X'mas Cookies and Cupcakes

看到我 今天blog上的照片,就可以想到我两天的休息日是怎样过的-都就献了翻糖。昨天答了同事她做了一Alice In The Wonderland 她的朋友当生日礼物。今天,我和Bec两人斗努力的做了50 cupcakes 义卖wards筹款病人礼物。自己又另外做Xmas sugar cookies用(个星期天的圣集餐用)。

我和Bec了今天十点开工,本来很有心思的慢慢做,后来时间很快的一份一秒溜走,,她又要敢去赴,两人开始有点紧张了,从很有心思做到打般的速度,两人是用了五个下来完成这项富有意的工作。明天,年轻的Bec意的要穿上圣小姐装去糕呢。 哈哈!Thank You Bec.

P.S. Mickey n Minnie Mouse 是特别给Bernice做的,记得那天她告诉我她想做米奇老鼠给她的宝贝,我告诉她我会在今天试一试。Bernice,希望你喜欢。

Sugar Cookies

325g sifted all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
220 grams unsalted butter, at room temperature
200 grams sugar
1 large eggs (straight from refrigerator)
1 teaspoons (10 mL) pure vanilla extract
1. In large bowl, sift together flour, salt, and baking powder. Set aside.
2. Use an electric mixer to cream butter and sugar until fluffy. Beat in eggs.
3. Add flour mixture and mix on low speed until thoroughly combined. Stir in vanilla extract.
4. Remove dough from bowl, make a ball, and place on a large piece of plastic wrap on counter.
5. Wrap the sides of wrap over the ball, then press down with the palm of your hand and make a disc about 2 thick. 
6. Chill disc of dough for about one hour.
7. Remove the disc and remove plastic wrap. On a lightly flour bench top, place 2 wooden dowels on either side of your dough to ensure even thickness when you roll out the dough.
8. Preheat your oven to 180C. Cut your shapes using the cutters of your choice. Place the cookies into freezer for 15 minutes before baking. Then bake 10-12 minutes, or until edges are golden brown.
10. Cool sheets on wire racks for 10 minutes, then gently remove cookies and place on wire racks to finish cooling.
