♡ Wine Glass Shaped Vanilla Bean Cut-out Cookies ♡

         Hey Guys! Sorry for the late post, school has been holding me back from my baking life :(. Anyways, on my moms Birthday, I decided it would be cute to make Wine Glass Shaped Cookies because she loves wine. So, I set to work! These cookies are an Amanda’s Little Bakery original! They came out so delicious and sweet. They are also PERFECT for cookie cutters! I purchased many different kinds of cookie cutters 2 weeks ago, so I’m going to be having a lot of fun with this recipe. Lets see…I got an Eiffel Tower cookie cutter, and Ice Cream Cone cookie cutter, a 3 leaf clover cookie cutter, a teapot shaped cookie cutter, and of course a wine glass shaped cookie cutter. I want to use one of them this weekend but I don’t know which cookie cutter to choose! So maybe you’ll be seeing pictures of which cookie cutter I chose to make the cookies with next week……

      These cookies are AMAZING! I really loved their sweet taste. It was not too sugary, with a hint of vanilla…just delicious. The best part is that these cookies are not as hard as a rock, they are actually soft! I made 22 cookies and they disappeared within 2 days. Everyone just loved these cookies and though they were oh-so-adorable! And the royal Icing just compliments them and makes them 500% better!!

      I PROMISE to post more often! Its just that school the next week is going to be busy. Every teacher is working harder on us because of the first SOL coming up. But once the SOL is over, they will be a little bit calmer. SO try not to be angry, I’m going to try and bake a few things this weekend so you won’t get bored. Oh how I miss baking… I can’t wait until school is over!

      I had a sleep over last weekend, and it was CRAZY! I invited 4 of my best friends over. My mom got us a 2 pound bag of Twizzlers! So instead of eating them, we had a Twizzler war. Twizzlers were flying everywhere and everyone was trying to dodge them. When my brother came down, he was immediately attacked with Twizzlers  You should’ve seen the look on his face! He was so shocked at first but grabbed a handful of Twizzlers and attacked all of us. We just couldn’t stop laughing, it was so HILARIOUS! We also had a little 3 hour “Pretty Little Liars” marathon, I just love that show! Another thing we did is that at 11;00 at night, we had a Whip Cream war. I ended up getting whip cream in my hair -___-. But everyone had so much fun and I hope to have another sleepover soon!
   

Yield; 22 Wine Glass Shaped Cookies
3 cups of flour
1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
1 teaspoon of Vanilla Bean Paste
1 cup of sugar
2 eggs
1/4 cup of butter
1 tablespoon of Vanilla extract

Royal Icing:
3 cups of powdered Sugar
6 tablespoons of water

1. Take out all of the ingredients.

2. Using a stand mixer or hand mixer, beat the butter until it is creamy.

3. Slowly add in the sugar and the eggs. Beat the mixture until it is thoroughly creamed together (about 5-10 minutes).

4. Slowly add in the flour and baking powder. Finally, add in the vanilla bean paste and vanilla extract.

5. Mix until the dough is sticky and holds together well.

6. Form the cookie dough into a ball and wrap it in plastic wrap and place it in the freezer for 2-3 hours. (I covered my hands with flour so it would be easier to handle and shape the dough into a large ball)

7. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees.

8. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper.

9. On a lightly floured surface, roll the cookie dough out until it is 1/4 inch thick

10. Using the cookie cutter of your choice, cut out the cookies and place them onto the baking sheets.

11. Bake the cookies in the oven for 9-11 minutes.

12. Once the cookies have finished baking, place them on a baking rack  to cool for 10-15 minutes.

To make the Royal Icing:

13. Using a stand mixer or hand mixer, mix together the powdered sugar and water together until it is at a creamy and dripping consistency.
14. Decorate the cookies with the frosting. This is the creative part! Have fun decorating the cookies to whatever you want  them to look like.
15. Once the frosting has hardened (10-15 minutes), ENJOY the cookies!!!!!!!!
