Fluffy Sugar Cookie Recipe!

Hello My Beauties!

You remember those really good, extremely bad-for-you frosted cookies that you find at Kroger’s or Meijer’s? If you don’t, you obviously didn’t have a well-fullfilled childhood and you’re probably reading this with a celery stick in your mouth while running on your Bo-Flex or something like that.

Anyways a while ago I found a pretty good recipe online and since then I’ve been experimenting with different measurements to get the best results! I’d love to hear what you guys think if you end up using this recipe, so comment below Loves!

Ingredients

4 1/2 cups flour
4 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups (3 sticks) butter, at room temperature
1 1/2 cups sugar
3 eggs
5 tsp vanilla extract

Directions

First pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees. Then whisk the flour, baking powder, and salt together in a large to medium sized bowl.

Then, using a hand mixer or large-paddle mixer, blend the butter and sugar together for 3 minutes or until it’s whipped. Slowly add one egg at a time, and then finally the vanilla extract to the mix. Also, can we please address the fact that my hand mixer is from the 70’s?! I’m really surprised that it still runs, and the box has my grandmother’s handwriting on the box from when she owned it!

Then add the bowl of the dry ingredients to the mix and stir until everything has been stirred together. Afterwards, roll the cookie dough into a big ball and refrigerate it for 1 hour.

After 1 hour, take a 1/4 cup and use it to scoop out the dough. The roll it and place it on the cookie dough pan about 2-3 inches apart. Once all of the cookie has been rolled, put the sheet in the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes.

After that leave your finished cookies out to cool! I hope that you enjoyed this post, and if you do decide to follow this recipe I hope you enjoy your future cookies!

I’M BACK!

Hello My Beauties!

I’ve missed you so, so, so much during the time that I was gone. I took a well-deserved break from Youtube and this blog while I studied for finals, but now that those are over I’m back in the game!

I’m really excited to be back, and I’m filled with new ideas for my channel. But I want to be able to dictate what/when I film and upload more. I don’t want Youtube and making videos to control my life, and taking this break has kinda brought me down to Earth and I was able to reconnect with the people I love more.

So please enjoy this new video, stay tuned for more, but remember that it might not always be on a schedule. The best things in life are done without planning or expectancy, they are just created in a moment. I don’t want to expect myself to have to have make something on a deadline because then it won’t be as good as it could have been.

Anyways, enough of my rambling! Watch the video kids, and feel free to tell me what you think!

Peace, Love, and Baby Ducks,
