Why, decorating cookies of course!
So Reilly and I (but mostly Reilly) decided to make some cookies to decorate tomorrow! We found a recipe on allrecipes.com and worked on it this morning. First, I laid out all the ingredients:
|mixing the dry ingredients|
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 cup white sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3/4 cup butter
Mix together flour and salt in a bowl. Easy right?
We softened our butter in the microwave for 45 seconds. Then in a medium bowl, mix together the remaining ingredients (sugar, egg, vanilla, butter and sugar). The recipe says to use an actual mixer, but I just used a whisk. It was just as easy.

After whisking the wet ingredients together, add them to the dry ingredients and mix until they form a smooth dough. We just used our hands! After mixing it together really well, you need to wrap it up in saran wrap and chill for 1 hour in the fridge.
