Best Christmas Cookie Cutouts Ever

My good pal Stephanie Archer Smith wants to make sure that her name is clearly mentioned in the post, and in my cafe! Yes, doing that, and now you are published on the web!

Stephanie's Christmas Cutouts
1 cup butter
3/4 cups light brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 t ginger
1 tsp baking soda
Cream butter and sugar (of course). Then add the egg and vanilla and cream together, then mix dry ingredients together, add into the cream mix, a third at a time. Refridgerate for 2 hours. Roll out to 1/4 inch, cutout with shape of your seasonal choice. Bake at 375 for 8 – 9 minute. They hold up well and taste good. 

The chocolate drizzle is 1 part butter, 1 part chocolate (bakers plus chocolate chips), 1/2 part coffee, 1 part confectioners sugar.  Heat in double boiler, or carefully in the microwave.  Stir often, and drizzle when you can see good length to your strands of chocolate.
