Grinch Sugar Cookies
  • 2½ cups flour
  • 1½ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1½ sticks butter, room temp
  • 1 egg
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 2 Tbsp water
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • green sugar crystals
  • red decorating frosting
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a small bowl mix together the flour, baking powder and salt.
  3. In a large bowl, using an electric hand mixer, cream the butter until smooth. Add in the sugar and mix until well combined. Next add in the egg, vanilla and water and mix until light and fluffy.
  4. Add in half the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Repeat with the remaining dry ingredients. Be sure not to over mix. You want the dough just combined, use a wooden spoon to incorporate any flour that didn’t get in there.
  5. Using a small scoop form the dough into balls then roll in the green sugar until coated. Place onto a lined baking sheet and press lightly to form the cookie.
  6. Bake for for about 12 minutes. Allow the cookie to cool completely before decorating.
  7. Pipe on your best hearts and enjoy!
