Dance Cookies

My little princesses have a dance recital, so I got the idea to make recital cookies for them to give their classmates on the big night!

I made soft vanilla sugar cookies, and covered them with sweet, pink marshmallow fondant. Then I made a dancer sillouhette stencil, used royal icing to create the sillouhettes on the cookies, and sprinkled each with lots of green sugar sprinkles! The cookies are soft and sweet, with a nice crunch from the sprinkles! The girls are dancing to "I'm a Believer" from "Shrek" and their costumes are green and covered with sequins, so I thought the cookies should match!

Vanilla Sugar Cookies

2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
1 1/2 cups confectioner’s sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

Heat oven to 400. Briefly sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt in a bowl and set aside. In the bowl of a standing mixer with the flat beater, blend the butter and sugar together on medium speed until fluffy. Add the egg and blend well. Mix in the vanilla extract and almond extract. Gradually blend in the flour mixture on low speed. Briefly knead the dough and roll it out 1/4-inch thick. Cut out your cookies and place one-inch apart on a good quality baking tray lined with a piece of parchment paper. Bake for 7-8 minutes.
