Easy No- Chill Sugar Emoji Cookies!

I have a 9-year-old that is completely obsessed with Emojis. I mean OBSESSED. She wants an emoji-themed party this year. I figured that I would give it a go and make emoji cookies, so that when the time came, I knew if I could do it or not for her party. These sugar cookies are no chill and yield about 30-36 cookies, depending on how big you cut them. 
For the ingredients:
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup unsalted butter at room temp
  •  2 teaspoons vanilla 
  • 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour 
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder 
  • & 1 teaspoon salt
  1. Preheat oven to 400* and in a mixing bowl, beat sugar and butter until fluffy. Now beat in your egg and vanilla. 
  2. Grab another mixing bowl and mix baking powder, flour and salt. 
  3. Mix in with your hands (I find this to be easier) one cup of butter/sugar  mixture at a time into the flour mixture until combined and dough-like. 
  4. Roll into two balls and on a floured surface roll with a pin and cut with your cookie cutters. I find it easier to put flour on the cutter to get it to not stick as much.
  5. Place on a parchment paper lined baking pan 1 inch apart and bake 6-7 minutes.
  6. Let cool and then add icing. Enjoy!

For the royal icing:
  • Food coloring of choice.
  • 1lb powdered sugar
  • 6 Tablespoons Milk
  • 6 Tablespoons Light Corn Syrup
  • 1 Tsp Vanilla
  1. Combine sugar and milk until smooth, stir corn syrup and vanilla. Divide into bowls and add food coloring. 
  2. To make it thick enough to pipe, add more sugar. 
  3. I found this glaze dries shiny and pretty! Pipe the sides of the cookie and then add the glaze in the center to avoid spilling over. Let the cookies dry 2 hours before you pipe the tops. ENJOY!

These cookies are not perfect, but they are fun and cute and they are delicious!
