You know the ones? People give them as Christmas gifts every year.
Basic recipe. My idea was to make those cute, shaped sugar cookies and decorate them with icing.
In mixing bowl, combine mix with 1/2 cup of butter. I used the 50/50 cause I am very serious about my health and transfats. Or I might have had a coupon.
3 tablespoons of milk. Again, I’m a health nut, so I went with Smart Balance.
Take a moment and pick out some cute Christmas cookie cutters.
Add in one egg. Remark how a couple of tiny shells won’t be all that noticeable.
Hmm. Notice that it looks kinda soupy for laying out and cutting with cookie cutters.
Come up with the brilliant idea to just lay the cookie cutter on the foil, then spoon in the mixture. Look we’ve got trees, and gingerbread men and snowflakes. Hmmm. Says it should make 24 but I only count 9. Strange. No matter. Pop them in the oven at 375 for 10 minutes.
Plan B. Decorate them anyway.
Ahh. There’s my tree.
And look at our snowman, awesome. Moron Test Grade – never mind. I don’t think I can blame this one on the sugar cookie recipe. Unlike the other failed test kitchens that were TOTALLY their fault.
