Cutout Sugar Cookies | Christmas Cookies

Pappu's holidays have officially started. Last thursday was the last day of school and now its Christmas break. Its fun on one hand cos we can sleep in late, have fun playing but the thing is he gets bored easily. His attention span is so little and engaging him needs stamina. I have some stuff planned for us like baking cookies (!!!duh), puzzle time, sensory play and threading pasta. So lets see how everything is going to work out. Coming to these cookies, these make perfect kids activity and holiday gift cookies. Kids can help in making the dough, cutting out the shapes and then decorating it as they want to. Since I made these for a volunteer event at pappu's school, I didn't decorate them as it was planned for kids' activity. But if you are planning to decorate them then use royal icing.

~*What U Need*~
Prep time: 30 mins; Cook time: 10 mins; Serves - 2 dozen
All purpose flour - 1 1/2 cups
Baking powder - 1/4 tsp
Salt - 1/8 tsp
Unsalted butter - 6 tbsp
Sugar - 1/2 cup
Eggs - 1
Pure vanilla extract - 1/2 tsp

How I Made it:
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside. In a large bowl or the bowl of your standing mixer, cream together the butter and sugar. Add the egg and vanilla and continue to whisk till fully combined for about 1 minute.

In a bowl, whisk the flour, salt and baking powder and mix it into the egg mixture until its all combined. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate the dough for about an hour. Take the dough out of the fridge and allow to sit at room temperature for 10 minutes.

Roll out on a floured surface to about 1/4 inch thick, cut out any design with your your cookie cutter and place them on your lined baking sheet. Bake for about 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly golden around the edges and allow them to cool completely.

Decorate as desired with royal icing.

So thats it Folks...
With Love,
