Einfaches Sugar Cookies Rezept

Simple and delicious sugar cookies recipe - 3-2-1 shortcrust pastry

Dive into the enticing world of Sugar Cookies!

Hey, welcome to a sweet adventure into the world of Sugar Cookies! They are already popular in America, England and Australia and now we would like to bring them to Switzerland as well, because we still see far too few Sugar Cookies creations and would like to change that with our baking ingredients and baking accessories.

What are Sugar Cookies? Well, they are characterized by their crumbly texture and sweet touch that make them simply irresistible. The main ingredients are butter, sugar, flour and eggs, but the variations are endless. A simple recipe is the 3-2-1 shortcrust biscuits. Flour, butter, sugar and egg are added to the dough. This in the ratio 3-2-1. So 3 parts flour, 2 parts butter and 1 part sugar.

Sugar cookies can be decorated in different ways. In America and England it is a trend to decorate sugar cookies with royal icing - a powdered sugar icing that conjures up stunning designs on the cookies. The artworks are so beautiful it's almost a shame to eat them!

Here are examples of sugar cookies decorated with royal icing.

But that is not all! Another trend has developed in Australia, where sugar cookies are covered with fondant. There a design is stamped onto the fondant and then glued onto the cookie with edible glue. The results are simply stunning!

Here you can see some pictures with fondant:
