Go ahead and say it- I WENT OVERBOARD. I let boredom get the best of me and I wanted to out-do myself. I just couldn't help it though- the holiday season puts me in such a holiday mood! So I ended up taking over the entire living room (and part of the kitchen) with all of these sugar cookies (my third try at sugar cookies). My roommate definitely thought I was nuts.
Step one: Make the icing. Note the (once again early present) Martha Stewart Sifter – YEAH SON, you heard me, I got a Martha sifter!
Look at the gleam and intricacy on this bad boy. You don't get any more advanced in terms of sifters than this.
Gross part- egg whites. I have no idea how but this urine-looking liquid somehow turns into white fluffy fluff-ness (I must give credit to my $7 hand mixer though).
And here's a photo shoot of my lovely mixer (seriously one of the best investments I made).
No images of my ramekins full or coloring icing, nor no images of me decorating these cookies (mostly because I stayed up to the wee hours of night to finish them).
The following is yet another photo shoot of the little buggers responsible for my future-carpal-tunnel-syndrome.
Oh-em-gee. Yes, I think I'm weird too. The following are photos of me now organizing them to place in the Christmas-cookie box... exciting...
2 egg whites
2 cups powdered sugar
