I started out with this recipe for sugar cookies:
Basic Sugar Cookies:
200g Butter, at room temperature ( I actually used salted to bring out a little more flavor)
400g All Purpose Flour
1 tsp flavoring such as vanilla extract, I used lemon extract.
• Cream together the butter, sugar and any flavourings you’re using. Beat until just becoming
creamy in texture.
• Beat in the egg until well combined, make sure to scrape down the sides of the bowl.
Add the sifted flour and mix on low until the mixture crumbles together.
Pour the dough onto plastic wrap and wrap it. Press down to form a rectangle. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
• Cut out shapes with cookie cutters or a sharp knife.
And Taadaa! It's a lot of work to ice all these individual cookies but they do look stunning don't they?!
