This is a simple sugar cookies recipe with a twist of love for the amazing Hello Kitty ♥♥♥
The Recipe: (makes about 2 dozens (24 cookies))
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
1 cup sugar
1 large egg, lightly beaten
2 tablespoons brandy, or milk
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1. Whisk together flour, salt, and baking powder in a medium bowl. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream butter and sugar; add dry ingredients, and mix until incorporated. With mixer running, add egg, brandy (or milk), and vanilla; mix until incorporated.
2. Transfer dough to a work surface. Shape into 2 discs, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheets with nonstick baking mats or parchment paper; set aside.
4. On a lightly floured work surface, roll out dough to 1/8-inch thickness. Cut into desired shapes, and transfer to prepared baking sheets, leaving an inch in between. Leftover dough can be rolled and cut once more. Bake until lightly golden, about 10 minutes; do not allow to brown. Transfer to wire racks to cool.
☆ believe it or not the longer it stays on the cookie jar the tastier it gets! (*≧▽≦)
(not too long though, shelf life is probably around 2 weeks)
☆ i made these (the one in the pictures) with whole wheat flour thus the texture are harder and the color is more brownish
☆ this recipe is perfect for bentos and other gatherings to show off your kitty love!
