Baking and Decorating Sugar Cookies with my Sons

18 Dec

Every year me and my boys have a tradition of spending a day baking christmas cookies together and have done this every year since they were a year old. We had a great time and were joined this year by my sons girlfriend Kaitlyn and one of his good friends Jake. We started with awesome sugar cookies baked in many different shapes and sizes. I made 3 different homemade icings which were out of this world. I did a Buttercream Icing, w/ cream cheese, then I did a pourable Fondant, and finally a very Creamy Icing.  See below for the Poured Fondant Recipe, the Buttercream Recipe can be found at the top of the page under the Buttercream Icing Tab. I am attaching some Photos of our day of baking cookies.

Ingredients:

  • 6 cups sifted confectioners’ sugar (about 1 1/2 lbs.)
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon clear vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup of cream cheese (optional)

Mix together the corn syrup, milk and vanilla extract using a hand mixer

Then slowly add 2 cups of powdered sugar at a time to the mixture and blend well

If you are going to use the cream cheese that can be added once you have added all the powdered sugar to the mixture
