I have only made sugar cookie a few times but I am really starting to enjoy decorating them and figuring out all the tricks.

Happy Easter !

Also one of my friends made me realize i had never posted the recipe for my almost famous sugar cookies, so here it is :

Ingredients :

  • 3 cups unbleached organic flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup granulated organic sugar
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp of either almond extract or natural vanilla extract

1) Whisk together flour, baking powder and salt

2) Mix sugar and butter until fluffy, add egg and extract. Stir in flour in 3 additions and your dough is ready !

3)roll out between sheets of parchment paper (so no need of extra flour which would make the cookies dry) and chill the dough. Cut out cookies and then let chill on baking sheets for at least  15 minutes before baking at 350 degrees (180 Celsius) for about 12 minutes.
