I love this time of year. It’s finally cool enough to bake and it’s one holiday after the other. All of them a great excuse to make sweet treats.

Starting with Halloween.

Costumes, decorating, candy and other fun treats. Everyone gets to feel like a kid at Halloween.

It’s also, usually, the first class party at schools. These Iced Sugar Cookies can be made ahead of time as a treat for the kids or they can be decorated as party of a party.

The best cookies always start with Butter and Dixie Crystal Sugar.

When a cookie only has five ingredients, you want to make sure you are using quality ingredients. You want real butter, not margarine. Butter and margarine have different melting temperatures which will affect the texture of your cookie. Also, there is no flavoring in these cookies so you want that “real butter” taste.

Use a good sugar like Dixie Crystals Pure Cane Sugar. Non-GMO and always provides consistent results.

I used to consider making cut-out cookies a chore. Making the dough. Chilling the dough. Using cookie cutters to cut out shapes, then rerolling the scraps. Somewhere along the way, I developed easy shortcuts to make it easier.

Next time you go to the Chinese restaurant, ask for extra chopsticks. Placing them on either side of your dough while rolling it out will give you an even thickness.

Place chopsticks on both sides of dough to ensure even thickness of roll cookie dough

And if you don’t have chopsticks on hand, you can use clean pencils the same way. (pencils are thicker than chopsticks so keep that in mind when it comes to your baking times.)

You can use 2 (new) pencils place on both sides of dough to make sure your dough is an even thickness.

Choose shapes that don’t require a second roll. Shapes with straight lines like triangles and squares.

Use a bench scraper as an easy tool to cut sugar cookie dough

I love using my bench scraper for cutting cookie dough. And it’s great when kids are doing it. No sharp knife edges to worry about with tiny hands. The Bench Scraper also works as a lifter for transferring cookies to your baking sheet.

I prefer easy for my decorating too.  Starting with a simple glaze icing, the pure white of Dixie Crystals Powdered Sugar lets the true color of food coloring come through.

This glaze is perfect for decorating cookes and colors stay true.

Choosing a simple design like Candy Corn, means no special tools required.

A simple glaze icing makes decorating cookies easy

Just a spoon, some toothpicks and a little mess. (but isn’t the mess half the fun of it?) Spoon the icing onto your cookie, then use a toothpick to spread the icing to the area you want. Don’t worry if the icing isn’t smooth, as the cookie sets, the icing will settle and create a nice shiny top.
