I purchased this Wilton cookie pan for 50% off after Valentine's Day. You didn't expect me to throw it the cupboard until next year, right?
Right! I have to test this pan to know if I will use it next year or not. And what a great test it was.
These little Valentine sugar cookies turned out great!
They even went to a bake sale at the College.
Wilton Sugar Cookies
1 c. (2 sticks) butter, softened
1 1/2 c. granulated sugar
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. almond extract
2 1/2 c. bread flour (I always replace all-purpose flour with bread flour in a cookie recipe)
1 tsp. salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly spray pan cavities with vegetable pan spray.
In large bowl, beat butter and sugar with electric mixer at medium speed until well blended. Beat in egg and extracts; mix well. Combine flour and salt; add to butter mixture. Beat until blended.
Take half of the dough out of mixing bowl and set aside. Add 11 drops of red food coloring to the remainder of the dough in the mixing bowl. Mix until evenly colored.
Press dough into cavities, filling 2/3 full (using the red dough as you wish). Bake 9-10 minutes or until light brown around edges. Cool in pan 5 minutes. Turn pan over; lightly tap pan to remove cookies. Cool completely on cooling rack.
Sprinkle with sugar if you like.
