KFB Foodie Talk: How to make Chewy sugar cookies

 For
our newbies, the KFB foodie talk column – handled by Dobby of Dobbysignature – is basically for ladies and
‘guys’ that are interested in learning how to cook better ;).
 
 
The recipe for today is the tasty sugar cookies. I recall the very first time i made these, all i needed was a nod of
approval from my brothers who are my greatest critiques to know it
tasted “fantabulously” good :D. 
To give you a hint, the light one tastes
exactly like the popular Danish cookies and the dark one tastes like
the chocolate flavored version of danish cookies.
Ingredients:::
• 3 Cups Flour
• 2 tbsp. cocoa powder- For 1 part
• 1 cup butter
• 1½ cup granulated sugar
• ½ tsp. Salt
• 2 eggs
• 2 tsp. Vanilla flavor
Directions:::
Step 1:
Place the butter in a medium bowl, add the granulated sugar and beat
till you can’t feel the sugar grit anymore and the butter becomes pale
and fluffy
Step 2: Whisk
the eggs and add to the beaten sugar and butter, add the salt, mix to
incorporate. Add the vanilla and mix. At this point if you want two
colors and flavors, divide the batter into two. Add the cocoa powder
into one part and leave the other part plain. 
Step 3:
Divide the flour and gently fold it into both parts. Mix till you get a
non-sticky dough (The mixing bowl should be clean). Flatten the dough
on a working surface with a rolling pin. With your cookie cutter, cut
out the various shapes you want . Place the cookie cuts on a lightly
greased pan. you could also use parchment paper to line the baking
sheet. 
Step 4: Bake in a Pre-heated oven or Pot (Using the pot baking method)
for 35-45 mins. Once done, leave to cool completely on a wire rack
before icing. For this set of Christmas cookies, i used light royal
icing
Ta da!
