Elegant Cookies with Fondant

Fondant is a very versatile decorating media! In this hands on class, we’ll explore some of my favorite techniques to create elegant cookies. We’ll use various tools and molds to create lovely textures and designs. We’ll cover some lace effects such as brush embroidery, plaques, and ruffles. Finally, we’ll create an adorable mini cookie bouquet. A little scared of fondant taste? We’ll be sampling, and the results are delicious! All of the supplies are included. You’ll complete at least a half dozen decorated cookies. $110,  limited to 15 students.

Buttery Sugar Cookie Recipe

 

Buttery Sugar Cookie

After trying over 50 sugar cookie recipes, I found this one to be my absolute favorite. I love this basic sugar cookie recipe for many reasons. It taste great. It is simple with few ingredients. It will maintain it’s shape which makes the dough ideal for molding. You must chill the dough for a couple hours (or overnight is great) or it will be very sticky to work with.

  • 1 cup Butter, softened
  •  1 3-ounce package cream cheese, softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 cups all purpose flour

In large mixer bowl combine all cookie ingredients, except flour. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often until creamy. Reduce speed to low; add flour. Beat, scraping bowl often, until well mixed. Divide dough into 2 equal portions; wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate unitl firm (at least 2 hours). Heat oven to 350°. Roll out on lightly floured surface OR parchment paper. Bake for 7 to 10 minutes or until edges are very lightly browned. Remove from cookie sheets; cool completely.
