Sugar Cookies with royal icing
Hello peoples...been a long time.Have been busy and basically fighting attacks of laziness that lasts for more than 24 hours 
My lil girl has been after me to bake some cookies,and sugar cookies at that.Well seriously I wasnt in mood for cookies..but couldnt handlethe pouty face for more than 2 minutes...hence agreed.
Must say ,it was v.easy...the house smelt divine and the cookies got polished off[thankfully i halved the dough and kept one portion in the fridge  ..I got this amazing recipe from Pininterest, .
Am copy pasting the recipe as is....i made it just the way it has been explained.
3 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup butter, unsalted, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
1 egg, large, lightly beaten
1 TBS milk
2 TBS powdered sugar
In a medium-sized bowl whisk together:
3 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
Using a stand mixer, whisk until creamed (light yellow in color):
1 cup butter, unsalted , softened
1 cup granulated sugar
Add to the butter mixture and whisk in:
1 egg, large , lightly beaten
1 TBS milk
Put mixer on low speed, gradually add flour mixture, and beat until dough pulls away from the side of the bowl.
Divide the dough in half, wrap in parchment paper and refrigerate for 2 hours.
Preheat oven to 375ºF.
Sprinkle surface where you will roll out the dough:
2 TBS powdered sugar
Remove one wrapped pack of dough from the refrigerator at a time, sprinkle rolling pin with powdered sugar and roll out dough to 1/4-inch thick.
Move the dough around and check underneath frequently to make sure it is not sticking. If dough has warmed during rolling, place cold cookie sheet on top for 10 mins. to chill.
Cut into desired shape, place at least 1-inch apart on greased baking sheet, parchment paper or silicone baking mat, and bake for 7 to 9 minutes or until cookies are just beginning to turn brown around the edges.
Let sit on baking sheet for 2 minutes after removal from oven and then move to a cooling rack.
Serve as is or ice as desired. Store in airtight container for up to 1 week.
The Icing recipe is a mix from many sites.I jus added what I felt would work 
1 cup icing sugar
3 tsp milk [or more]
2 tsp corn syrup [or more]
mix all of these without lumps.divide and add food colour and essence if needed.
Ice designs on the cooled cookies.wait for it to set before you serve it.
