This Easter the bunny brought my daughter Brooke a cook book called, Disney Princess Cupcakes and more. It's such a cute book with simple recipes that little kids could help with. Now, most of the book is made with pre-made dough and other items, but if you wanted you could make it your own. Brooke had me read the book to her word for word and asked me if we could make all the recipes out of the book. I said, "YES!", So now I will have my hands full each week. I can't wait though because making these cookies were so much fun. If you have a little girl who loves the Princess, this is a fun project that would give you that much needed Mother/Daughter time. Have fun Baking and May all Your "baking" Dreams Come True!
What Ya'll Need:
1 16 oz. pkg. Pillsbury refrigerated sugar cookie dough
1/4-1/2 cups of All purpose flour
48 pretzel sticks (2 1/2 inches long)
*Colored decorating icing, Colored sugar or Edible Glitter and Gold/Silver Dragess
Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, break up cookie dough. Stir or knead in 1/4 cup of the flour until well blended. Sprinkle flour onto work surface; coat all sides of dough with flour. With rolling pin, roll out dough 1/8 inch thick, adding additional flour as needed to prevent sticking. Use a 2-inch star-shaped cookie cutter, cut out stars. *Place pretzels 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Then gently place a star on top of pretzel. Bake 7 to 9 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks. Cool completely, about 15 minutes. Spread icing on to cookies, sprinkle with sugar and place dragess in points of stars. Let stand until set and have a magical treat!
**Cooking Tip: We homemade the color sugar. I found a pin on Pinterest. The site was Mom on Timout I followed the directions and worked perfect(I used granulated sugar) Also when placing the stars on the pretzel line the cut at bottom on pretzel then place cookie you want it to be even on pretzel so star is straight.
