    I sorta went nuts.

    buttercream sugar cookies

    The plan was to make someRose Cookiesfor a friend.

    I ended up not making a single rose cookie.

    But lots of others.


    Sugar cookies with chocolate buttercream and a raspberry on top.


    Chocolate sugar cookies with buttercream and a cherry on top.


    Cherry cookies with chocolate buttercream and chocolate sprinkles.


    And a bunch more.

    I couldn't stop.


    They are so easy.


    And SO yummy.

    I didn't even consider busting out the thesauruses for yummy.  Cause that is by far the best word to describe these cookies.


    Sugar Cookies

    buttercream sugar cookies


        • 1 -½ cup Butter (I Use Unsalted)
        • 2 c Sugar
        • 2 whole Eggs
        • 2 whole Eggs Yolks
        • 4 tsp. Vanilla Extract
        • 2 tsp. Almond Extract
        • 4 c All-purpose Flour
        • 1 tsp. Salt
        • 1 tsp. Baking Powder


        1. In a mixer,beat butter and sugar until well combined,德赢体育游戏about 2 minutes.
        2. Add in 2 eggs and 2 egg yolks and mix until combined.
        3. 加入香草和杏仁香精;mix until combined.
        4. In a separate bowl,sift together flour,salt,and baking powder.Slowly (德赢体育游戏about a cup at a time) add flour to butter mixture and combine.You can use a mixer or not,just depends on how strong you are.
        5. I usually just mix ingredients until they are combined.
        6. Put dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least one hour.When you are ready to bake,heat oven to 350 degrees.
        7. Roll dough out,cut out cookies,and bake for 6-8 minutes.

        (To make them cherry flavored,simply add cherry extract instead of almond extract)

        Theperfect crusting buttercream.

        And then chocolate buttercream.And chocolate sugar cookies.  I would share the recipes… but I need to tweak them first.  Right now they are SO chocolaty and SO rich its hard to taste anything else.


        Hopefully a tutorial soon.  But right now I need to hit the gym.  And when I say gym,I mean sauna.

        Just sayin.
