      Title: 1988 2nd place pat egan's christmas tree cookies
 Categories: Cookies, Holiday
      Yield: 72 Servings
 
  2 1/2 c  Flour
      1 c  Sugar
      1 c  Butter or margarine,
           Softened
  1 1/2 ts Baking powder
    1/4 ts Salt
    1/2 ts Almond extract
      1    Egg
    1/4 c  Green sugar crystals, about
    1/4 c  Confetti or nonpareil candy
           Decorations, optional
 
   Preparation time: 20 minutes Chilling time: 4 hours Baking time: 10
  minutes
  
    1. Put flour, sugar, butter, baking powder, salt, almond extract
  and egg into large bowl of an electric mixer. Mix together, using low
  speed. Dough will be crumbly. Then knead dough with hands until
  mixture holds together.
  
    2. Remove 1/3 cup of the dough; wrap and refrigerate. Divide
  remaining dough in thirds. Using hands, roll each into a 6-inch log.
  
    3. Put sugar crystals on a sheet of wax paper. Roll each log in the
  sugar crystals to coat well; use the wax paper as a guide to press in
  crystals. Shape each log into a triangle, pressing gently on wax
  paper to give three sharp corners. Make sure to make 2 sides longer
  than the third side. Wrap each log well and refrigerate at least 4
  hours or until dough is firm enough to slice. To this point, cookies
  can be made up to a week in advance.
  
    4. Heat oven to 350 degrees. To bake, slice logs crosswise into
  1/4-inch slices. Put slices about 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie
  sheets. For each cookie, shape about 1/2 teaspoon of the reserved 1/3
  cup dough into a tree trunk. Attach to bottom underside of each tree.
  Sprinkle each cookie lightly with candy decorations, if desired. Bake
  until lightly browned, about 10 minutes. Carefully remove to wire
  racks. Cool completely.
  
    Note: The logs can be divided and shaped into 3 sizes and sliced to
  form a 3-tiered tree.   These second-place winning cookies are easily
  shaped into trees that are edged with glittery green sugar.
