Soon is Valentiens day and i tought, i will share my all time favorite recepie for Sugar Cookies with you :
So here it is 🙂
This is what need:
For the cookies:
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 tsp almond extract
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp salt
2 1/2 cups flour
In a large mixing bowl, beat butter until soft and creamy. Slowly add powdered sugar and beat until well combined. Add in egg, almond extract, vanilla, salt and flour and continue to mix until smooth. Chill dough until firm, at least 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 375F.
Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
Roll out dough on a well floured surface until it is 1/4 inch thick.
Cut out cookies with floured cookie cutters and carefully transfer them to the prepared cookie sheets. Bake cookies for 7-9 minutes. Cookies should NOT brown. Let cool completely before frosting.
For the icing:
2 Tbs meringue powder (found at any craft/baking store)
4 cups powdered sugar
6 Tbs water and one drop Almound flavor (extract)
Place all ingredients in the bowl of a stand mixer. Using the paddle attachment, beat frosting on low until matte and smooth, about 7-8 minutes.
Remove icing and divide into separate, covered container.
The number of containers will be based on how many colors you are using. I used two containers, one for pink and one for red. Keep the icing covered at all times when you are not working with it, as it dries out quickly.
Then you are ready to decorate your Cookies. You can also use Sprinkels as well.
Enjoy your cookies and happy Valentiens day 🙂
As many of you know, i’m a very creative person. I love decoreating my home and make it special and beauiful for my little family. Lately i’m a lot into DIY, specially when it comes to Masen’s room… a while ago i transformed his crib into a toddler bed and since then i’m always doing something for his room to make it more prettier and more toddler like.
Today i’m making a teepee decoration ! grab your tools and lets start 🙂
This is what you need: yarn (as many color as you like), scissors, beads and feaders.
First we are going to make the pom poms .. there are a lot of options how to make it, but this is my version. I think it’s the easiest and fastest way. I just wrap it around my fingers and then tie it in the middle and cut it.
taaaaddaaa and here you have a cute little pom pom 🙂
Next step is to stringing the beads and feders on the yarn. You can make it however you like, just be creative!
Now you can mix it up with the pom poms and hang it on your teepee or wherever you want. I hang some on my pictures too…
taddaaaa done! Masen loves his teepee. I think every little kid should have one 🙂
I hope i inspired you guys, as i was inspired by the beautiful Mama Melanie Maroon. You should definitely check out her blog myloveandbeyond 🙂
