Sometimes spicing up something doesn’t always turn out the way you expected and I can say that because my idea of giving the Honest Company’s holiday gift Organic Sugar Cookies a spice up, did not turn out at all like how I imaged.
WARNING: Results may vary. Here is my recipe story…
I was excited to see this extra surprise in my Honest Company package… I haven’t ordered in awhile so I am sure that many of you actually got this earlier. Now, I am geared up to start baking. Honestly, I don’t remember ever baking cookies, I remember others baking me cookies but to roll the cookie dough out and get my hands dirty was not a familiar memory of mine. Who knows maybe when I was younger I was a baking cookie expert… now… well let’s say I am at the baby stage of actually baking cookies. Not the dough, cut, place on a pan then oven kind of dough but they homemade how grandma makes it kind of dough.
What You’ll Need:
Organic Sugar Cookie Mix
6 TBSP Unsalted Butter Softened
Pour the Cookie Mix into the bowl.
Add the 6 tbsp of butter into the bowl.
Use the fork to mix the two together until you have a cornmeal texture or breadcrumb texture.
Next add your egg.
Mix it together with the whisk.
Use your hands to make it into a smooth ball shape.
Next, I added the cinnamon heart powder that I created by blending it.
Next, I mixed the dough with the cinnamon heart powder together with my hands. Once done, I made it into a ball again then flattened it into a disk shape, wrapped it in plastic wrap and placed it in the fridge for 30 minutes.
After the 30 minutes are done, place the dough onto a floured surface.
Roll out the dough
Use the cookie cutter. I used hearts and snowflake shapes (Yes you heard that right). Then buttered and floured the pan before placing the shaped cookies on the pan. The only thing left to do is to put the pan into the oven at 350 F for 14 -16 minutes.
After it’s done, let it cool and enjoy!
What should have happened next was gorgeous red cookies but mine however burned. Remember this was my first time making this. Yours, however, will end up being fantastic. Mine is still yummy if you don’t open your eye to the burnt bottom. What I learned about this process is that maybe I should not leave the kitchen and rely solely on a slightly broken timer. Advice for future Shanice baking cookies? Keep an eye out on your cookies. Grab a seat and don’t take your eyes off those bad boys.
