Classic Sugar Cookies

Products Used

Ingredients

*Spoon & Sweep method: Use a spoon to fill measuring cup with flour until required amount is obtained. Scooping measuring cup directly into flour bag will firmly pack flour resulting in too much flour required for recipe.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. In a mixing bowl, cream the Crisco and sugar together.
  3. Beat one egg in another bowl and measure out 2 tablespoons. Add 2 tablespoons of egg into mixing bowl with water and vanilla until mixed.
  4. Then, blend in remaining dry ingredients on low speed till mixed.
  5. For slice and bake cookies, roll dough in a log form shape and slice to 1/4 inch thickness for baking.
  6. To make cut out cookies, roll out dough to 1/4 inch thickness and cut out desired shapes.
  7. Sprinkle with additional granulated sugar if desired.
  8. Before baking, dough can be wrapped in wax paper and chilled in refrigerator for 30 minutes to provide firmer dough for cutout cookies.
  9. Bake 11 to 12 minutes on an ungreased cookie sheet until the edges just begin to brown. Be careful not to over bake.
  10. Remove from oven once done and cool on a wire rack.
  11. Prepare Basic Butter Cream Frosting or Royal Icing and add your choice of food coloring. Decorate cookies as desired.

    I made these for Mother's Day. They are so easy to make. They came out so good the first time so I made them again. First time I used a cookie scoop, 2nd time I rolled out and cut. Great

    Galletas de Azúcar Imperial

    Products Used

    Ingredientes

    • 1/2 taza + 1/2 cucharadas manteca Crisco con sabor de mantequilla
    • 1/2 taza + 2 cucharadas Imperial Sugar Azúcar Granulada Extra Fina
    • 2 cucharadas un huevo grande
    • 1 cucharada vainilla
    • 1 1/4 taza harina blanqueada (Spoon and sweep method*)
    • 1/4 cucharadita sal
    • 1/4 cucharadita bicarbonato de soda
    • 1/2 cucharadita cremor tártaro

    *Método de cuchara y barrido: use una cuchara para llenar la taza de medir con harina hasta obtener la cantidad requerida. Si coloca la taza de medir directamente en la bolsa de harina, empacará la harina con firmeza y se necesitará demasiada harina para la receta.

    Caliente el horno a 350° F.

    1. En un tazón para mezclar, bata “la mantequilla” Crisco y el azúcar.
    2. Bata un huevo en otro tazón y mida 2 cucharadas. Añada las dos cucharadas de huevo al tazón con el agua y la vainilla hasta que queden mezclados.
    3. Añada el resto de los ingredientes secos a baja velocidad hasta que queden mezclados.
    4. Sin enfriar, moldee la masa en forma de cilindro y corte en tajadas de ¼ de pulgadas de ancho para hornear.
    5. Para hacer galletas moldeadas, estire la masa a ¼ de pulgadas de grueso y córtelas con el molde que guste.
    6. Espolvoree con azúcar Imperial granulada si desea.
    7. Antes de hornear, la masa puede ser envuelta en papel de cera y enfriada por 30 minutos para hacer que la masa quede un poco más firme antes de moldearla.
    8. Hornee por 11 a 12 minutos en un molde sin engrasar hasta que las orillas empiecen a dorarse. Tenga cuidado de no hornearlas demasiado.
    9. Saque del horno cuando estén listas y enfríelas en una rejilla. Decore con glaseado de azúcar Imperial como lo desee.
