Roll-Out Cookie Dough Recipe


  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1-1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons Wilton® Imitation Clear Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon Wilton® Imitation Clear Almond Extract
  • 2-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt


1. Preheat oven to 350º F. In large bowl, beat butter and sugar with electric mixer until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and extracts. Mix flour, baking powder and salt; add to butter mixture 1 cup at a time, mixing after each addition. Do not chill dough. Divide dough into 2 balls.
2. On floured surface, roll each ball into a circle approximately 12" diameter x 1/8" thick. Dip cookie cutter in flour before each use. Bake cookies on ungreased cookie sheet 8 to 10 minutes or until cookies are lightly browned.
Makes about 3 dozen 3" cookies.

Color Flow Icing Recipe


  • 1/4 cup + 1 teaspoon water
  • 1 pound (4 cups) confectionerʼs sugar, sifted
  • 2 tablespoons Wilton® Color Flow Mix


1. With electric mixer, using grease-free utensils, blend all ingredients on low speed for 5 minutes. If using hand mixer, use high speed. Color Flow Icing “crusts" quickly, so keep bowl covered with a damp cloth while using. Stir in desired icing color.
Makes about 2 cups.
Thinned Color Flow: To fill in an outlined area, the recipe must be thinned with 1/2 teaspoon of water per 1/4 cup of icing (just a few drops at a time as you near proper consistency). Use grease-free spoon or spatula to stir slowly. Color Flow icing is ready for filling in outlines when a small amount dropped into the mixture takes a count of ten to disappear.
