Iced Sugar Cookies






 Sugar cookies 
are easy to make and are
a popular Christmas cookie. 

I decorated them with icing
 and sugar sprinkles to 
gives them an Icy look.





Ingredients:

2 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt 

1/2 cup butter, at room temp.
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla or almond extract.

Directions

In a bowl, whisk together the flour, 
baking powder and salt. Set aside.

In another bowl, with an electric beater,
beat the butter and sugar together until
smooth.
Add in the egg and vanilla.

Form the dough into 2 disks and
place in the fridge for about 1 hr.

Preheat oven to 350 deg. F

Remove from fridge, set sit until it can be rolled.
About 5-10 minutes.
Dough may be frozen also and used at a 
later date.

Roll out approx.  1/8 to 1/4 inch thick. 

Cut out cookies and place on parchment lined
cookies sheets. 



Bake 8-10 minutes our until the 
edges are slightly brown.


Cool completely on a cooling rack,  
before removing from the cookie sheet.





For the frosting/icing, I used 1 cup
 icing sugar/powdered sugar, 
(sifted to eliminate any lumps)
mix with 2 tbsp. milk
 and 1 tsp vanilla.

I used a little cherry juice mixed
with frosting, for the pink colour.

Frost the cookie and add some 
white sugar sprinkles to give it an
icy effect.





Enjoy!
