Here's how to bake the best ever big batch of sugar cookies:
Cookies are essential for a kids party. The trick to baking these delicious sugar cookies
is to allow time for the dough to firm in the freezer. Allow yourself a few hours for this
project and you'll have some yummy sugar cookies for the party.  

  • Gather the ingredients:
    2 cups butter (Land-O-Lakes is preferred and we're not getting paid to say it!)
    2 cups granulated sugar
    2 large eggs
    4 teaspoons vanilla extract
    A small, 2-lbs. bag of flour (around six cups flour)
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    1 teaspoon salt
    Sparkling colored decorating sugars

  • Cream the butter and sugar.
  • Add eggs and vanilla.
  • Mix flour, salt and baking powder.
  • Combine ingredients until you have cookie dough.
  • Make three large pancake flats and chill them until firm (30 minutes - 1 hour).
    Use saran wrap or parchment paper to wrap and divide pancakes.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Roll dough to 1/8 inches thick using powdered sugar.
  • Tip if you're going to sprinkle colorful sugars: Cut shapes with a cookie cutter, but
    before releasing onto baking sheet, load with sparkling sugar. This will help
    contain most of the sugars. Gently release, dust sugars and cut your next cookie
    until tray is loaded.
  • Tip if you're going to use a cookie icing: plan ahead and purchase meringue
    powder online as this is not an easy item to find locally. Many powders include
    icing recipes.
  • Bake for 10 minutes or until cookies turn brown at edges.
    (Yields around 5 dozen large cookies)

Have a party, sugar!
You could almost pick a party theme based on the cookie cutter designs you can find!
On this page we have the basic shapes, including stars which would be good for a
magic party, a wizard party, a Hollywood party and more. Your kid is always the star of
his own birthday! Flower cookie cutters would be pretty for a daisy party or a garden
fairy party, or just about any girls party. Then there are the special cookie cutters,
including princess, fashionista, farm animals, under the sea, which all could serve as
inspiration for a party theme.
