Cinnamon Christmas Cookies

Preparation time: 1 hrs Chilling time: 2 hrs Baking time: 6 min Cooling time: 15 min Standing time: 6 hrs

Yield: 3 dozen (2-inch) cookies

Cookie Ingredients:
1 cup LAND O LAKES® Butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 egg
2 tablespoons orange juice
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder

Combine 1 cup butter, sugar and egg in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, until creamy. Add orange juice and 1 tablespoon vanilla. Continue beating, scraping bowl often, until well mixed. Reduce speed to low. Add flour, baking powder and cinnamon; beat, scraping bowl often, until well mixed.

Divide dough in thirds. Shape each third into a ball. Wrap in plastic food wrap; flatten to 1/2 inch. Refrigerate until firm (2 to 3 hours).

Heat oven to 400°F. Roll out dough on lightly floured surface, one-third at a time (keeping remaining dough refrigerated), to 1/8 to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut with 2-inch cookie cutters. Place 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 6 to 10 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool completely.
