it's not like bead making doesn't seep in to other parts of my life!  I thought you might enjoy these sugar cookies  - that have been a staple in my kitchen for decades!

Combine confectioners sugar with butter, then add egg & flavorings.  Sift dry ingredients together then blend into butter mixture.  Refrigerate for 30 minutes.  Lightly flour surface, roll out - adding flour as necessary to keep from sticking.  Bake at 350 degrees for 7-8 minutes or until slight color is visible.  Remove to cooling rack.

When cool, can be iced with a mixture of confectioner's sugar, water & vanilla extract.   Thicker mixture for piping design, thinner for spreadable icing. : )
