Hey pixels!! Following our Christmas subject, it’s time to make some cookies!! Sweet, pink cookies. You can leave five or six with a glass of milk for Santa. What do you think, my happy pixels?
Leaving some cookies for Santa is something lots of people do with their children. Do you do it, my happy pixels?? If so, here I have more cookie suggestions: Chocolate chip cookies or Mexican wedding cookies.
- 3/4 cups unsalted butter, softened
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 eggs
- 3/4 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 1/2 cups flour, plus more for rolling
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 1-2 tablespoons milk
- 1/2 tablespoon honey
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- Food coloring
In the bowl, cream together butter and sugar. Mix in eggs and extract until well-combined.
In a separate bowl, whisk together remainder of cookie ingredients. Add dry ingredients to wet in batches until combined.
Divide dough into quarters, form into discs, and wrap in plastic wrap and chill for at least 2 hours.
Preheat oven to 200°.
Removed one disc from fridge and roll out on floured surface until dough is thick enough (see pictures).
Cut with cookie cutter or a small glass and baked on an ungreased cookie sheet for 6-8′, watching closely. Cookies are done when bottoms are just barely golden brown. Let cool completely on wire racks before frosting. Make sure cookie sheets are cool to touch before place more cookie dough on them.
For frosting, combine sugar, two tablespoons milk, and honey, adding more milk until frosting reaches desired consistency. Dip onto cookies. Will dry to a soft frosting with a glossy coating. If you’d like to use sprinkles, apply them before the frosting dries.
