Emily Bakes: Autumn Sugar Cookies
by: Emily, age 10
Hello. Mama said I could share my tips on decorating my favorite sugar cookies. I also think she should let me use the oven all by myself, but she said “no”. Sometimes she is bossy. Anyway, every Fall I make pretty sugar cookies and cut them out with my special cookie cutters. These are easy and fun for kids to make. I make semi-homemade sugar cookies. Mama buys a dry sugar cookie mix for me and I add the eggs and butter all by myself.
Here’s me, about to mix my dough. I like to hum when I mix.
I mix it and it looks like this when I am done. You don’t want it too wet or mushy so you can cut them out of the dough ok?
I sprinkle flour on the counter top and then I roll the dough….
Now I cut out the cookies with my pretty cookie cutters, like this:
Bake, bake, bake according to the instructions on the sugar cookie recipe. I’m not allowed to heat the oven yet, an adult does it. Maybe next year. I got this yummy whipped cream cheese frosting to put on the tops of my cookies after they have cooled.
I like to eat it right out of the container with my fingers.
Mama say’s “don’t make a mess Emmy” but I just roll my eyes at her. I got all of these cool sprinkles to add to my cookies. How fun are these?
Yay! Now for the last step: decorate your cookies with sprinkles.
Different Autumn sprinkles to choose from.
These are fun and easy for kids.
Thank you for reading my sugar cookie recipe. I have other yummy, kid-friendly recipes that I’ll be publishing here occasionally, as long as my homework is done.
