Christmas Tree Cookies

From "A Charlie Brown Christmas Movie" recipe series. I did all of these and then we watched the movie! My kids and day care kids loved it!



  • 1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp. almond extract
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. cream of tartar


Mix confectioners' sugar, butter or margarine, egg, vanilla, and almond extract. Stir in flour, baking soda, and cream of tartar. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours.

Heat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Divide dough into halves. On lightly floured cloth-covered board, roll each half out to 3/16 inch thick. On lightly floured cloth-covered board. Cut into Christmas shapes.

Bake on parchment lined baking sheets for 7 to 8 minutes. Let cool on wire racks and decorate as desired.
