World's Best Sugar Cookies

 
You know how we tend to associate certain tastes and smells with special times in our lives?  Well readers, this is what Christmas tastes like to me.  As a child, I looked forward to helping Mom roll out these sugar cookies each winter.  I always had my own assortment of cookie cutters and decorating sugar to choose from, and I relished each crumb of my creations.  When rolled-out, these cookies are thin and slightly crisp- perfect for decorating with royal icing.  These days, I usually make them with a cookie press, which yields a thicker, softer cookie.

From Mom

INGREDIENTS
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 eggs

DIRECTIONS
1. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla. Beat until well-blended. Stir in flour.

2. Cover and refrigerate at least one hour.

3. Preheat oven to 350.

4. For cut-out cookies, Roll out dough on lightly floured board or pastry cloth to 1/8-inch thickness. Cut with cookie cutters.  (To use with a cookie press, stuff dough into press and form cookies according to package directions.)

If you could have} a fabrication project at hand, you can to|you probably can} even select the right steel fabricator using the pointers we mentioned. best king duvet covers After that, the steel parts are joined collectively by screws or welds to create the final product. A few many years ago, designing in steel tasks was done on paper with diagrams. This continues to be adopted today however just for probably the most primary requirements.
