What Is Sugar Cookie?
Sugar Cookies are made using flour, sugar, vanilla, butter, eggs, baking powder and baking soda as basic ingredients, depending on the type of sugar used. Sugar cookies have been created for generations and have a simple, traditional flavor. Sugar cookies grew in popularity and availability as sugar became more readily available.
Sugar cookies can be hand-formed, dropped, or rolled out and cut into shapes. Additional sugar, frosting, sprinkles, or a mix of these are typically used to adorn them. A cookie cutter may be used to cut decorative shapes and figures into the rolled-out dough.
How Do You Keep Sugar Cookies From Sticking?
You can use parchment paper or baking mats. Nonstick spray or butter on baking sheets creates an excessively oily base, which distributes cookies. One of the best baking mats is silicone baking mats, which hold the base of your cookie dough and prevent it from spreading too much.
