For Caden's party I wanted to make cookies I had grand ideas of making sugar cookies and then decorating them with royal icing with the different head bands etc. WELL the party date came upon me and I ditched that idea and went for green cookies ... lol. I found this sandwich cutter on Amazon that worked perfect for cookies.
What you Need:
Sugar Cookie Recipe (my fav is below)
Color the sugar cookie recipe to the right shade of green. I like thick cookies which when using a cutter that has lot's of design helps get them out of the cutter! I did have a little problem with the sides of the mask coming out but I just reattached them after I shook them out of the cutter :).
|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 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). 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.|
|3.||Bake 6 to 8 minutes in preheated oven. Cool completely.|
