Get started with this Christmas Cookie Cutter Set with a recipe for sugar cookies and royal icing.
Put butter or margarine into your mixing bowl. Pour sugar over butter. With fork, squash butter and sugar together until blended. Crack shells of eggs and pour over mixture in bowl. Add vanilla and pour over mixture. With fork, blend everything in the bowl together. Add all-purpose flour and pour over mixture in bowl. Add baking powder and salt sprinkling over flour. Mix everything together either with the fork or with your hands. Place dough in icebox to chill (at least one hour).
After chilling the dough, roll it out to 1/4" (0.64 cm) thick. Cut with your cookie cutters. Place on your prepared baking sheet, lined with a baking mat or parchment paper. Bake at 400°F (204° C) for about 10-12 minutes.
If you'd like, you can sprinkle colored-sugar onto the cookies before baking, or decorate with frosting after cooled.
TIP: If you want cookies that don’t rise too much and keep the shape of the cookie cutter, you can omit the baking powder.
This recipe is great for piping, run outs and cookie flooding.
In a grease-free mixer fitted with a paddle or beaters (not a whisk), mix the water and meringue powder into a nice frothy mix. Begin adding the sugar slowly until you reach your desired consistency. Add royal icing to a pastry bag.
