Christmas Cookie Fun with Tovolo




With Christmas, just days away lots of people are baking cookies. This year I was thrilled to work with a company that embraces the love of baking as much as I do. We were sent some cool cookie cutters from Tovolo from their Christmas collection. What is great about these cookie cutters is that even if you are not a cookie aficionado you can still make perfect cookies. With each set, you are able to make 6 different patterns. These give you a guide for decorating but also look great to just use as a stamp for the dough. My kids had a great time using them and were so very proud of the cookies they made...aren't they just perfect for Santa?

My sugar cookie recipe

Yield: depends on the thickness of cookies
Soft cut out sugar cookie recipe that keeps its shape and dough does not need to be chilled before baking- perfect edges every time!

Ingredients:
  • 1 Cup butter, softened
  • 1 Cup granulated white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
Directions:
Preheat oven to 350° F.
In the bowl of your mixer cream butter and sugar until smooth.
Beat in extracts and egg.
In a separate bowl combine baking powder with flour and add a little at a time to the wet ingredients. The dough will be very stiff. If it becomes too stiff for your mixer turn out the dough onto a countertop surface.
I DO chill my dough overnight BUT you do not need to.
Divide into workable batches, roll out onto a floured surface and cut. You want these cookies to be on the thicker side (closer to 1/4 inch rather than 1/8).
Bake at 350 for 6-8 minutes. Let cool on the cookie sheet until firm enough to transfer to a cooling rack.

Tovolo also offers a wonderful measuring set that I absolutely adore. It's easy to use and even easier to read! Plus they are magnetic and nesting to keep them together for better storage.
