Frosted Sugar Cookies
Get out your sprinkles and all your measuring cups, spoons, mixing bowls and most important your kids to help you make and decorate some sugar cookies. This is a fun and frugal activity to do with your kids. My kids were so excited to help, we had a lot of fun and made a wonderful memory. If you want to use cookie cutters bring them out and a rolling pin :)
I found the cookie recipe from allrecipes.com and it was submitted by Stephanie
2 3/4 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a small bowl, stir together flour, baking soda and baking powder. Set aside.
2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in egg and vanilla. Gradually blend in the dry ingredients. Roll rounded teaspoonfuls of dough into balls, and place onto ungreased cookie sheets. (we used a rolling pin and cookie cutters for ours)
3. Bake 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden. Let stand on cookie sheet 2 minutes before removing to cool on wire rack.
I found the vanilla frosting recipe on Cooks.com
3 Cups powdered sugar
1/2 Cup butter, softened
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
about 2 tablespoons milk
Mix powdered sugar and butter. Stir in vanilla and milk. Beat until smooth and of spreading consistency. This will frost a 13x9 inch cake or fills and frosts two 8 or 9 inch cake layers or frosts 24 cupcakes. (or in my case a batch of sugar cookies)
We had fun making these cookies and though some where misshapen and not perfect they tasted delicious and looked festive.
