  • Beat butter and sugar with a mixer on medium speed until pale and fluffy, about 6 minutes. Beat in egg and vanilla. Reduce speed to low; gradually beat in flour mixture. Divide dough in half. Shape each half into a disk; wrap in plastic. Refrigerate until firm, at least 1 hour or overnight.

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Roll out dough 1 disk at a time to just under a 1/4-inch thickness on a lightly floured surface. Using templates, cut out letters with a paring knife. Reroll scraps; cut more letters (you'll need 14 D's and 7 A's, total). Freeze on 2 parchment-lined baking sheets until firm, 15 minutes.

  • Bake until edges are golden, 15 to 18 minutes, rotating sheets halfway through. Let cookies cool on sheets set on wire racks.

I made something similar to this last year (but in the form of three giant chocolate chip cookies) and it was a hit! This year, since my dad is a huge lover of crumb cake, I'm ordering him a new york style crumb cake through www.crumbcakecreations.com . Their cakes are delicious and living in Florida, dad misses the true NY style bakeries/treats.
