Fun Baking With Katie



Hi dear friends.  I love it when Katie spends the weekend at my house.  She is so sweet and adorable.   We baked sugar cookies and she decorated them with edible markers and food coloring. She was excited as can be and I couldn't wait to see the outcome of her imagination.    This is a great activity to do with kids at home and for birthday parties.  Lately, I've been making fancyflours cookie recipe; it's really a no fail one.

                                                         Let's eat & peace out

Sugar Cookie Recipe                 Yield: 8 dozen 3" cookies.  It really varies due to shape and thickness.


Ingredients:

6 cups all purpose flour

3 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

2 cups unsalted butter

2 cups granulated sugar

2 large eggs

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Instructions:

In large bowl, mix flour, baking powder salt, and sugar.  Put aside.

Cream sugar and butter until fluffy, about 5 minutes.  Add eggs and vanilla; mix until well incorporated.  Add dry ingredients (about 2 cups at a time) to butter mixture.  Mix well.

Put a big handful of freshly made dough between two sheets of parchment paper and roll to desired thickness.    Put rolled dough, including the parchment paper, on a cookie sheet and refrigerate for 10 minutes.  Repeat with the rest of the dough.  Your dough will be ready to cut and bake.  Repeat with scraps after cutting cookies.  Rolled out dough may frozen  and will bake wonderfully.

Bake at 350 degrees for 10 - 12 minutes.  Let cool completely before decorating.
These cookies taste delicious and remain well in a sealed plastic container.

I use Americolors edible markers and Wilton gel color

Happy Decorating!
