A little light — or not so light — fun ….
My kid brother’s birthday is at the end of January and he loves Batman! He’s not really a kid anymore, but I still love the geek in him.
It was also about this time, my daughter “D” and I started binge watching The Flash on Netflix (How many weeks until season 3?! I need to see how they manage to keep Tom Cavanaugh in the cast this go-round.).
With a dad/daughter night coming up and on a bit of a lark, we decided to have a little fun and bake some DC Comics cookies (Becca was very concerned that her girls night out might be spoiled with a messy kitchen so we promised to do our best to clean up.).
Baking Batman and Flash Cookies Required Tools of the Trade
To get that accomplished, we first had to order some cookie cutters worthy of a hero from Amazon:
Because I don’t normally bake, we lifted the sugar cookie recipe right off of the packaging, the CybrTrayd cutter, I believe:
Sugar Cookie Recipe
- 1 cup butter (two sticks), softened
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1/2 teaspoon for vanilla extract
- 2 1/4 cups of all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
Heat oven to 375 degrees. Combine butter, powdered sugar and 1/2 cup sugar in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy.
Add egg and vanilla, continue beating until well mixed.
Reduce speed to low, add flour, cream of tartar and baking soda.
Beat until dough forms a ball.
Divide in half, roll out on floured board and cut with your cookie cutter.Bake 7-9 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.
How Did The Flash and Batman Cookies Turn Out?
So, with the release of the Lego Batman Movie, I fully intend to use these bad boys again for the watch party.
