Pumpkin Cutouts | #TastyTuesday #Recipe Swap

Sugar cookies are really my favorite cookie to bake and create because I can really let my creativity take me in any direction. I love making sugar cookies as gifts and this year is no exception. Check out these lovely pumpkin cutouts!
Big Batch Sugar Cookies
Ingredients:
  1. 2 cups butter (4 sticks, room temperature)
  2. 2 cups sugar
  3. 2 large eggs
  4. 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  5. 6 cups of all-purpose flour
  6. 2 teaspoons baking powder
  7. 1 teaspoon salt
Method:
  • Gently mix butter and sugar, then beat until light and creamy. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Gently stir flour before measuring. Combine dry ingredients and add a cup at a time to butter mixture. Beat until completely blended.
  • Roll cookie dough between two sheets of parchment paper. Use a rolling pin with spacer rings to get perfect 1/4 inch thick layers. Continue rolling all dough between parchment paper and placing in stacks on a cookie sheet (that fits in your refrigerator or freezer).
  • Cover cookie sheet with foil. Chill dough overnight or 1 to 2 hours. Remove one sheet of dough at a time and cut into shapes.
  • Bake on baking sheet at 350 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes or just until the edges begin to slightly brown.
  • This recipe will make at least 2 dozen, 4-6 inch cookies.
Big Batch Royal Icing
Ingredients:
  1. 2 pound bag powdered sugar or 8 cups
  2. 6 tablespoons meringue powder, slightly heaping
  3. 12 warm water (add additional water 1 spoon at a time), it may take another 1/2 cup or more to get the consistency you want, if you add to much water, you can adjust with more powdered sugar.
  4. 1-2 teaspoons clear vanilla extract or other flavorings such as lemon, mint, orange or almond.
Method:
  • Put sugar and meringue powder in a large mixing bowl. Add 1/2 cup warm water, and vanilla and beat on slow to medium speed for 8-12 minutes. Beat until the icing thickens and can stand in peaks. Add more water, a little at a time and continue mixing slowly until you get the consistency you want.
  • Divide and color, fill pastry bags, or squeeze bottles and seat until ready to use. If you leave the icing uncovered, it will harden.
