These are the best sugar cookies I have baked so far in terms of airiness, keeping shape and not spreading.I do not bake too many cookies for the simple reason my husband and I would gorge on it from start to finish.
Recipe- from thisYoutube video.It is a well explained one telling all minor details.I have halved the ingredients but followed the recipe to dot.
|look at the bottom of bottles for pretty patterns 🙂 I know the most unexpected place right !!|
Butter - 1 stick( 1/2 cup) at room temperature
Sugar- 1/2 cup
Baking powder - 1/2 tsp
Egg - 1
Vanilla essence- 1/2 tsp
1.Mix sugar and butter beat well until creamy.
Mix egg and vanilla essence and whisk very lightly.
Sift all purpose flour and baking powder together.
2. Combine sugar mixture and egg mixture then add the flour mix until everything is well combined.Mix with hand and make the dough a round ball and wrap it in cling wrap and put it in a ziploc or container and put it in the fridge for 4 hrs- 8 hours minimum.
3.Roll the dough when the said time is over into 1/4 th inch thick disc in between two sheets of wax papers. Use any impression u like then cut the cookies with cookie cutter or bottle mouth/ can
4.On a cookie sheet put wax paper and put the cookies 2 inches apart. Put the cookie sheet with cookies into the freezer for atleast 15- 20 minutes.So it firms up.Do not thaw put it straight into the oven and do not open the oven in the middle of baking are the two important steps to get perfect baked cookies.
5..Preheat oven to 375 F and bake for 8-9 minutes only.After 3-4 minutes remove from wax paper.Let it cool on wire rack then store in airtight container.
