Sugar cookies are a classic treat that everyone loves, and they're a blank canvas for decorating. We're going to show you unique and fun ideas to add flair to sugar cookies. Hi, I'm Cricket Azima.
We're going to start with an adorable recipe called pop art cookies. Preheat your oven to 375. Start with a sugar cookie mix. Add softened butter or margarine, egg, and for cut out cookies, add flour. Stir until a dough is formed.
Now you're going to lightly flour your surface. Place your dough on your cutting board, and you're ready to roll. Roll out the dough until it's about a quarter inch thick. Using a three inch circle cookie cutter, I'm going to press out my cookies. Before you put the cookies into the oven, you're going to take a rounded wooden stick and insert into the side of each cookie so it looks like a lollipop.
Once you have a stick into each cookie, you're going to bake the cookies for nine to eleven minutes. Once cooled, it's time to have fun frosting. I used some white frosting and added food coloring to make these fun colors. Now it's time to make the pop art on your cookies.
I'm going to use some orange frosting, and I'm going to cover the circle completely. Then I'm going to add some of these cute blue sprinkles, some yellow. Ta-dah! Isn't that adorable? To make them extra cute, you can serve the pop art cookies in color coordinated glasses filled with jelly beans. Or you can even stick them into cupcakes and write letters on them. Spell out a name. Have fun with your pop art cookies.
The next fun sugar cookie recipe combines one of my favorite cookies with one of my favorite breakfast foods, cinnamon rolls. These cinna-spin cookies are really fun to make an even more fun to eat.
Preheat your oven to 375. Once again, we'll use the same sugar cookie dough we've been using. Add softened butter or margarine, egg, and cinnamon. After your dough is made, you're going to roll about a tablespoon of dough into a long rope about five inches long. Just simply dip into a line of cinnamon. Then you're going to carefully roll your cookie so it looks like a cinnamon roll.
You'll place each cookie on a cookie sheet about two inches apart. Then you'll put them in the oven and bake them for about seven to ten minutes. I've made a glaze with some powdered sugar and milk, and I'm drizzling the cookies until they look even more like cinnamon rolls.
So that's it-- fun, easy, new ways to reinvent the classic sugar cookie. I'm Cricket Azima, bringing you great ideas from Betty Crocker with Howdini. To see more of our videos of great cookie recipes visit us at BettyCrocker.com/CookieFun.
