Add a teaspoon of good quality cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg, and 1/4 teaspoon ginger. Add a tablespoon of zest and a teaspoon of orange flavor, lemon flavor, or lime flavor to your cookies to give your sugar cookies a zesty flavor.
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). In a small bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, and baking powder.
- In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in egg and vanilla.
- Bake 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden.
The ideal thickness to roll out your sugar cookie dough is about 1/4″–that way, they’ll be tough enough to be handled and decorated, but thin enough to stay a little crunchy.
- In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Stir in the flour, baking powder, and salt.
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Roll out dough on floured surface 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick.
- Bake 6 to 8 minutes in preheated oven. Cool completely.
Cream of tartar helps stabilize whipped egg whites, prevents sugar from crystallizing and acts as a leavening agent for baked goods.
Here’s what you need:
- cookie cutters – I love this set.
- couplers – only needed if you‘re using the same icing color, but need to switch tips.
- piping bags – I prefer the 16 inch size for decorating.
- gel food coloring – get the whole set.
- round piping tips.
Do I put sprinkles on before baking?
If you want to add sprinkles to cookies, cupcakes, breads, or cakes before baking, that is totally and completely ok. Add sprinkles to the tops of these baked goods right before they go into the oven. Adding sprinkles to “wet” batter is the only way to get them to stick without an additional “glue” like frosting.
