Tea Time Just Got More Delicious At My House
Making rolled sugar cookies is labor intensive, truth be told these were pretty easy to make, as I am not icing them (though for my party I am thinking of half dipping them in chocolate). If you can roll out dough, you can make these cookies. The trick is the right consistency of the dough, work in small batches and use parchment paper.
Karen's Sugar Cookies
Pre heat the oven to 350
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup margarine
3 tbsp cream
2 tsp Vanilla
4 cups of flour
1 1/2 tsp of baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
Cream your sugar, butter and egg. Add your cream and vanilla. Beat in your flour, baking powder and the salt. You want the dough to form a ball and not stick to the sides of the bowl. If it does add 1/2 cup more flour. 1/4 of a cup at a time.
Then choose a cookie cutter the shape you would like to use. I chose a round fluted edge cutter that I felt was the right size for tea! Simply cut out your shapes. I would use the best parts of your rolled out dough. I cut about 6 cookies at time, re rolled, adding more dough as I went until all the dough was used. I am really thrilled with how they turned out.
I ordered my rolling pin from Valek Rolling Pin's Etsy Shop with shipping it cost $46.87 US. I feel it was worth every penny. I will be looking to order more in the new year and I know I am going to enjoy using this one year round!
Thank you for joining me for a cup of tea and a cozy mystery. I am off to finish Shenanigans In The Shadows, A cozy short story by Kari Lee Townsend. I look forward to sharing the review with you soon.
