We decided to make fun iced cookies for hanukkah this year, I used my trusty cookie recipe and they turned out just right. The kids love these, and I love the all cookie cutters, you can eat a couple guilt free :)
I found the recipe on Allrecipes:
|1.||In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Stir in the flour, baking powder, and salt. Cover, and chill dough for at least one hour (or overnight).|
|2.||Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Roll out dough on floured surface 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick. Cut into shapes with any cookie cutter. Place cookies 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 8-9 minutes (depending on how thick you roll out your cookies. |
SUGAR COOKIE ICING:
This is the recipe I used for the icing. I love the almond flavor it has, it is a unexpected touch.
