Baked with love by the B cups...

I've whipped up something really special for your Monday fix of complex sugars and heavy on tradition. See I'm big on tradition-take for example Christmas morning has always gone hand in hand with bloody mary's with my fam, or this German dish (fat noodles) passed down through many generations MUST be served with watermelon or it just isn't right. A newer tradition (this being year #2-and I've threatened her I'm gonna bake her birthday-suit cookies until the day I bit the big one) is baking a homemade batch of sugar cookies for my gal, Nicki's, birthday. Now these my friends are not your run-0-the-mill baked goods, and you certainly aren't going to see these at the St. Mary's bazaar! Consider yourself lucky since you're going to be privy to a glimpse at what happens behind closed kitchen doors. Here is the recipe:

34b Cup's Infamous Cut Out Sugar Cookies

3/4 C Butter
1 C Sugar
2 Eggs
1/2 t Vanilla
Mix above and then add:
2 1/2 C Flour
1 t Baking Powder
1 t Salt

Chill dough 1 hour or overnight. Roll out dough until 1/8 - 1/4" thick. Select desired cookie cutter and firmly press into dough. This is the "cutter" I always use for Miss Nicki's birthday. Bake at 400 for 6-8 minutes or until golden brown like "buns in the oven". I whip up a simple frosting using a random amount of butter, vanilla, milk and powdered sugar. Frost those babies and decorate with your desired amount of "sprinkles". Check out the final product here (rated R-not X-just R for sexual content). Where might you ask can someone find a cookie cutter of this nature? Who knows-my MOM gave me mine (don't you dare act surprised). Birds of a feather my friends, birds of a feather...

Speaking of birdies-"t" that ball down cuz we tomorrow we hit the links.

Now those are my kinda cookies! And shouldn't I be near the head of the line for some baked goods...I'm sure I taught you some baking skills along the road some where--oh wait maybe that was drinking skills. Either way--pass some love this way, you know the date.

Oh my...what have you started? You may have to hang up your fabric and draft paper in exchange for a new oven.
