Cinnamon Stars

Cookie dough;
3 1/2 cups all purpose flour

1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup unsalted butter
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoons vanilla extract

Icing with cinnamon;
1 large egg whites
1 teaspoons milk
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
(Beat the ingredients with a mixer)
Mix the flour, salt and baking powder and put aside.
Beat the butter and sugar until fluffy. Add the eggs, vanilla extract and beat until combined. Add the flour mixture and beat until you have a smooth dough. Refrigerate for about one hour(Don't forget to wrap it)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Roll out the dough to a thickness of 1/4 inch on a floured surface. Cut out desired shapes using a lightly floured cookie cutter. Place the baking sheets with the unbaked cookies in the refrigerator for 15 minutes (It helps cookies keep their shape while baking)
Bake cookies for about 10 min. Remove from oven and let cookies cool on baking sheet. Frost with icing. Also you can decorate with pecan/crushed pecan.
Aria cut them and we frosted them together :)
