Sugar Cookie Ingredients:
5 C flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 C soft unsalted butter
2 C granulated sugar
Now to make the tasty Royal Icing!
2 egg whites
1 cups powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
Orange, brown, red and gold yellow gel food coloring
After you have made your cookies: (Autumn Leaf Cookies)
- First step for each of the leaf cookies outline it in the color you prefer. Doing this in an assembly method will make it go much faster. Allow the icing outline at least 30 seconds to dry before filling the body of the cookie in with the other the rest of the icing. (After outlining all of these leaf cookies you can push some the remaining icing into a bowl and add the 1 tsp of water and mix well to get the right consistency.) Leave some of the icing in the frosting bag for additional accent work on each of the leaves. Using a butter knife to spread it from the outlined part inwards to the center.
