This is how it's made Sugar Cookies

For the cookies:

  1. Preheat oven to 190°C, 375 °F, Gas mark 5 and grease some baking trays.
  2. Beat the Stork with the sugar in a large bowl with electric mixer until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes.
  3. Beat in the egg and vanilla scraping sides occasionally, until blended. Mix in flour, baking powder and salt just until blended. (Do not overmix).
  4. Using lightly floured hands take a walnut size piece of dough and shape into balls. Arrange 3-inches apart on the baking trays. Gently press balls into 2-1/2-inch circles. Pinch bottom to form point of "heart". Gently indent dough in centre on top to shape into "heart".
  5. Bake for 12 to 14 minutes until edges are lightly golden. Cool for 2 minutes on wire rack; remove from sheets and cool completely.

For the decoration (optional):

  1. To decorate, stir 4 teaspoons of water with the icing / powdered sugar until you have a nice thick glace icing. Add food colouring if desired.
  2. Spread the icing on cookies and add sprinkles.

Tip: These cookies are great fun to decorate with the kids, let them add a variety of sprinkles.
