Killer Halloween Sugar Cookies
Killer Sugar Cookies
What Halloween table is complete without a butcher knife shaped cookie? Apparently butcher knife cookie cutters are hard to come by, we had to improvise. We printed out a butcher knife shape and traced it onto stiff card stock and used it to trace around into our cookie dough. Once the cookies were baked we used Wilton Cookie icing in black and Wilton Color Spray in Silver to complete our knives.
For a "Killer" Sugar Cookie follow the recipe below:
SUGAR COOKIE RECIPE
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
1 cup sugar
1 large egg, lightly beaten
2 tablespoons milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Whisk together flour, salt, and baking powder in a medium bowl; set aside.
In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream butter and sugar; mix until light and fluffy.
With mixer running, add egg, milk, and vanilla; mix until well combined.
With the mixer on low, slowly add the flour mixture. Mix until just combined.
Move dough to a work surface. Shape into 2 discs, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheets with nonstick baking mats or parchment paper; set aside.
On a lightly floured work surface, roll out dough to 1/8-inch thickness.Cut with your cookie cutter.
Transfer to prepared baking sheets, leaving an inch in between. Bake until lightly golden, about 10 minutes; do not allow to brown. Transfer to wire racks to cool.
