Funfetti Angel Sugar Cookies

Monday, May 1, 2017
Here is a melt-in-your-mouth sugar cookie called Angel Sugar cookies and rightly so they are delicious perfect in every way, and today we dressed them by adding funfetti in the dough.


These cookies have been around forever and easier than the cut and bake because they're a drop-and-roll cookie.


I love the old-fashioned easy cookies as the day isn't taken up by cutting, rolling, and icing all day.


These sweet delicate yet crumbly butter sugar cookies are just perfect with a cup of afternoon tea and a great comfort cookie.


If you were looking for a bakery-quality tasting sugar cookie, then you're going to love these and of course, you can just add nothing to the dough and frost them if you prefer.

Other Cookie Love



Sugar cookies are a classic favorite and this is a simple pantry ingredient recipe.


I find these perfect for fussy guests as you can change the toppings and fruits much easier plus they can be made to fit the theme of your party or holiday.


You can also use other favorite cookie recipes that worked well and we have tried: Snickerdoodles, Shortbread  Chocolate Chip Cookies, and also Chocolate Cake Mix Cookie dough any round cookies will work that are sturdy even prepackaged store-bought sugar cookies.


These delicious angel cookies can be frosted and decorated for Patriotic holidays like Memorial Day, the 4th of July, and Veterans Day using red, white, and blue fruits, or any colors like Christmas to match the holiday themes just by adding coordinating sprinkles, tinted cookie dough or even tinted frostings!

This is an easy drop sugar cookie, delicate and rich in buttery tasting deliciousness. The cookies are not like the cutout version and more crumbly.

Ingredients

  • 4 cups plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 sticks of butter room temperature ( do not use cold the dough needs to be evenly blended)
  • 1 cup white sugar plus more for the top  ( or use a coordinating color for the tops of a holiday theme)

  • 1 cup vegetable or  canola oil 
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tarter
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract or other flavors like lemon, almond, orange anisette

Instructions

  1. Prepare a cookie sheet with either parchment paper or Silpat mat.
  2. Cream the butter and the sugars together until light and creamy for around 3 minutes ( must be evenly blended).
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients( flour slowly) getting everything smooth and the mixture is all one even color.
  4. Refrigerate for 1 hour or overnight. ( this keeps the dough from spreading out)
  5. Drop on a parchment-lined cookie sheet ( I use an ice cream scoop.
  6. Bake 9 to 11 minutes at 350 degrees. 
  7. Don't overbake the cookies are crumbly.
  8. Cool completely before removing from the paper cookies are very fragile and crumbly.

  • maraschino cherries
  • use colorful nuts, craisins, dried fruits, colorful candied cherries for the holiday

  • I always refrigerate the dough and preheat the oven for perfect cookies
