Ok, we love love sugar cookies! We love decorating them and seeing the expression on peoples faces when they see hand decorated cookies. We just wanted to show a few pictures and steps for anyone that might want to make their own.
To start, here is one of our favorite Sugar Cookie recipes:
- High Heels & Purse Cookie Cutter Set (click here)
- 6 cups flour
- 3 tsp. baking powder
- 2 cups butter
- 2 cups sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1 tsp. salt
Ok, now let's get started. Mix cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla. Mix well. Mix dry ingredients and add a little at a time to butter mixture. Mix until flour is completely incorporated and the dough comes together.
Chill for 1 to 2 hours. Roll to desired thickness and cut into desired shapes. Bake on non-greased baking sheet at 350 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes or until just beginning to turn brown around the edges. This recipe can make up to 5-dozen 3” cookies.
Here is great Royal Icing Recipe:
- 6 oz (3/4 cup) of warm water
- 5 Tablespoons meringue powder
- 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
- 2 1/4 lbs.powdered icing sugar
In mixer bowl, pour in the warm water and the meringue powder. Mix it with a whisk by hand until it is frothy and thickened…about 30 seconds. Add the cream of tartar and mix for 30 seconds more. Pour in all the icing sugar at once and place the bowl on the mixer. Using the paddle attachment on the LOWEST speed, mix slowly for a full 10 minutes. Icing will get thick and creamy. Cover the bowl with a dampened tea-towel to prevent crusting and drying. Tint with food coloring's or thin the icing with small amounts of warm water to reach the desired consistency.
Step 1: Bake cookies with recipe above. Let Cool.
