Assorted Eggless Sugar Cookies

December 20, 2007 at 6:29 pm 15 comments

I used simple cookie dough last night and made three different varieties – sugar dusted stars,jam thumbprints and caramel glazed flowers (out of them already) . I made simple cookie dough and with three forth batter I rolled out and cut 2 different shapes.The remaining one forth batter I used to make jam thumbprints. For the cookie dough,
2 cups all purpose flour
1.5 cups sugar
1/2 cup butter softened
1 tsp vanilla
1 tbsp plain yogurt/curd
1 tbsp whipping cream/cool whip
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
To make the dough,In a mixing bowl,blend butter with a fork till fluffy. Add sugar half cup at a time and blend until smooth creamy consistency arrives.Add vanilla ,yogurt,whipping cream and blend again till everything mixes together. In another bowl,sieve together flour,salt,baking powder and baking soda. Add this mixture 1 tbsp at a time into the butter mixture and blend until it forms a soft dough.Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 Min’s and not more than 3hrs. After 30 Min’s take out the dough and divide into 2 parts.
Preheat oven to 375F.
On a lightly floured surface,roll out one part of dough to half inch thick.
For the sugar dusted stars :
Cut out stars using star shaped cookie cutter. re-roll the left over scrap and cut out stars again.
For the caramel glazed flowers :
Cut out flowers using flower shaped cookie the left over scrap and cut out flowers again.
For the jam thumb prints :
Make small balls out of cookie dough and make a dent in the centre with the thumb finger.Fill the dent with desired jam or preserves.
Bake at 375F for about 7-8 Min’s. Take out and dust the stars with icing sugar .
For the caramel ,I used store bought caramel bits.Melt them in microwave for 30 secs and add 1 tsp milk,stir and microwave for another 5 secs .Dip the cookies into this sauce and take them out.Let them dry for some time.
My family liked caramel ones and they are already over.I am sending these cookies as my contribution for Susan’s Eat Cristmas Cookies .
