  • 2 sticks unsalted butter (cold or softened)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon blue gel food dye
  • 1 Nellie’s Free Range Egg
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest (optional)
  • White cookie icing, homemade or store-bought


  • Preheat oven to 350F. In a stand mixer, beat butter and sugar until creamy. Have your child add vanilla extract and blue food dye, and help them crack an egg into the bowl. (Tip: have your child crack the egg into a separate bowl and then let them pour it into the mixture; this makes retrieving bits of egg shell much easier!) Continue to mix until smooth and add lemon zest if using.
  • In a separate bowl, sift flour, baking powder and salt. Slowly add dry ingredients into mixer on low speed. Feel free to have your child help with this step!
  • Start with about a fourth of your dough. Roll it out onto a cutting board dusted with flour until dough is about 1/4 inch thick. With your child's help, cut out the dough with your Star of David or other fun holiday cookie cutters. Repeat with remaining dough.
  • Place cookies on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake in the oven for 6-8 minutes. Let cool on a cooling rack. When cookies are completely cool, decorate with cookie icing and enjoy!
