For me, as the holidays approach, baking mode kicks into high gear. We bake for school, church, get-togethers and cookie swaps. You name it, we are usually baking something at least once a week in our kitchen. I was so excited when our sponsor, Hobby Hill Farm, shared that they wanted to make one of our follower’s baking even more enjoyable by giving away a set of their popular chicken, rooster and chick cookie cutters. One lucky winner will receive their very own set. Complete with fail proof recipes for the cookies and frosting, these cookies are sure to be a real hit wherever you share them.
Sugar Cookies as found on the cookie cutters
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
2/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 cups sifted flour
Mix until all ingredients are well blended. Chill dough 3-4 hours before rolling.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Roll out on a lightly floured counter to 1/4″ thick and cut with your favorite Ann Clark cookie cutters, then transfer cookies onto cookie sheets that have been lined with parchment paper or silicone liners. Bake about 8-10 minutes or until lightly colored. Let cookies cool slightly on cookie sheet, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Decorate with Royal Icing or eat just plain.
