Christmas Sugar Cookies

Print this pagePrint this page

As I lately have some time, I was looking on the internet a few days ago. On the lookout for fresh, fascinating thoughts, inspiring meals that We have never used before, to surprise my loved ones with. Hunting for a while yet could not come across lots of interesting things. Just before I thought to give up on it, I found this tempting and simple dessert simply by luck at ambitiouskitchen. The dessert seemed so delicious on its photos, that required fast action.
It was not difficult to imagine just how it is created, how it tastes and just how much my hubby is going to like it. Actually, it is rather easy to please the guy when it comes to cakes. Yes, I'm a lucky one. Or possibly he is.Anyhow, I went to the page and used the comprehensive instuctions that have been combined with impressive photographs of the operation. It really makes life quite easy. I could imagine that it is a slight hassle to shoot photos down the middle of baking in the kitchen as you may most often have sticky hands and so i genuinely appreciate the effort and time she devote to make this post and recipe easily followed.
With that in mind I'm inspired presenting my own formulas similarly. Appreciate your the idea.
I was fine tuning the original mixture create it for the taste of my loved ones. I have to tell you it was a terrific outcome. They loved the flavour, the thickness and enjoyed getting a delicacy like this in the midst of a hectic workweek. They quite simply asked for even more, a lot more. Hence the next occasion I am not going to commit the same mistake. I am gonna multiply the quantity .

no bake coconut snowballsEach Dec I wonder if I'd be more happy in my own kitchen or from it.
Today, for example, might have been an excellent day to relax and watch the snow fall having a mug of hot chocolate and an excellent book. Leisurely cover a few gifts. No dirty dishes. Plenty of counter-top space. Sweet peace.
Instead, I discover myself bending over-the-counter, scattering sprinkles, sweeping the ground twice, repeatedly informing pudgy little fingers to stay out of the icing, and questioning if I have sufficient measuring cups and spatulas to pull off another batch of treats without washing any dishes first.
Yes, I'm much happier in my kitchen.
Christmas wouldn't end up being Christmas without sugar cookies. Here is this year's lineup -

Which one is your favorite? I'd want to hear!
Vanilla-Almond Sugar Cookies
Combine the flour, baking powder, and sodium in a little mixing bowl. Set aside.
Cream the sugar and butter. Add the egg and extracts, and mix. Gradually add the flour combination and beat just until combined, scraping down the bowl, especially the bottom. The dough will be crumbly, therefore knead it together a bit with your hands while you scoop it out of the dish.
Form into a disc, and wrap in plastic cover. Let it sit down within the fridge for about 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 350 levels. Roll 1/4 inch thick on a floured surface. Cut into styles. Place on parchment-lined cooking sheet. Freeze the cut-out shapes on the cooking sheet for 5-10 moments before baking. This helps avoid the cookies from spreading too much as they bake.
(Form any remaining dough right into a disc, and rewrap with plastic material wrap. Allow it sit within the fridge while the first batch bakes, after that move it out again when you're ready to do another batch.)
Bake for 9-10 a few minutes, or until the tops look mostly dry, but sides aren't browned yet. Allow them sit for 2-3 mins in the sheet, then transfer to some cooling rack.

Oh wow, I cannot let you know how jealous We am of your decorating skills at this time
Those cookies are gorgeous! I especially love the snowflake types, those are really elegant.
Beautiful decorating! I just made some cookies with this recipe from my mother, minus the Almond remove. I will need to give a try. My husband really like almond flavored items. Thanks for the idea. Also, would you home-make your icing? Or purchase it. Post the coconut bites Recipe for that.
Peggy - Sure! I take advantage of this one: -Icing
For cookie decorating, I usually add some obvious vanilla to give it taste. Or any various other flavoring would work too. Just make certain it's apparent and water-based.

Yes, environment will definitely impact your dough. Could it be dry in your part of Texas? If you live in a dry weather, then your flour will be drier and want more water to soak up. (In a humid weather the flour will absorb more moisture through the air and won't need as much liquid within the dough.) That is one reason why it's difficult for the same formula to work flawlessly in every kitchen. It could take some experimenting to figure out what works greatest in your kitchen. Adding a little extra dairy (or just a little much less flour) is a great way to adjust for dried out weather.
