I am introducing my son to food art, so I started with textures similar to play dough. Sugar cookies are a perfect texture and not too sticky. Nothing better than making shapes with cookie dough and then eating them (after baking of course).
Cookie Mold Sugar Cookies in allrecipes by Maura
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 1 cup white sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- cooking spray with flour
How I deviated from the original recipe?
I used I Can’t Believe It’s not Butter instead of butter.
I used Swerve instead of the 1 cup of sugar
- Put the butter (I Can’t Believe It’s not Butter) out till it gets to room temperature. Put in a bowl and blend with the sugar (sugar substitute).
- Add the eggs and vanilla and blend.
- Add the flour and salt into the same bowl and blend.
- Once mixture is well blended, put in the refrigerator for an hour. I put mine overnight.
- Take out and roll, cut, and bake. Sprinkle with sugar if desired. Because we had the tiniest little cookies, I wondered what the baking time should be. 370 degrees for 10 minutes worked fine.
The End Result?
I was surprised by the result. At first, I thought they tasted like biscuits, but the ones we sprinkled a little sugar on tasted like sugar cookies. I put some gel food coloring (couldn’t find the drops in stores) in the dough and sugar to give them some color.
