2 cups all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon baking powder
1 stick plus 2 tablespoons (10 tablespoons) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 cup sugar
1 large egg
1 large egg yolk
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Dairy free / Dye Free Pink Frosting:
1/2 cup coconut oil
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla
1/4 cup coconut milk
2 tablespoons cherry preserves
Whisk the flour, salt and baking powder together.
Beat the butter at medium speed for a minute or so, until smooth.
Beat in the sugar and continue to beat for about 2 minutes, until the mixture is light and pale.
Add the egg and yolk and beat for another minute or two; beat in the vanilla.
When fully mixed, the dough will be soft, creamy and easy to manipulate.
Turn the dough out onto a counter and divide it in half.
Chill your dough in plastic wrap for 2 hours.
Roll out your dough to 1/4 inch thickness.
Use cookie cutters to make shapes.
Use a spatula to lift cookies onto a pan.
Any remaining dough can be squished into a ball and rolled out again for more cookies.
Bake in oven 350F for about 10 minutes.
Cream coconut oil until light.
Add vanilla and sugar.
Add coconut milk and preserves.
Beat on high until creamy.
