For a person that is traumatized by the act of rolling out dough, I sure picked a heck of a project for my son’s recent birthday. Several years ago, my mother made these adorable sugar cookies perched atop popsicle sticks for my son’s play group. Each cookie had its own little personality and people went crazy over them. I thought it would be fun to try to make cookies that actually looked like my son’s classmates and bring them in for his birthday. Though the project had enough missteps to dissuade me from trying to make them completely personalized, they came out really cute and some kids actually got cookies that looked like them without my even trying! One girl even had blue ribbons in her hair, just like the cookie. This is a rather big commitment of a project. I did it over the course of two days.
Preparation time: 3 hours if you’re fast and don’t have to keep going to the store for more powdered sugar
Cooking time: 1 hour
Number of servings (yield): 28-32 cut outs
I couldn’t believe you were undertaking this project because I know how labor intensive it is. I recall asking you to help me make the mushroom cookies at Christmastime and you couldn’t finish the batch as a helper!
Mom, will you remind me of this next time I get a hare-brained idea to do something insane such as this? I am clearly not hard-wired for tedious projects. However, just this morning a certain someone asked me when we’ll be starting our annual gingerbread house AND if this year we could make a gingerbread airport?
Thanks so much for the sugar cookie recipe! Used it last night to make pumpkin cut-out cookies for my 3rd graders class, the recipe I’d been using was impossible to roll out and thought I’d try something new. This worked great and they were delicious!
