  • 1 cup butter softened
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 Tbs Martinelli’s Apple Juice Cider or Sparkling Cider
  • A pinch of salt
  • 2 1/2 cups flour


  • 1 cup Powdered Sugar
  • 2 Tbs Martinelli’s Apple Juice or Cider or Sparkling Cider


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • In a mixer, combine your butter and powdered sugar and Martinelli’s Cider.
  • Add in the salt and mix again.
  • Then sift in the flour, and mix for a couple minutes. It will look like sand. Keep mixing and it will start to be more cohesive.
  • Using your hands, kind of squash it together to form a ball.
  • Roll it out on a smooth surface using a rolling pin until it is about 3/4 centimeters thickness.
  • Use a round cookie cutter or biscuit cutter to form cookies.
  • Transfer to a Silicone Baking Mat lined baking sheet. I used a pancake turner to transfer cookies from counter to pan without them falling apart or getting messed up.
  • Bake on an ungreased baking sheet for 6 minutes (do not brown).
  • Let cool on pan 1 minute.
  • Move to a cooling rack.
  • Mix together glaze by whisking all ingredients together in a medium sized bowl.
  • Glaze cookies by spooning glaze over the top, then let cool until glaze firms up.
  • Sprinkle with cinnamon if desired.
  • This makes 18 cookies.
