Kinzi's Ramadan Cookies And Nizar's Video

This is a very easy sugar cookies recipe, courteousy of Kinzi. Nizar made a video of this recipe so it is very helpful to watch and follow the steps. Thank you Kinzi for the recipe and thank you Nizar for the video clip.

Cream together:

3/4 C. butter

1 C. sugar

2 eggs

1 t. vanilla

Mix in another bowl:

2 1/2 C. flour

1 t. baking soda

1 1/4 t. salt

Add flour mixture to butter mixture, , mix thoroughly and refrigerate at least a couple hours. On a floured surface, roll out dough 1/4 inch thick. Dip the rim of a a small tea glass in flour, use as a cookie cutter. Carefully peel away extra dough, and refrigerate. Re-flour the tea glass, and press half-way through each circle to make a crescent moon shape (and put remaining dough in frig). Gently lift the moons on a lightly greased cookie sheet and bake at 375 F for 8-10 minutes (if you have a RUM oven, turn cookies half way through baking so they don’t burn). allow to remain on cookie sheet 1 minute before removing to wire racks to cool.
Glaze with icing made of powdered sugar, coloring and enough milk to make a thin paste. Or use a lightly beaten egg white instead of milk. When done, place them in an airtight container.
