The Greatest Sugar Cookie: Cookie 3


Mr. Cookie Baker found here.
Originally I blogged about it here.
This is a great children's book, and the recipe for sugar cookies at the end is fantastic.

Mr. Baker's Cookie Recipe
Ingredients:

2 1/2 cups flour (divided)
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter
3/4 sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
3 TBSP milk

Directions:
Mix together 2 cups of flour, baking powder and salt. Cream together the butter and sugar. Beat in the egg, vanilla and milk. Add the dry mixture to the wet mixture. Gradually add enough of the remaining flour to make the dough stiff enough to roll into a ball. Chill at least one hour. Preheat oven to 375. Roll dough out on floured surface to about 1/8 inch thick. Cut with cookie cutters and place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes or until nicely browned.

Makes about 4 dozen.




Thoughts on these cookies:

I love these. The dough wasn't especially yummy, but we're here to eat cookies, not dough. Right? They were soft, but had enough crispness that they didn't fall apart.
I'm actually getting decent at rolling out cookie dough and cutting shapes so they turned out nicely. I did this batch in star shapes, flowers (that I called fireworks) and an outline of the United States and we made them into mini patriotic fruit pizzas. I didn't especially like this frosting recipe, so I'm not including it. Just use your favorite frosting recipe, this search is for the yummiest COOKIE.

Jed says he liked these way better than cookie 1 but not as much as cookie 2. Princess Sparkley says she liked these better than number 2 because number 2 was a little crumbly in her opinion. Buddy and Little Guy just enjoyed gobbling them up. I didn't taste a noticeable difference between cookies 2 and 3. I would make these again and again. And then I would weigh a billion pounds.
