Just because cookies...

TODAY IN THE KITCHEN we made sugar cookies. It's always fun to make them, but it always seems we only make them at the holidays. So today we made just because. The kiddos love to make things in the kitchen so today this was our project!

The Recipe
1 1/4 cups sugar                       3 cups all-purpose flour (plus some for sprinkling)
1 cup  of shortening                 3/4 tsp baking powder
2 eggs                                       1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup light corn syrup            1/2 tsp salt
1 Tbsp vanilla

First I cream all the sugar and shortening together until it's light an fluffy. Next I add the eggs, vanilla and syrup. When this is well mixed I add my dry ingredients. I usually whisk them in a separate bowl before adding them to my wet ingredients. Once the dough is combined and able to be formed into a ball I place it into a piece of plastic wrap and place it in the fridge to chill for at least an hour.

Once the dough is well chilled I use my shaker of flour to dust my work surface and roll out the dough. Then the fun begins and we start cutting. Bake for 5 - 9 minutes, depending on size, at 375. I cool my cookies on a sheet of foil on the counter. Then decorate if you choose and eat! Enjoy!!
