Follow me on Instagram at sharpharmade! . Sunday December 18, 2016 is Bake Cookies Day. "This day occurs in the middle of the holiday season, and is a great excuse to bake some delicious cookies to help you get through the cold, winter days! Why not try some cinnamon flavored cookies (such as the snickerdoodle) to get your kitchen smelling of winter festivities? Or there’s always the classic ‘sugar cookie’ with brightly colored royal icing, silver candy balls and sprinkles, cut into a myriad of seasonal shapes. This day is your excuse to indulge in the art (and eating) of cookies of every stripe and measure, especially those that remind you of the season. Cookies arrived in America in the 17th century, although the word arrived much later with the Dutch in its original form of “koekje”, meaning “little cake”. This was soon shortened to “cooky” or “cookie.” These “little cakes” are simply the most amazing thing to come out of an oven since bread. Every year people get together to celebrate this day by baking dozens of cookies for charity drives, orphanages, and generally bringing joy to family and friends everywhere. This day is the day to get everything together and fill your house with the joy of the holidays. Now, for those who don’t know how to bake cookies, allow me to introduce you to my favorite … Sugar cookies! . Sugar Cookie Recipe 1 ½ cups powdered sugar 1 cup butter or margarine, softened ½ t almond extract 1 egg 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour 1 t baking soda 1 t cream of tartar Mix together the powdered sugar, butter, vanilla, almond extract, and egg in a large bowl. Stir in the rest once this is blended. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F, divide the dough in half, roll out to a ¼” thick sheet. Apply cookie cutters to get desired shape, and bake for 7-8 minutes until the edges are light brown. Enjoy!" ^sPm - #sharpharmade Fr 'Days of the Year' . #bakecookies #bakecookiesday #cooky #cookie #cookies #bakecookie #fit #follow #like #celebrate #enjoy #wp #fb #twitter #tweet #buffer #tagsforlike #share #pop #blog #linkinbio #lpt #ig #insta #dessert #pop #beautiful #tasty #foodporn . @instagram @sharpharmade
