Toy Story Cookies: Fun Recipes

 
Toy Story: Sugar Dough Recipe
Sugar Dough Recipe

Grab your spatula, roll out your dough, and get ready to taste these 3D (for Delicious!) Toy Story-inspired treats!
 
When you’re making cutout cookies, you need dough that will hold its shape during baking, and this recipe fits the bill.

Many of the ready-made refrigerated doughs sold at grocery stores tend to spread, so if you plan to use one of them, you’ll probably need to add flour to stiffen it.

Either way, it’s always good practice to do a trial run by first baking a single cookie to see how it holds up. If the dough loses its shape, try chilling it or kneading in a bit more flour.
 
With three movies under their cowboy and space belts, everyone’s favorite Toy Story characters have taken their popularity to new generations and dimensions.

You can bake a Toy Story-inspired adventure of your own. Start with a batch of sugar cookie dough, add colored icing and assorted candies, and you’ve got the makings for a trio of Toy treats: Woody’s Cowboy Boot cookies and Sweet Three-eyed Aliens

Ingredients:

335g flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
11 tablespoons butter,  softened
85g granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Method:

1. Sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt into a bowl and set aside.
2. In a large mixing bowl, beat the butter and sugar until light and well combined.
3. Add the egg and vanilla extract and beat well. Stir in the flour, a third at a time.
4. After the last addition, knead the dough briefly if needed to incorporate all of the flour.
5. The finished dough should be smooth and stiff.
6. Divide the dough into two portions, pressing each into a disk and wrapping it in plastic. Keep the dough chilled until you plan to use it.
7. When you’re ready to bake the cookies, work with one disk of dough at a time.
8. Allow the dough to set briefly at room temperature so that it softens just enough to roll it.
9. Meanwhile, heat the oven to 180 degrees and line a baking sheet with baking paper.
10. Set the dough on a flour-dusted sheet of waxed paper and roll it out to ¼-inch thickness.
11. Cut out the cookies and bake them until the edges turn a light golden brown, about 6 to 9 minutes, depending on the size.
12. Then transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool.
