|Sugar Saucers with Pink Sprinkles|
Since we moved, I ended up storing our holiday decorations because this house doesn't look good when it's too "busy". Since I can't surround myself with holiday reminders, I generally make food to celebrate the holidays. For example, I'll probably make Irish Stew and Irish Soda Bread for St. Patrick's Day.
In honor of Valentines Day, I made these pink Sugar Saucers, one of the best sugar cookies I've eaten. Unlike most cookies, these cookies are better at room temperature than they are warm.
|When the dough was blended, I refrigerated it overnight|
|Use an ice cream scoop so the cookies are the same size|
|Shape the dough balls into patties and then cover one side with sprinkles|
The recipe can be found at this website.
Like the website author, I too used a 2 ounce scoop and ended up baking them about 14 minutes. The recipe doesn't suggest forming the cookies into patties but I found the cookies have better edges when I've made patties. When I ran out of sprinkles, I coated the remaining patties with vanilla sugar. Yum!
