Fangirls, with my recent realization of love for Pokémon, I’m surprised it took me this long to make a treat based on one of them. Sure, Poképuffs are on the horizon, but for now, we’re going to stick with sugar cookies. This is my favorite sugar cookie recipe, and I bought a rad Haunter cookie cutter from IEF Designs on Etsy. When I got it I knew what I was going to do; marbled purple sugar cookies.
For these sugar cookies you’ll need:
1 cup Butter
1 cup Sugar
1 large Egg
2 teaspoons Baking Powder
1 teaspoon Vanilla
3 cups Flour
Food Coloring (I used purple)
Before any mixing occurs, start by preheating your oven to 400* F. Then, cream the butter and sugar in a mixer. Beat in your egg and vanilla. Add your baking powder and flour, but only add one cup of flour at a time. After that, add your food coloring, which can be very stubborn. Do your best and keep mixing; marbling is easier than full on dyeing because it won’t need to be mixed perfectly.
After that, flour a hard surface (preferably a table or countertop), place a ball of the dough on it, and roll it out. It works best if your rolling pin is floured as well. If you want a faster clean up, you can put some water on the table (just a sprinkling of it), lay wax paper n top of the water (the water makes the paper stick to the table), and roll your dough on that. It’s an extra step, but helps for clean up. I rarely do it that way, but I really flour the table.
Have a little pile of flour on the side, and put your cookie cutter in it. Since this cookie cutter has a lot of small areas, it’s important to have flour in every nook and cranny; you don’t want the dough to get stuck in there. Cut your cookies and put them on cookie sheets. You don’t need to grease them for this, though some recipes require it. Decorate how you please with sprinkles.
Bake them for 5-7minutes, or until the edges are slightly browned. Let them cool, and voila! You’ve got some rad Haunter cookies! Or any sugar cookies, really. It’s a phenomenal recipe, the cookie cutter is pretty darn good, and the cookies are well worthy of any Pokémon, ghost type or otherwise. Even Brock would be proud.
