Today is Sugar Cookie Day

We love to bake sugar cookies around here. 
Cookies in general are gobbled up faster than Cookie Monster on a sugar high.  
I do have go to recipes for sugar cookies and this is one of them.  
The main change here is using Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk. 

Oh, so very YUMMY!

Eagle Brand Cut out Cookies

3 1/2 C flour
2t baking powder 
1/4 t salt
1 14 oz sweetened condensed milk
3/4 C butter
2 eggs
1T flavoring (either almond, vanilla or lemon)

Combine flour baking powder and salt. Beat milk, butter, eggs and flavoring in bowl for one minute.  Add flour mixture and combine.  Divide into thirds and chill for two hours.

Pre heat oven to 350.  Roll out dough onto lightly floured surface. Cut into shapes. Bake 9 to 11 minutes

I have sound something interesting I want to try EDIBLE Images over on Etsy.
Has anyone played around with these before?

Powder Sugar Glaze
2 C sifted powdered sugar
1/2 t flavoring (to match the cookie flavor you made)
2 T Milk
Tint with food coloring

Mix to a glaze consistency.  Apply to cooled cookies and let dry.

Here is  a link back to another sugar cookie I have shown in the past.

May your Sugar Cookie Day Be sprinkled with Love and Laughter;)
God Bless.
