Sugar Cookie Desserts is one of the most popular holiday treats enjoyed by children and adults alike. These delicious treats are also a favorite for those who have diabetes or have had their insulin dosage reduced. The cookie dough comes straight from the freezer but is cut into cookies after it has cooled. They are usually covered with a smooth sugar glaze, such as royal icing, that makes them look like tiny cakes.
Preparing Sugar Cookie Desserts
Making your own sugar cookie cake can be very rewarding, especially when it tastes so good and is made by someone you know. Instructions for making a Sugar Cookie are not difficult to follow, even for a first time chef. If you find that the recipe doesn’t taste right to you, simply take it back out and try again. Variations on this original recipe include adding nuts, raisins, or dried fruits. You can also substitute vanilla frosting for the more traditional fondant or choose to use a different type of chocolate for a different flavor.
Sugar cookies can be served plain or with a chocolate glaze, glazed and sometimes with a variety of toppings. A popular choice is to make Peppermint Puff Cupcakes. You will need a round plastic zip-top bag, a sauce pan, some pans and toothpicks. Here is how to make your own Sugar Cookie Dessert:
For starters, you should get a good sugar cookie cake mix, preferably one that is very sweet but not overwhelming in terms of taste. Mix in your powdered sugar and oats. Let the mix to cool off for a few minutes and then add your frosting of choice. If you want to add peppermint puffs to your dessert, mix in half a teaspoon of peppermint extract with the mix. Drop the mixture into your pan and turn the oven on for about one hour to make sure the cake is done.
Decorate Sugar Cookie Dessert
Now, it’s time to decorate your Sugar Cookie Dessert! The most popular way is to add dried fruits (currants and blueberries work well) and chocolate chips, but you can also add other sweeteners to the mix. If you prefer sugar cookie cakes with no frosting, you can drizzle some vanilla frosting over the top before serving. It will give your dessert a nice, smooth appearance, and make it look like it was put together the day you got home from work.
Another option is to use an old-fashioned springform pan. First, line up your sugar cookie mix so that it looks neat and tidy. Next, place your prepared springform pan on the bottom rack of your refrigerator. You can use the remaining space to store other things that are not used in your desserts.
Finish Off Your Sugar Cookie Dessert
To finish off your Sugar Cookie Dessert, you can sprinkle your prepared frosting over it before serving. Be sure to use the heavy cream or powdered sugar and not regular powdered sugar. You don’t want your guests to be able to lick their cup of tea from your Sugar Cookie Cake without scraping it off with their teeth!
That’s all there is to having a great Sugar Cookie Dessert. Just line your pan, add your prepared decorations, and frost it in accordance with your decorating theme. Sprinkle your unsweetened whipped cream over the top. Cover the sugar cookie cake with your special frosting and place in the refrigerator until it is time to serve. When guests come, they can help themselves to your Sugar Cookie Dessert!
Sugar Cookie Desserts can also be given as gifts. Your Sugar Cookie Mix will work wonders when you are giving it as a gift. You can find packages of both the powdered sugar and heavy cream available at most dollar stores. Package them together, seal the packages, and add some colorful and flavored sprinkles to each box. You’ll be creating a cookie cake that every child loves!
If you like to give gift baskets, you can save money by purchasing Sugar Cookie Dessert Baskets instead. Just open up the packages, add your choice of frosting and fillings, and your gift is ready to go. These baskets are available at most dollar stores. They can be customized with your choice of decorations as well as your special message for the lucky recipient.
For those who do not have a Sugar Cookie Dessert Basket in their cupboard, you can always substitute your sugar cookie mix for a premade sugar cookie cake. Simply use a 9-inch springform pan and your favorite frosting, and you’re done! This makes a wonderful Easter or birthday surprise.
