Brioche and Cookies!

FINALLY! I got away from the cupcakes!!
Today I decided to NOT bake cupcakes..but instead to make my favorite...
                                                      Parisian Brioche!

Amazing.  Buttery/Eggy Good-ness....
Tomorrow morning is going to be DELISH French Toast!! Perfect.

Also--in getting ready for the Big Game tomorrow I wanted to make some cookies.
But, I was torn..

Make Steelers Cookies?..

Or Packers Cookies?

Personally, I'm cheering for the Packers! C'mon Aaron Rogers!!!
But in all fairness, I decided to stick with regular Football Cookies..

This is the BEST sugar cookie recipe you can find--and Icing the dries nice and shiney...

Best Sugar Cookies::

1 1/2 cups Powdered Sugar
1 cup Butter-room temp.
1  Egg
1 tsp. Vanilla
1/2 tsp. Almond Extract
2 1/2 All Purpose Flour
1 tsp. Baking Soda
1 tsp. Cream of Tartar

Beat the powdered sugar and butter. Scrape down the bowl and add the egg.  Beat and scrape down the bowl again. Add the vanilla and almond extracts.  In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients. Then add to the wet mixture.
Once combined,  sprinkle/dust counter with  more powdered sugar. Roll out cookie dough but keep about 1/2" thickness. Cut out in whatever shape you like.   Continue until all the dough is used.
Bake at 350 degrees for 6-10 mins (depending on your oven).

Icing recipe::
  (this only make enough to coat 5 cookies..)
1 cup Powdered Sugar
2 tsp. Milk
2 tsp. Corn Syrup
1/4 tsp. Almond Extract

Combine.. add food coloring if you would like to decorate. But if you are adding colors on top of colors, make sure you let the first color dry till you can touch it.

Anyway-- I hope you all enjoy Super Bowl Sunday!! Let me know if you try the cookies! Delish!
