For TWD this week, one of my favorite bloggers, Ulrike of Küchenlatein, chose Grandma’s All-Occasion Sugar Cookies. These may technically be “all-occasion,” but I bet that Ulrike knows they’re exactly what Santa hopes to find waiting for him on Christmas Eve.
These are sweet and buttery…great with tea, hot chocolate, eggnog…Thank you, Dorie’s grandma!! You can cut them out in fancy shapes and decorate them a zillion ways, but I took the easy route and just did slice-and-bake. I made a little glaze from powdered sugar and bourbon (naughty but in the nicest way, right?), and shook on some sprinkles.
Amy–Thanks! The glaze was super easy. I just took some sifted powdered sugar and whisked in enough bourbon to get the consisteny I wanted (spreadable but not runny). I didn’t make a big batch of cookies, so I didn’t need much glaze…probably started with 1/3 cup sugar and a couple teaspoons of booze, then made adjustments from there. If you accidentally make it too thin, just add more powdered sugar.
