About this Recipe

These tender sugar cookies are great for decorating. We prefer a 3” cookie cutter, but feel free to use any of your favorite cookie cutters. We recommend refrigerating the dough for 1-2 hours to make sure the dough is easy to roll out and the cookies bake evenly. Once the cookies cool, use your creativity to decorate them any way you like!

1

Prep cookie dough

  • Pro Tip: Leave butter and eggs at room temperature for 1 hour before beginning. This will soften butter for easy mixing and ensure more even distribution of eggs in the dough.
  • In medium bowl, stir together flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda.
  • In bowl of stand mixer with paddle attachment or in large bowl with wooden spoon, combine butter and sugar; mix until creamy and well incorporated.
  • Add egg, almond extract and vanilla extract; mix well.
  • Add flour mixture; mix for 30 seconds to thoroughly blend dough.

2

Refrigerate dough

  • Divide dough in half, shape into compact discs and wrap in plastic. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours.

3

Form cookies

  • Lightly butter or spray Brava metal tray.
  • Unwrap dough disc and place onto lightly floured surface.
  • Pro Tip: Lightly flour rolling pin to prevent sticking.
  • Roll out dough to ¼-inch thickness.
  • Cut with cookie cutters and transfer to metal tray. If using 3-inch cutter, 6 cookies will fit on metal tray.

4

Preheat oven, then bake cookies

  • Select “Sugar Cookies” on your touchscreen and follow instructions.
  • Press green button to begin preheating.
  • Once Brava is preheated, slide metal tray into top shelf and press green button to begin baking.

5

Serve

  • When your food is done, transfer cookies to wire rack to cool before serving.
  • When metal tray is cool enough to handle, wipe it out before baking additional batches of cookies.
  • Any leftover cookies can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for 2–3 days.
