My 1st homemade sugar cookies


my baking assistant


Hari ini my son requested soup then my daughter requested nak tak nak..kena lah rajin kan diri buatlah untuk diaorang..kesian kan...tak sampai hati.

Punyelah excited...masing-masing volunteer nak tolong mama heheheh

Alhamdulillah menjadi jugak resepi search kat googles...mudah dan senang.


Vanilla sugar cookies
(200 grams) of sugar(OR 100 grams sugar and 100 grams of confectioners sugar)
2 large eggs.
1 tsp of vanilla.
(450 grams) of all-purpose flour, sifted
(200 grams) of unsalted butter, diced
Extra flour for kneading and rolling.

ROYAL ICING RECIPE (from Kareen Cookies)
Basically, you need Royal icing (RI) to decorate the sugar cookies. Here’s the recipe that I used, from the book above.
Royal icing using meringue powder
4 cups icing sugar (sifted)
3 tablespoon meringue powder
6 tablespoon water ( I added a few tablespoon more, coz it was still too thick)
optional – 2 tablespoon lemon or 2 teaspoon vanilla extract.
Combine all, beat on medium speed for 5 minutes. Once ready, cover or store in airtight container.

It is quite difficult to say exactly how many tablespoon of water you need coz the consistency depends on the weather or our kitchen temperature. To make the outline, the RI have to be a bit thick, this acts like a dam to hold the flood icing. For the flood icing (or flow icing) the consistency is similar to a heavy cream. It shouldn’t be too thin like water or too thick that it won’t flow to fill up the cookies. To make the flood icing, just add double the amount of water and test as you go.

U can used this

2 white eggs
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
400-500gm icing sugar
1-2 teaspoon lemon
few drops of water
