Sugar cookie recipe

2 cups butter
2 cups sugar
5 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
4 eggs

Pre-heat oven 400F. (Ovens vary, adjust accordingly.)
Mix dry ingredients together and set aside.
Lightly cream butter and sugar (just until incorporated.)
Beat in eggs, one at a time.
Add in dry ingredients 1/2 cup at a time.
Dough can be used immediately or refridgerated until needed.
I recommend baking the cookies a day before you decorate them.

I used Wilton's meringue powder
and the recipe on the back of the package.

4 cups powdered sugar
3 tbs meringue powder
5 tbs water

I don't have a stand mixer, so I had to mix all ingredients with a
hand mixer on high for 10-12 minutes until stiff peaks formed.

These cookies are my first attempt at homemade sugar cookies
and royal icing. I'm sure I've made sugar cookies before but I've
never made or worked with royal icing.

All mixed by hand, no stand mixer!
It was very difficult and a lot of hard work!

My first pecan pie (unbaked in the picture below)
for Thanksgiving, 2015. I used the recipe on
the back of the Karo syrup bottle.

Even though I thought it looks a bit over-done,
it actually turned out fantastic.

Just like pecan but with walnuts.
