We're still baking up a storm (or baking during a storm) here at the Kennedy Compound. This time it was Real Simple's Sugar Cookies. They had a few different suggestions and I decided to try one of them: Nutella Cookie Sandwiches. mmmmm.
First off, you make a flour mixture (unfortunately not pictured) and then beat unsalted butter and sugar (which went much better this time than last time).
I added an egg and vanilla, then gradually added flour until it got so thick I could barely lift the hand mixer. REEEE-DICULOUS.
Then I popped the dough into the fridge for an hour, before laying it out on a floured surface and using a cutter to make tiny little cookies. That dough went back in the fridge to get firm and then into the oven.
I cooked until the edges just started to brown...except for that poor one that didn't quite make it. Oops!
Then I spooned some Nutella into a plastic bag, snipped off the end, and squeezed about a dime-size amount into the center of a cookie, then pressed another on top to make a sandwich. Easy-peasy!
Finally, sprinkled the tops with confectioners' sugar, which frankly made them look more messy than anything else.
A nice spin on the sugar cookie, but I wish they tasted more like those golden oreos. That would be awesome.
