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 350° 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.
