King Arthur Flour sent me out four bottles of edible glitter (green, silver, red, and blue), their famous Vanilla Sugar Cookie Mix and a set of five Snowflake Cookie Cutters - The cookie cutters are very sturdy and uniquely shaped ranging from 1 3/4” to 5”. Each cutter is coated in blue and white for extra strength and style. They came nicely packaged for gift-giving in a clear acetate box.
My boys so were excited to give the Vanilla Sugar Cookie Mix a try. My six year old and two year old had so much fun making the dough (which you only add 1 egg and some butter to the mix).
|Working hard at unwrapping the butter.|
|Gabriel is anxiously waiting to do his part by adding the King Arthur Mix in with the butter. It was a sunny day in our kitchen.|
|Here is Gabriel's big moment to add the first addition of the King Arthur Mix.|
The hardest part for the boys was to wait while to dough chilled in the fridge.
Now for the big event --- Rolling out the two bundles of chilled dough---time to try out the new Snowflake cookie cutters.
The cookie cutters were easy to use and clean up (hand wash only). The dough was simple to work with and Oh so tasty. It was very buttery and rich with the perfect sugar cookie texture.
We all add a blast decorating the baked cookies (I will share my recipe for the sugar cookie frosting in a later blog). The glitter was beautiful and the bottles had an easy shaker top to make dispensing on top of the cookies very easy.
|Here are a few I decorated.|
The best part of the day spent making these wonderful King Arthur Cookies was the time with my boys and watching their excitement through every step.
