(remember i said i was a freak!).....so from that day on, i have made a ton of SC's trying to find the perfect one....so here my BLENDS...(thanks, C!)....is the best RECIPE ever....
T's Sugar Cookies
3 cups powder sugar
2 cups Butter (softened)
2 tsp vanilla
5 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp baking soda (omit if you do not want your cookies to spread!)
2 tsps cream of tartar
Preheat oven to 350'. In large bowl blend powder sugar, butter, vanilla and eggs. Stir in dry ingredients. You can cover and refridgerate for about an hour to firm up. (i have no patience, so i typically roll out ASAP!) you may need more flour on hands, counter, if you choose to be an impatient beotch as myself!....i cut them pretty thick. place on cookie sheet and bake for 7-9 mins. allow to cool before decorating.
refer to this ADORABLE site on icing tutorials: Our Best Bites!
so there ya have it....a delectable recipe that i am quite sure, you will LOVE if you are a sugar cookie addict as myself!!! in addition to the recipe, MY FIRST BLOG POST!!! brown chicken brown cow....(sung to the tune of a naughty porn song!!)
peace out, bloggies! xoxo
