes through the top. Bake the cookies for about 10 minutes or until golden brown. When the cookies have cooled, decorate with desired icing and sprinkles and tie a ribbon through the hole.
