Today my kiddos go back to school...
This day makes me a little sad,
I miss them when they are gone...
This year I decided to make Back to School cookies for them,
and let's be honest for me to scarf while they are at school...
Cut Out Sugar Cookies
1/3 cup cold butter
1/3 cup shortening
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla
dash of salt
2 cups flour
Beat butter and shortening with electric mixer, add in sugar, baking powder, and salt.
Add in flour 1/2 cup at a time until mixed well.
(Chill for a bit)
Lightly flour surface roll out to 1/4 thick, cut to desired shape and place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
Bake at 375 degrees for about 8 minutes, do not let these cookies golden.
Sugar Cookie Icing
1 cup powdered sugar
2 tsp corn syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tsp of milk or less
*add milk slowly until desired consistency.
I put mine in a Wilton squeeze bottle and used the "flood" technique.
