Step 1:

Makes approximately 12-15 cookies


  • ½ cup butter, softened
  • ¼ cup powdered sugar
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • red food coloring
  • hatchet cookie cutter


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar.
  4. Add flour and mix until it forms a soft dough. It will be crumbly but keep mixing and it will form into a dough. Form into a ball. Roll dough out to ¼ inch thick on a floured surface.
  5. Use the cookie cutter to cut out shapes and place on prepared baking sheet.
  6. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until cookies are light golden brown. Let cool completely and drizzle food coloring on edge of each cookie and smear onto the edge of the hatchet cookie.
