I have highlighted 2 dogs products so far for the PetGuide and thought I would break it up with the people treat I served for the party. I mean a puppy turning one is means for celebration right!!
I tend to purchase the cookie mix in the bag for sugar cookie cut outs but this time I ventured our and tried from scratch!
I found this Sugar Cookie recipe on Momswhothink.com and thought I would give it a try. Kids were still home from school so I had some helpers.
I had never used powdered sugar in my recipes before and my husband had always talked about his grandmother’s sugar cookies and remembers her putting powdered sugar in those.
They were a success. He said he was tempted to eat the entire batch. The dough was a little sticky but held up with multiple rollings of the scraps. I do not like to waste the cookie dough.
I also froze them, unfrosted, for a week before the party. I only used a ziploc bag so I had a few broken ones. Next time I will use a tupperware container.
The day before the event I made the frosting from this site but it was a little too brown in color, due to the vanilla, to look like bones. I had some Wilton’s Cookie frosting in the pantry so I finished off the batch using that.
Appearance and Taste Test over all winner: Wilton’s Cookie frosting won.
This is definitely going to be my go to recipe for Christmas cut outs.
