Lucky Stars

"Every year we host a New Year's Eve Party with a theme. Last year was "Starry, Starry Night". Everything (food, dress and decorations!) related to stars. This cookie was a hit with everyone. Try substituting pecans for the walnuts."

Directions

  1. Sift together 1 1/3 cups flour and 1 1/2 teaspoons double-acting baking powder. Set aside. Cream 1/4 cup butter or margarine. Gradually add 1/4 cup sugar, creaming well. Blend in 1 teaspoon vanilla, 1 teaspoon almond extract, 1/8 teaspoon salt and unbeaten egg. Gradually add the flour and baking soda mixture, mixing thoroughly.
  2. To Make Nut Filling: Combine 1 1/4 cups walnuts or pecans, ground or chopped very fine, 1/3 cup sugar and 1/16 teaspoon salt. Add 1 Tablespoon melted butter, 2 Tablespoons water and 1/16 teaspoon maple flavoring. Mix thoroughly.
  3. Roll out dough on a floured surface to 1/8-inch thickness. Cut with star-shaped cookie cutter. Place a teaspoonful of Nut Filling in the center of each star. Bring the 5 points upright; starting at the base, pinch sides together so points stand up, allowing filling to show. Place on ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) 7 to 10 minutes until light golden brown.

This recipe is great!!!!!!!!! I love and my family enjoys it too very much.

THIS IS MY ALLTIME FAVORITE COOKIE. MY SISTER AND I MADE THESE COOKIES FROM A PILSBURY BAKEOFF COOKBOOK IN THE FIFTIES. I'VE BEEN BAKING THEM EVER SINCE.

I found this recipe years ago and it is my husbands favorite holiday cookie. I lost the recipe last year and was thrilled when I did a web search that it came up here! Thank you for a deliciou...

so many flavours to this cookie, vanilla, almond, and maple. They seem to cancel each other out. I chose to make them with a round cookie, filling and a star, just because I was lazy.
