Ombre Easter Cookies

I have always had a love for cooking and baking. Especially baking because I have a horrible sweet tooth that has plagued me since I was born probably. I decided I would start to share my baking and cooking experiences with yall. For my first entry I will be making sugar cookies for Easter. I found the recipe and decorating idea online from another blogger over at The Sweet Adventures of Sugarbelle . She has the best cookie decorating advice around and makes the most adorable cookies ever.  I'll give the recipes below you can check out Her Blog for a more in depth lesson on cookies!

Sugar Cookie Recipe

2 sticks of unsalted butter
1 ½ cups of confectioners' sugar
1 egg
2-3 tsp of Vanilla
2tsp baking powder
1tsp salt
2 ½ - 2 ¾ cups of all purpose flour

Cream together softened butter and confectioner’s sugar. Crack the egg into a separate bowl and add vanilla. Next add that to the butter sugar mixture and mix until the egg completely mixed.  In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt, then add to mixture a little at a time. Below is a picture of what it should look like. You do not need to let it rest so this recipe is super convenient.

Next roll out to 1/4 inch thick and cut out your cookies, I made flowers and circles. Put on parcment paper covered cookie sheets and bake on 400 degrees for 7-8 minutes. For the icing I made the royal icing recipe provided on the same blog I got the cookie recipe from, but you can use whatever royal icing recipe you want. I let the cookies cool for a full day before I iced them. I lined the cookies first then filled them in. For the color design I used Wilson food color spray. For clearer instructions on the process check out the SugarBelle blog. I have to say after trying many sugar cookie recipes this is the best and I will never try another!
