Sugar Cookies

2010 is fast approaching, but I’m not talking about the upcoming New Year, although, yikes, that’s coming up fast too! I’m talking about the 2010 Vancouver Olympic Games. Or maybe I should refer to them as the Cool Sporting Event That Takes Place in British Columbia Between 2009 and 2011.

Had some fun last night decorating some sugar cookies that are non-offensive to VANOC (I hope!) and definitely GO CANADA!

I love sugar cookies. They’re sturdy, decoratable, and most of all delicious! Not too sweet, with crisp edges and a soft chew, they are the perfect canvas for all of your cookie decorating desires. Personally, my go-to is Martha’s recipe, but if you do a quick search on google, you’ll find lots of recipes to choose from.

Some quick tips:

  • Don’t work the dough too much, it’ll make your cookies tough
  • Roll out your dough 1/4 of an inch if you like your cookies a bit chewy, 1/8 if you prefer them crisp
  • Leave the dough in the fridge if you’re not working with it; warm dough will spread in the oven when you bake it and your cookies will lose their shape
  • Keep an eye on your oven! Cookies bake (and brown!) quickly
