These are probably the most girly cookies a girl can ever give to her boyfriend! :)
My boyfriend loves sugar cookies, it’s one of his favorite cookies. And trying to be the best girlfriend that I can be, I wanted to make these cakey puffy sugar cookies for him when I first spotted them on Sing For Your Supper months ago. I don’t know why, but yesterday seemed like the perfect day to surprise him with homemade cookies. Shhh, don’t tell him but it’s actually semi-homemade, pinky promise? :)
When it comes to baking, I am an OCD control freak!! I had a bit of a hissy fit when I didn’t have those cute little measuring cups and had to use one of those liquid measuring cups…I know, call me crazy ridiculous! Sigh… and in the midst of mixing everything, I realized I didn’t have enough sugar and had to use a mixture of both white and brown sugar which actually did not turn out so bad but was still short on sugar. Also, I over-salted the cookie dough… But of course, my amazing boyfriend said they were fine and didn’t taste any hint of extra salt..I’m always my own worse critic, le sigh I guess that’s why I love him :)
By the way, how in the world do you measure salt when your salt is in a salt grinder??? I use sea salt for all my cooking and baking, is sea salt saltier than regular salt?
I am so sorry for my mini rant! Can we still be friends? :)
These cookies were actually quite yummy. I just love the texture of these types of cookies…it’s soft, fluffy, and cakey! With the frosting, it’s like eating only the tops of cupcakes!
KITCHEN TIP: After frosting the cookies, put them back in the fridge so that the frosting hardens a bit. Taste a lot better! :)
Here are a few pics from my sugar cookie baking fiasco day…
Are you an OCD control freak when you’re in baking mode too? Or is that just me??
Hope you all have much better success than I did! Happy Baking!
