Answer by this.is.ur.answer.
This recipe makes 24 servings:

Ingredients

3 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 pinch ground cinnamon
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup white sugar
3 eggs, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Frosting:
4 cups confectioners’ sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup milk
any color food coloring (optional)

Directions

1. Sift together flour, cream of tarter, baking soda, nutmeg, and cinnamon in a bowl; set aside. Beat the butter and sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until smooth. Add the eggs one at a time, allowing each egg to blend into the butter mixture before adding the next. Beat in the vanilla with the last egg. Mix in the flour mixture until just incorporated. Cover and refrigerate dough overnight.

2. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Roll out dough on floured surface to 1/2 inch thick. Cut into shapes with Christmas cookie cutters. Place cookies 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets.

3. Bake in the preheated oven until the edges are golden, 8 to 10 minutes. If using cutters that have small appendages, such as reindeer legs, reduce the baking time or they will overcook. Remove cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.

4. Beat the butter and confectioners’ sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl, mixture will be stiff. Add the vanilla and slowly mix in the milk a little at a time until a spreading consistency is reached. Stir in food coloring, if desired. Make sure cookies are completely cool before frosting.

Does anyone have some simple recipes for a bakesale?

Question by nowisthatnecessary: Does anyone have some simple recipes for a bakesale?
In a couple of days, my club is having a bakesale. I wanted to bake something from simple, but yummy, of course. Does anyone know any simple recipes for desserts such as cookies, cupcakes, brownies, etc., other than the bagged mixes you can buy at a store?

Best answer:

Answer by bonlwick
I used to make chocolate covered pretzels for bake sales and the went like crazy. You just buy pretzel rods and dip them in chocolate. The chocolate bark stuff works best because it gets firm again. You can also add a little paraffin to the chocolate to help it get firm again. Finally, add some sprinkles if you are selling them where children will be buying. Yum!
