For the life of me, I can’t remember the recipe off the top of my head, and I’ll probably not remember to go look it up when I get the chance. But it was something like 2 sticks + 3 T of butter in the recipe.
I browned a few of the tops, but I had fun with the sugar cookie dough; cutting out shapes and baking them. And then icing them! Woo hoo! I used the sprinkles Papa Amherst gave me for Christmas on the simple icing (not that great, but worked in a pinch: powdered sugar with a bit of water/milk).
Normally I’m kind of ‘meh’ with sugar cookies because they don’t have a lot of flavor to them, but I used some of Penzey’s double strength vanilla extract and their fresh nutmeg, and woah baby, they really upped the flavor and tasty-factor of these cookies. This vanilla has turned me into a vanilla-enjoyer.
And I made some jam filled cookies because how could you not like them? (No, really. How?) And then I ran out of jam, so I used this blueberry syrup we had in the fridge. It wasn’t thick enough, but it reduced a bit (and spilled, thankgoodnessforparchmentpaper) and made a cookie that wasn’t too sweet.
Mwah, guys! I hope your weekend was lovely, or at least involved some form of cookie.
