Every year that I need to make a halloween treat, I go with the easy peasy eyeball sugar cookies. I love me some sugar cookies, but I’m very picky. They must be the correct sugar cookies. The correct sugar cookies are from the 1973 Junior League of Wichita Sunflower Sampler.
Powdered Sugar Cookies (online as Mary’s Sugar Cookies)
Mix sugar and butter. Add egg and flavoring and mix thoroughly. Add flour and other dry ingredients.
Refrigerate for 2 hours, or freeze for one if you’re antsy. Roll out on floured board and cut with a cutter.Preheat the oven to 375. Bake 7 to 8 minutes. I generally put the first sheet on the lower rack, then fill the second sheet and put on the top rack.
Then I start the 8 minutes. Let cool and frost or put sprinkles on top.
Tip that I use – if you like funny shapes like round (and I generally do).
