Okay, to the main point of this post. I love baking. I especially love baking around the holidays. There are certain recipes that only get used during this time of year. What makes this more fun is using vintage items to bake.
Simple Sugar Cookies
Recipe yields about 2 dozen (depending on the size and shapes you cut out).
1 cup (2 sticks) softened butter
1 cup powered sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoons salt
2 1/2 cups flour
Cream together the butter and sugar. Add the remaining ingredients and stir until a soft dough ball forms. Cover in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour (or more, up to two days) then roll out on a lightly floured surface and cut out your shapes. Bake at 375 F for 8-10 minutes, until the edges are just beginning to brown.
|Used my vintage cookie cutters to create the shapes.|
|Does anyone else use pans this old? |
I aquired it from my great aunt before I started college.
|Looks like a toddler decorated them... but it was ME!|
Yes, I ate a couple of these... and they're delicious. They're making their way to my first Christmas party of the year tonight.
