Candy Apple Sugar Cookie Cut Outs (West Virginia)

The state fruit of West Virginia is the Golden Delicious apple. The original tree was found on the Mullins’ family farm in Clay County, West Virginia, and was locally known as Mullin’s Yellow Seedling and Annit apple. Since I am now an official resident of West Virginia, the Golden Delicious Apple was the inspiration behind my recipe: candy apple sugar cookie cut outs.

Instructions
  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour and baking powder. Set aside.
  2. In a separate bowl combine the butter and sugar. Mix with an electric mixer until light and fluffy.
  3. Mix in the egg and vanilla until mixed well.
  4. Slowly add in the flour mixture until your dough is mixed but still crumbles. Turn the cookie mixture out onto a lightly floured surface. Gently knead the dough until it forms a smooth ball.
  5. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  6. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line your baking sheet with parchment paper.
  7. Divide the dough into fourths. Working with one section at a time, roll the dough out on a piece of parchment paper that has been lightly dusted with Bob's Red Mill Flour to ¼ inch thick.
  8. Use your favorite cookie cutters to cut out the shapes you desire. Place the cut outs onto your parchment lined baking sheet, ½ an inch apart.
  9. Bake in a 350-degree oven for 8 to 10 minutes, or until the edges are light golden brown.
  10. Remove to a wire rack for cooling. Once they are cool you can decorate them any way you like.
