Why Wee One #2 wanted to bake holiday sugar cookies at the end of March, I have no idea, but I'll all about encouraging her playing in the kitchen. This is the 8th recipe the kids have made from Linda Collister's book!
Holiday Spice Cookies
Baking with Kids
2 1/4 cups flour
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp apple-pie spice*
1 1/2 sticks (3/4 cup) cold butter
6 tbsp clear honey
*I had to call my Dad when I read this because when I make apple pie I just add cinnamon, nutmeg and sometimes a little allspice. So here I added 1/2 tsp nutmeg.
Wee One #2 bakes in her PJs a lot. Ahem. Flour gets tipped in first.
Then cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg.
We did this recipe with my stand up mixer instead of a food processor. So first we mixed the dry ingredients.
After they were mixed, we cut in the cold butter, and then mixed in the honey.
She wrapped the dough in plastic wrap and put it in the fridge for about an hour.
She rolled the cold dought out in parchment paper and cut out her shapes. She picked wintery ones!
She used a straw to make clean holes at the tops of some of them to be hung up.
We baked them for about 7 minutes at 350.
