Irish Flag Cookies

Irish Flag Cookies

1 cup butter
1 egg
1 1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cream of tartar

Cream together butter and confectioners’ sugar in a large bowl. Beat in vanilla and egg
extract. Mix well. In a medium sized bowl, stir together the flour, baking soda and cream
of tartar. Blend into the butter mixture. Divide dough into thirds and shape them into
balls.

Taking 1/3 of the dough at a time, roll out dough to 1/4 inch thick on a floured surface.
With a knife, cut dough into rectangles about 2 inches high by 3 inches long. (6 x 8 cm).
Place rectangles on an ungreased cookie sheet, 2 inches apart. Bake in a preheated 350
degree F (175 degrees C) oven until they turn light brown. Cool completely on a wire rack.
Frost cookies with Irish Flag Frosting.

Make a 1 inch green stripe on the left side of the rectangles and a 1 inch orange strip on
the right side, leaving the middle one inch unfrosted.
