I am truly fascinated with sugar cookies decorated with Royal Icing because it doesn't only look good but it tastes good.
That is why I thought of making a ladybug cookie for my daughter's party. It is a big challenge for me since this will be my first time to decorate a cookie and also my first time to use Royal Icing.
Well, I have to perfect my sugar cookie first before anything else.So, here is the delish SUGAR COOKIE RECIPE from my favorite baking site www.joyofbaking.com
3 cups (390 grams) all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup (227 grams) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup (200 grams) granulated white sugar
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
** I omitted the baking soda and vanilla extract**
I tried Cookie Pop too. Rania ate it all
My stack of cookies.
I made roughly 50 pieces from the recipe
I am satisfied with the outcome of my cookies. The thickness is just right and no spreading (common complain and problem with sugar cookies) The trick is to chill the dough after cutting.
