Blog 52-Best Pink Cutout Cookies Ever….

 Hello These Are The Best Cutout Cookies Ever…………

-1-cup butter Softened

-¾ cup of sugar

-1 egg

-1-teaspoon of clear vanilla extract

-2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1-teaspoon baking powder

-¼ teaspoon salt

In mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and sugar. Add egg, Vanilla; mix well. Combine flour baking powder and salt; add to cream mixture and mix well. I always add just a touch of milk at end. You can judge it by how dry the dough feels. Less is always better. You do not have to refrigerate but I always have better success when I put the dough in the refrigerator for about 20 minutes. I have had times when I did not have the time to refrigerate.

 

 

They will turn out fine. The next step is most important. Put a little flour on each side of dough and a little on your rolling pin, again less is better. Remember: you can always add but you cannot take away! Get two pieces of

Parchment paper put dough in between, roll it out. Use cookie cutter and put on cookie sheet. Set oven to 325 degrees, bake no more than 8 minutes. Let cookies cool completely, then frost. Below are two of my favorite frostings.

 

 

Buttercream Frosting

-Cream butter in bowl of mixer, add in 1 cups of confectioners’

sugar, milk and vanilla on medium speed. …

-Add in food coloring to make desired color.

-Spread frosting on cooled cutout cookies with an

offset spatula or butter knife.
