Mom’s sugar cookies

Mom’s sugar cookies

Easy to work with dough that yields crisp, crunchy cookies. This is my mom’s adaptation of McCall’s cook book’s “Old Fashioned Sugar Cookies”. They’re the Christmas cookies I grew up with.

Stained Glass Cookies

Stained Glass Cookies

This is a fun cookie decoration technique and makes you look pretty pro you can select candy flavours to complement the cookie or do this with a neutral flavoured dough.

Egg Yolk Paint

Egg Yolk Paint

This has become my top cookie decoration technique, it’s fun, the results are beautiful, it doesn’t add sugar to the cookies, the cookies stay crispy, and it’s done once the cookies are out of the oven.

Rose Water Glaze

Rose Water Glaze

Another variation on America’s Test Kitchen’s all purpose glaze, I like their use of cream cheese, it helps mellow the sugar. This variation is just right to go on a flavoured cookie without overpowering it. If the cookie is more of a neutral flavour, there’s room to intensify the glaze with more rosewater.

Rich Rolled Cardamom Cookies

Rich Rolled Cardamom Cookies

The classic Joy of Cooking rich rolled sugar cookies – they’re tender, not crisp. I wanted to make something a little different from the standard sugar cookie. Enter ground cardamom.

Cookie Decorating Glaze

Cookie Decorating Glaze

This is America’s Test Kitchen’s “Easy All Purpose Glaze” just slightly different way of making it lemon flavoured – going for “subtle” to not over power the cardamom cookies. Variations here too!
