Chanukah Sugar Cookies

  • 3/4 cup butter, room temp.
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • pinch salt
  • star cookie cutter
  • 2 cups confectioner’s sugar
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • 3-4 Tblsp water
  • blue food colouring
  • white shimmer sprinkles

Directions:

  1. In a large bowl, or stand-mixer, beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy and well combined. Beat in the egg and vanilla.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. Slowly add the flour mixture to the butter mixture a 1/3 at a time. At this point the mixture will start to form a dough.
  4. Divide the dough in half. Shape each half into a thick disc and wrap well with plastic wrap. Place in the fridge for an hour, or also overnight.
  5. Preheat the oven to 375F/180C. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  6. Take one of the discs out of the fridge and let stand for 15mins until the dough has softened and is easier to roll. Roll the dough out to a large circle or rectangle, about 1/8″ in thickness. Take your star cookie cutter (or any cookie cutter shape you want!) and start cutting out your shapes! Place each cut-out onto the parchment paper.
  7. Bake the cookies for about 6mins until just starting to golden. Allow to cool.
Decoration:
  1. Sift the confectioner’s sugar into a medium bowl. Add the almond extract and water until you get a runny frosting. Add two drops of the blue food colouring (add more if you want a deeper blue) You can add more water to get a runnier consistency if need be.
  2. Dip the top of each cookie in the frosting, sprinkle the white shimmer sprinkles over-top, and set back onto the parchment paper, or drying wrack to dry for several hours.
Makes about 50 cookies.
