So Mr. Ng and I are browsing the cookie cutters at Williams Sonoma a couple of weeks ago, and what to my wandering eye should appear, but a box of Star Wars cookie cutters:
We have a standard set of holiday cookie cutters at home. You know, the usual Christmas trees, snowmen and bells and stuff. However, as a geek, this called to me. Plus The Boy is just winding down from a major (and I mean major) StarWars phase.
I’m not an impulsive girl and there’s no way I’d spend $20 for 4 cookie cutters, but these called for me. They even called to Mr. Ng whose wallet is sealed tighter than the Declaration of Independence. So, we left William Sonoma with a box of overpriced cookie cutters.
The Boy loved them and last Saturday we got down to business.
The cookie cutters have lots of nooks and crannies, but thankfully they have those press things on the back to make dough removal easier. However, we did find it easier to dust the cookie cutters with flour a bit. (They’re a bit of a pain to wash, though.)
Oh, wait. You should have a recipe in case you want to play the home game:
Deb’s Sugar Cookies:
- 2 cups white sugar
- 1 1/2 cups softened butter
- 4 eggs
- 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 5 cups flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
The Nitty Gritty:
- In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar . Beat in eggs and vanilla. Stir in the everything else. Chill for a couple of hours. (I usually leave it overnight which makes for a very impatient 8 year old).
- Preheat oven to 400. Roll out dough and cut with your favorite cookie cutters. Place about an inch apart on an ungreased cookie sheet
- Bake 6 to 8 minutes.
