C is for cookie

My friend Matt used to host an Anti-Valentines Day party every year.  One year, he even managed to find little candy conversation hearts with nastygram messages on them.  Stuff like “No Way” and “Fuck off,” if memory serves.  Anyway, I made my own cookies this year to honor that tradition.  Ok, I made some generic nice-nice cookies, too, just cause I’m not _all_ crotchety.  Wow, I really wish I could rotate these images now.  Oh well.  The “anti” ones say jerk, blow me, u suck, psycho, /fail, srsly, and lurk much?  The as-normal-as-you’re-likely-to-get-from-me ones say lolz and ohai.  One cookie is plaid.  Ish. Recipe follows.

No-chill Cutout Sugar Cookies

This is a nice sugar cookie which doesn’t require that you chill the dough before you roll it out. We recommend you roll it out between two sheets of waxed paper to prevent sticking.

Makes about 24

1 cup butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 teaspoons baking powder
3 cups all-purpose flour

Preheat oven to 375°F. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar with an electric mixer. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Add baking powder and flour one cup at a time, mixing after each addition. Dough will be stiff. Do not chill dough. Divide dough in half. Roll each half about 1/8 inch thick. Dip cutters into flour before each use. Bake cookies on ungreased cookie sheet on middle rack of oven for 8-12 minutes, or until cookies are lightly browned.
