Sugar Cookies

Thursday, April 1, 2021

Happy long weekend and Easter. In my house any and all holidays are used as an excuse to bake more than necessary. I decided to try my hand at sugar cookies. As you can see decorating is work in process but the cookies themselves, SO GOOD.

This sugar cookie base is something I got from my mom, and prob not traditional but it does not require to be refrigerated before baking and its super soft.
What you need:
1/4 lb margarine piece
5 tsp oil
5 tsp sugar 
1/2 tsp baking powder 
1 1/2 cups flour 
1 egg

How to make it:
In a mixer ready bowl combined all ingredients in a bowl and mix with a mixer.
Roll out to about 1 cm thick dough, cut out in desired shapes and bake at 350 for about 8-9 minutes.
Decorate with choice of icing. I made this recipe for icing.
