I don’t like to talk about politics. I think it’s a very sensitive area and can quickly escalate. However, with the recent events that have occurred with the LGBTQ community, I only saw it fitting to show my support for my friends.
Here is my two cents on the matter: Love is love. Color, age and gender are labels we’ve placed on each other to categorize everyone in cute little compartments in our minds. The reality, people don’t fit in compartments because everyone is different. I stand with my LGBTQ friends and I love them all for who they are not who they chose to love.
With that being said, I want to share with everyone this delicious rainbow sugar cookie recipe that I hope inspires you to stand up for basic human rights we all deserve to have.
- 1/4 cup of butter
- 1/4 cup of sugar
- half an egg
- To half an egg, beat the egg lightly, weigh the egg and half the weight)
- 1/4 tsp. of vanilla extract
- 1 cup of all-purpose flour
- 1/8 tsp. of baking soda
- Pinch of salt
- An assortment of food dye colors
- In a small bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder and salt
- Cream together the butter and sugar until well beaten.
- Add egg and vanilla extract and beat until smooth.
- Slowly add the flour mixture until well combined. Do not overbeat!
- Divide your dough into five sections for the rainbow colors (or any colors you want).
- Using gloves to avoid staining your hands, dye each section and wrap in plastic wrap.
- Place all five sections in the fridge until they firm up—about an hour.
- Now, roll each section flat in a rectangle shape about 1/8 mm thick.
- Starting with red, stack each color until you have a stack of rainbow dough.
- Slice the dough horizontally in half.
- Roll one half until you have a long cylinder shape. Cut the other half in half again and roll them out to make thinner cylinders.
- Take a knife and slice the cylinders so you have a variety of big and little circles.
- Using water, glue two little circles to the ends of a big circle to form a Mickey outline.
- Repeat until you run out of dough.
- Place your cookies in a baking sheet and back for 7-10 mins. You want them just baked not brown on the sides. Do not overbake! Once you pass the seven-minute mark, keep a watchful eye on the cookies.
- You’re done! Enjoy your cookies.
This is my ride or die sugar cookie recipe. I adapted it from Kawaii’s Sweet World Watermelon Cookies recipe. It always holds its shape and they taste amazing. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.
