Sugar Cookies For Decorating


- 1 lb. margarine, room temp

- 3 c. granulated sugar

- 4 large eggs

- 1 T. vanilla

- 1 t. orange emulsion* or 1 T. orange zest

- 7 c. flour

- 2 t. baking powder

-1 t. salt

1. Cream Margarine and sugar. Add eggs and flavorings and mix well.

2. Stir in flour mixed with baking powder and salt. CHILL at least
2 hours I recommend overnight.

3. Bake cookies at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes but you all know
the time really depends on your oven. In my oven it takes about 13 minutes.

Also this dough will keep well in a covered container in the refrigerator
for a couple of weeks!

* I used this orange bakery emulsion from Lorann Professional Kitchen.
An emulsion is a flavoring supply that is preferred over extracts because
emulsions have a more potent, robust flavor, that won't bake out when
exposed to heat and they are also alcohol free. If you don't have an
orange emulsion use the orange zest which i love because of the slight
orange flakes that you can see in the cookies but instead of buying
flavorings now i suggest you look for emulsions. Enjoy!

Sorry for not updating the blog, this way I'll never get anywhere with my blog.
I've been busy with a couple of things, baby sitting, trying to enroll in some
city college classes, and baking. Unfortunately I didn't take pictures of anything
I made a huge sleeping beauty tres leches cake with a delicious coconut-
pineapple filling, 3 dozen baby shower cookies, and an artistic mexican gelatin
but I've been so rushed lately with everything that I didn't even have a couple
of minutes to take pictures but as I promised I will still be posting the perfect
sugar cookie recipe which is great for party favors it makes at least 60 delicious

After A Much Needed Vacation I am Back to Baking

I went to San Francisco for the weekend with some friends and it was

just the breather that I needed. I had so much fun, I can't wait to go back.


 I'm a fan of everything oriental so of course I had to visit China Town
and last but definitely not least eat sushi in Japan Town which was 
heaven for me, it's my dream to one day stay a whole year in Japan.

And next time I'm in San Francisco I'm definitely staying in HotelTomo!
right across the Japan Mall.

I am definitely getting back to baking, 
I'll be posting the perfect decorating sugar cookie
recipe for you guys on my next post.
