Halloween Sugar Cookies

1 cup sugar
3/4 cup butter, softened
1 egg
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon Argo Baking Powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla

Directions: Cream sugar and butter in a large bowl with eletric mixer; add egg. Beat in flour, baking powder, salt and vanilla. Form into two balls. Cover and chill 20 to 30 minutes.

Roll one portion of the dough to 1/4 inch thickness on a lightly floured surface. Cut with cookie cutters and place on ungreased cookie sheets. Repeat with remaining dough.

Bake in a preheated 350 degrees oven for 7 to 8 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for 1 to 2 minutes on baking sheet and then transfer to cooling rack. Ice and decorate as desired.




Icing

2 cups powdered sugar
2 tablespoons Karo Light Corn Syrup
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
2 to 3 tablespoons milk
food coloring


Directions: Combine all the ingredients together for a desired spreading consistency. Tint with food color, if desired.




     These cookies were very delicious! They are hard to have just one cookie because they are so good! This is the first time I've ever made sugar cookies by myself and they were easy for me! I recommend this recipe to you! I encourage you to try this recipe out! I'd also love it if you shared your stories of hope and survival here on this post!

Don't forget to stop by next Monday to see more great recipes!

Happy Baking!





I received ACH brand products and a gift card for posting these recipes. I am also entered into a giveaway for doing so.
