Roll-Out Sugar Cookies


1 1/2 Cups Butter, room temperature

2 Cups Granulated Sugar

4 Whole Eggs

1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract

5 Cups All Purpose Flour

1 teaspoon Salt


1. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and the sugar with an electric mixer on medium speed or mix with a spoon. Do not over mix.

2. Add eggs one at a time, scraping the bowl twice.

3. Stir in the vanilla, salt and flour.

4. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours.

5. Heat oven to 350°F. Divide dough in half. On lightly floured surface, roll each half 1/4-1/2 inch thick. Cut into desired shapes and place about 2 inches apart on cookie sheet. Bake 7-10 minutes or until edges just start to turn light brown. Remove from cookie sheet onto wire cooling rack. Cool completely before decorating.

Royal Icing


3 ounces pasteurized egg whites

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

4 cups confectioners’ sugar

Food coloring


1. In a large bowl combine the egg whites and vanilla and beat on high until frothy.

2. Add confectioners’ sugar gradually and mix on low speed until sugar is incorporated and mixture is shiny. Turn speed up to high and beat until mixture forms stiff, glossy peaks. This should take approximately 5 to 7 minutes.

3. Add food coloring, if desired. If mixing several colors, divide icing into several small bowls and stir in food color one drop at a time until desired color is achieved.

4. Use immediately or store in airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

A perfect glittering crown for a perfect princess.

Helpful hint: If you do not keep pastry bags in the house you can use a sandwich bag to pipe the icing. Clip the corner to make a very small hole to squeeze the icing out!

Fondant Source is great website recommended by Sandi where you can order awesome and fun cake supplies (gel colors, dusts, sprinkles, edible glitters, etc).
