Christmas Sugar Cookies

As I recently have a little time, I was searching on the internet the other day. Trying to find fresh, stirring thoughts, inspirational dishes that I have never tasted before, to astonish my loved ones with. Searching for a long time but could not find any interesting stuff. Right before I thought to give up on it, I came upon this tempting and easy dessert by chance. The dessert seemed so delicious on its snapshot, that required immediate action.
It absolutely was simple enough to imagine how it is created, how it tastes and just how much my husband will probably want it. Mind you, it is extremely easy to keep happy the man in terms of treats. Anyway, I got into the site: Ambitiouskitchen and simply used the step-by-step instuctions that have been accompanied by impressive shots of the operation. It just makes life less difficult. I can imagine that it is a slight effort to take photos down the middle of cooking in the kitchen as you may will often have gross hands so I highly appreciate the commitment she devote to make this post and Healthy donouts recipe easily followed.
That being said I'm empowered presenting my own dishes in the same way. Many thanks for the concept.
I was fine tuning the original recipe to make it for the taste of my family. Need to say that it was an awesome success. They prized the flavour, the consistency and enjoyed having a delicacy like this during a stressful workweek. They quite simply requested lots more, more and more. Thus next time I'm not going to make the same mistake. I'm likely to multiply the amount to keep them pleased.

Each Dec I wonder if I'd be more happy in my own kitchen or from it.
Today, for example, may have been an excellent day to relax and watch the snow fall using a mug of hot chocolate and a good book. Leisurely cover a few presents. No dirty dishes. Plenty of counter space. Sweet peace.
Instead, I find myself bending over-the-counter, scattering sprinkles, sweeping the floor twice, repeatedly telling pudgy little fingertips to stay from the icing, and wondering if I have enough measuring mugs and spatulas to pull off another batch of treats without cleaning any dishes initial.
Yes, I'm notably happier in my kitchen.
Christmas wouldn't end up being Christmas without glucose cookies. Here is this year's lineup -

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

Oh wow, I can't let you know how jealous We am of the decorating skills right now
Those cookies are beautiful! I especially like the snowflake types, those are actually elegant.
Beautiful decorating! I simply made some cookies with this recipe from my mother, minus the Almond draw out. I will need to give a try. My husband enjoy almond flavored stuff. Thanks for the idea. Also, would you home-make your icing? Or purchase it. Post the recipe for that.
Peggy - Sure! I take advantage of that one: -Icing
For cookie decorating, I usually add some obvious vanilla to provide it flavor. Or any other flavoring would work too. Just make sure it's obvious and water-based.

Yes, environment will definitely influence your dough. Could it be dry in your section of Texas? In the event that you reside in a dry environment, then your flour is going to be drier and want more water to absorb. (Within a humid environment the flour will absorb more moisture from the air and won't need as much liquid in the dough.) This is one reason why it's difficult for the same formula to work flawlessly in every kitchen. It might take some experimenting to determine what works best in your kitchen. Adding a little extra dairy (or a little much less flour) is a great way to adjust for dried out environment.
