It seems to me that on the first day of September a switch was flicked and the weather started getting cooler and wetter and darker way quicker than I was ready for! So for the next four weeks I’m going to be baking rainbows to keep the summer vibe alive. I hope you like them and they inspire you to have a go too.
Sugar Cookies Recipe
225g softened butter
225g caster sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
425g plain flour
Bake at 170°C for about 8 mins
Cream the butter and sugar until incorporated, don’t over do it as you want these cookies to hold their shape and not expand too much during baking. Scrape down the sides and mix again.
Add the egg, combine, scrape down the sides and mix again.
Add vanilla extract and combine.
Sift flour and salt into the mixing bowl. Mix on a low speed for 30 sec, when it clumps together it’s ready.
I cut 2 sheets of parchment paper the size of my fridge shelf and roll out the dough between them before refrigerating it for at least 1 hour.
Cut out your cookies and place onto a lined baking tray. I used the cutest rainbow cookie cutter that I borrowed from a friend, thanks Klau 😉
e for 8-10 mins and allow to cool before decorating.
t definitely find some kids to share your cookies with, my kids were so excited and it gave me that awesome summer feeling.
