If it's not clear: cooking is my love language. So, when my friend sent us some of his beef for a Blind Taste Test (Corn-Fed vs. Grass-Fed), I told him I'd send him his cooler back filled with cookies. Between a birthday dinner, the science fair, and being wiped out with horrible allergies, I didn't get around to baking anything this weekend. Last night!!
The Enthusiastic Kitchen Elf made these simple sugar roll-out cookies. And we got to use our fun new cookie cutters from Fred and Friends. Link below. We spelled out our gratitude. They'll go in the mail today.
- 1 C butter
- 1 C organic granulated sugar
- 1 large egg
- 2 t baking powder
- 1 t organic orange blossom water
- dash of ground cardamom
- dash of ground ginger
- dash of ground nutmeg
- dash of ground cinnamon
- 2-3⁄4 C flour (I refrained from using white whole wheat for these!)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar together until lightened and fluffy.
Beat in the egg, orange blossom water, and spices. Gently mix in the flour and baking powder until just combined.
Between two pieces of parchment paper, roll your dough out to 1/8"-1/4" thickness. Use your cookie cutters then place the cookies on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until light browned. Let cool on a wire rack.
