Sugar Cookies by Tish from Dreme Cake Artistry and Paula Deen
Sugar Cookie Recipe used for the Cookies made by Tish from Dreme Cake Artistry
I have entered some cookies into your contest (the 3d wedding dresses and other designs), and would like to submit a recipe that I use. It is a recipe from Food Network that aired on Paula Deen's Show. Wedding Dresses by Tish at Dreme Cake Artistry. Here it is below:
2 1/3 cups plus 2 tablespoons (11-ounces) all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks; 6-ounces) unsalted butter
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons (4-ounces) granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, salt, and baking powder. Set aside.
In the bowl of a standing mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, combine the butter and sugar and beat on medium speed until light and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla and beat until combined.
Add the flour mixture in 2 batches, scraping down the bowl after each addition. Beat until the dough just comes together, being careful not to over mix.
Turn out the dough onto a lightly floured surface. Form the dough into a ball, wrap it in plastic, and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Place the ball of dough between 2 pieces of parchment paper and roll out to 1/4-inch thick. Keeping the dough in the parchment, transfer to a cookie sheet and place in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Cut out the cookies in the desired shapes and place on a half-sheet pan lined with parchment paper or an un-greased nonstick cookie sheet, at least 1-inch apart. Transfer to the freezer and chill for at least 15 minutes or until they are firm.
Bake until the cookies are light golden brown, about 10 minutes.
Let cookies cool completely on the sheets before decorating.
