Looking for a special homemade treat for Dad? I will teach you how to make Father’s Day cookies that he will love!
This topic is something I enjoy a lot. As a stay home mom, my dream since the beginning of this new adventure has been to be able to teach my child all I know about pastries, food and cooking! With Father’s Day around the corner I thought an easy recipe for sugar cookies could help your little ones to surprise their dads on this special day!
What will you need to make your Father’s Day Cookies:
For the Cookies:
- 3 cups All Purpose Flour
- 3/4 Baking Powder
- 1 cup of unsalted butter
- 1 cup of white sugar
- 1 egg
- Powdered Sugar
For the Decorations:
- Sprinkles (any kind you can find at Walmart, Target, Amazon
- Fondant (Use your favorite color. You can also find at Walmart or Amazon)
- Cookie Cutters (My favorites are from Amazon and Michaels)
- In a bowl sift together flour, baking powder and salt
- In another bowl mix softened butter, sugar and with a mixer until they become one.
- Add 1 egg to the bowl of the sugar and butter and start to mix on low speed then start to gradually mix in the flour.
- When you form a dough, divide it in half and wrap it in waxed paper.
- Refrigerate for an hour.
- Preheat your oven to 375 degrees
- Sprinkle your countertop with powdered sugar so that you can roll out your dough.
- Use your favorite cookie cutter to start cutting your cookies
- After you cut your cookie shapes, refrigerate for 15 min.
- Bake the cookies for 10 minutes. Always use the help of an adult kids! 😉
- While waiting for the cookies to be ready and then to get cold after taking them from the oven, repeat step 7 but with your fondant.
- Cut the fondant in the same shape as your cookies.
- Paste the fondant over the cookies with a little brush of water.
- Put the fondant over the cookie and then decorate!
You can put your Father’s Day cookies in a little box with a card and voilá the perfect (and most delicious) gift for dad!
I hope you enjoy this recipe with your little ones. I can’t wait to try it with my son when the time comes, he’s only an infant but it won’t be long!
