Somedays just demand obnoxiously big cookies covered in pink frosting and sprinkles.
I've been fighting the imminent-winter-blues. It’s almost a brain sabotage for a moment. The summer time continues to be so lovely because of so many benefits and thus many adventures and that i just can’t appear to savor the wonder within the moment, I must go and obsess with winter coming.
Darn my silly habits and lack of ability to simply relish as soon as!
Anyway, inside a somewhat pathetic attempt to reside in as soon as making amazing recollections with my babies, I made these cookies. Well, we made these cookies. They (my sweet kiddos) are very proficient at the skill of sugar cookie dough. as well as better at licking the spoon.
That's the true reward right?
I made use of my personal favorite (and seriously amazing) sugar cookie recipe along with new recent love, this Cherry Frosting .
The mixture is, it’s&... well.
I want a minute.
It’s amazing. I really like it. I wish to eat everything constantly ever.
After which mind to school for grammar training because, well, apparent.

- 1 1/2 cups butter or 3 sticks(I personally use unsalted)
- 2 cups granulated sugar
- 3 eggs
- 4 teaspoons vanilla flavoring
- 2 teaspoons almond extract
- 4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 3 cups powdered sugar (confectioners sugar)
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
- 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
- 1/4 cup maraschino cherry juice
- Inside a mixer on medium speed, beat butter and sugar until well combined, a couple of minutes.
- Include 3 eggs, the extracts and blend until just combined.
- Inside a separate bowl, sift together flour, salt, and baking powder. Gradually (in regards to a cup at any given time) add flour to butter mixture and mix. (Use a mixer or otherwise, just depends upon how strong you're.)
- It's my job to just mix ingredients until they're combined, should you over-mix this dough it'll get tough.
- Put dough in certain Saran wrap and refrigerate not less than 1 hour. (In case your dough is sticky, increase the flour, as much as 1 cup.) When you're prepared to bake, heat oven to 350 levels. (325 for convection)
- Roll dough out, make use of a 4-inch round cookies cutter to chop out cookies, and bake for six-8 minutes on the parchment lined baking sheet. The cookies be more effective when slightly under-done, not golden round the edges.
- Inside a standing mixer fitted having a whisk, mix together sugar and butter. Mix on low speed until well blended after which increase speed to medium and beat for an additional 3 minutes.
- Add almond flavoring and cherry juice still beat on medium speed for one minute more, adding more juice as needed for distributing consistency.
- Top with Rainbow Sprinkles.
After I would be a teen I visited visit my sister in Idaho there would be a loaves of bread within the mall there that offered a cookie such as this. It had been a sugar cookie with pink frosting. I am unable to recall the exact flavors, apart from it had been sweet and beautiful and brilliant. I had been attempting to recreate that feeling and appear, and merely became of recall that lovely pink cherry buttercream. so opted for it.
I honestly didn't have aim of covering these in sprinkles, however it just appeared right.
Can sprinkles be wrong?
