Pre-heat oven to 350°. Soften butter in stand mixer, then add dry mix and egg, mixing until dough comes together. Roll out dough between 2 pieces of parchment or plastic wrap. Cut out cookies using cookie cutters or free form with a knife.
Remove excess dough around cookies, place on parchment paper on a cookie sheet, and bake for 8 to 12 minutes until edges just start to brown. If dough becomes warm or sticky, wrap in plastic and refrigerate for 30 minutes to an hour.
OPTIONAL: Sprinkle with large sugar crystals or lightly press pine nuts into top of cookies before baking.
