In lieu of a Christmas card this year, we created this musical greeting with friends! Merry Christmas everyone!
And, to share a bit of our family’s tradition with you, every year we make Christmas sugar cookies. I am quite possibly the worst cookie maker in history, but I’ve finally found a recipe that turns out right EVERY time!
Rolled Sugar Cookies (From Make Bake Celebrate)
3 cups flour (gently leveled NOT packed firm)
1 tsp. baking powder
1 cup unsalted butter
1 cup sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp. vanilla extract
-In a separate bowl whisk together flour and baking powder.
-Beat together unsalted butter and sugar. Once mixed well, add in egg. Mix again, then add in vanilla. I like to use my Kitchen aid and dough hook.
-Slowly add in flour mixture about a cup at a time. Mix until dough forms and begins to clump together.
-Gather up dough and knead it with hands until it’s nice and smooth. Roll it into a ball, wrap with plastic wrap, and place in fridge to chill. I like to let min chill about 20-40 minutes. You will want it to be kind of firm but not hard. If it’s too hard…just leave it out on the counter for just a little bit until it softens up. Then you can work it a little bit to soften it back up.
-Bake at 350, time will depend on cookies size and thickness. Normally between 7-11 minutes.
