Recipe: Sugar Cookie and Icing Glaze

Valentine’s Day is a day when we celebrate the love we have in our life whether it’s a significant other, relative, or friend. Show your sweethearts how much you care with a yummy treat.

 

Wrap your cookies up in something just as sweet!

 

Sugar Cookie Recipe

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

 

Cream the butter and sugar. Add the eggs and vanilla, and mix well. Combine the dry ingredients in a separate bowl; gradually add to the creamed mixture. Divide the dough in half and wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for two hours. Roll the dough out to about ¼-inch thickness and cut with cookie cutters. Leave one inch of space between cookies. Bake for 10-12 minutes at 350 degrees.

Cool for one hour before frosting.

 

Have fun when decorating–let your artistic side show!

 

Icing Glaze Recipe

  • 4 cups of powdered sugar
  • 4-6 tablespoons of milk
  • Stir until smooth (the icing should not be too runny)
  • Add more powdered sugar if necessary to thicken the glaze
  • Tint with food coloring
  • Use a separate bowl for each color needed

 

Frost the cookie with the icing. Smooth the top with a spatula dipped in water. Use the edge of the spatula to scrape off any icing that has run over the edge of the cookie. The icing glaze hardens in a couple of hours.
