Supersoft Halloween Sugar Cookies!

Hello! Today I have something different for you. Many may not know that I love to bake (I hate cooking, so Simen does that). And for yule I got a Bodum food processor, so I thought I would take it for a spin by baking! And since Simen doesn't like chocolate, I decided to make something without that. I chose a sugar cookie recipe, featuring pudding powder, so I was really excited - and they turned out amazing! The recipe is from the book Love Manuela, which is only available in Norway.

You will need:
  • 230 grams softened butter (room temperature is best)
  • 230 grams powdered sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 1/4 deciliter sour cream
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sodium bicarbonate (baking soda?)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 450 grams flour
  • 50 grams vanilla pudding mix (I used 75 grams of caramel)
Take your corset off and put your apron on, and let's get started!

Process butter and powdered sugar in a food processor.
Add eggs and sour cream and mix together quickly.

Stir together baking powder, sodium bicarbonate / baking soda, salt, flour and pudding mix in another mixing bowl. Stir it into the butter and egg mixture. Knead the dough and make a big ball out of it. Cover it with plastic and put it in the fridge for at least one hour, preferably longer.

Roll out the dough with a rolling pin on a flour-covered working space. I needed A LOT of flour to do this, my dough was very sticky (might be because of the extra pudding powder). A metal scrape (I used a square metal spatula) is also very useful to gather the dough. Cut the dough into shapes, depending on what cookie cutters you have. I used halloween ones; a pumpkin, a bat and a ghost. Bake in the oven for 8-10 minutes (depending on how big they are, I did 10-12) at 180 degrees Celsius.

If you want to, you could decorate these with a light icing.
The cookies should be nice and fluffy.
We let them rest with a kitchen towel on top, until they cooled down and became slightly firmer.
They kind of taste like the vanilla muffins I usually make!
When we ate some more about 12 hours later they had the perfect soft cookie consistency.

So soft and airy! You could eat tons of these.
Which is good, cause this recipe gave me 4 trays of cookies!

So that was really successful! Not everything I bake turns out super great (plus I'm a perfectionist), so I was really happy that these turned out pretty perfect! SO worth the time and effort. Plus the shapes are incredibly adorable! Halloween every day! I really recommend this recipe. If you try it out, let me know how it went, and show me the shapes you chose by tagging me on instagram! Happy baking!
