Notes about this recipe

  • Frogcake on December 26, 2016

    Like others, this is my go-to sugar cookie recipe. I found the dough to be perfect to manage for cookie cutters. Note to self: December 2016 made sugar cookie "notes" with black royal icing for N's violin coach. Yield five dozen quarter inch cookies. We happily consumed all of the rejects (not many).

    My go-to sugar cookie recipe that never fails me. The dough is very easy to work with, the cookies retain their shape during baking and the flavour is outstanding. I don't make the icing but use vanilla paste to add a little interest to them instead. I also roll the dough to 1/8" thickness and bake 8-9 minutes for a crisp cookie. Yield with this thickness, depending on the cookie cutters I use, is 6-8 dozen.

    I took the opportunity to make some snow cloud cookies. This weekend seemed like the perfect time.
