Little man was jumping up and down singing "cookies cookies " for about 10 min on the couch and he wouldn't take "we are out of cookies " as an answer.
Of course since I bake 90% of our sugary treats , I decided to hit the kitchen and make him some cookies.
We decided upon sugar cookies with some yummy sprinkles . So okay little man added "candies" to his vocal chorus of cookies , so I know that meant sprinkles .
I used the Sugar Cookie Recipe from my old skool Five Roses Cookbook. I only used a couple alterations like always. I subbed out shortening for the butter and I used canned evaporated milk instead of milk. Plus I never follow the directions either but have listed what they recommend.
Here is there recipe with all credits to Five Roses
1 1/2 C Flour
1 1/2 Tsp Baking Powder
1/4 Tsp Salt
1/2 C Butter
1/2 C Sugar
1 Egg yolk
3 Tbsp Milk
1/2 tsp Vanilla
Stir flour, baking powder and salt together. Cream butter and add sugar gradually beating between additions. Add egg yolk and mix well. Add dry ingredients alternately with milk , add vanilla. Chill dough throughly. Roll and cut with cookie cutters if desired .
Bake on increased cookie sheet in a 350 degree oven for 8-10 min.
The chorus chant turned into an almost tantrum so I omitted the chill step and just rolled the dough into balls and pressed the sprinkles into them. Right into the oven .
A little drama trying to get them in the oven considering patience is not in my little guys personality .
I switched the oven light on as I always do so we could watch them cook. It was a long 20 min. 10 min. of cook time them of course 10 min about for them to cool.
All worth it when the smile crossed his face as he started shoveling them into his mouth.
A satisfied happy toddler wit some homemade Sugar Cookies goodness..
