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. : )
