As I mentioned a couple weeks ago, I had a little pre-Xmas shindig, prior to Xmas (duh). And for shits and giggles, I decided it just wouldn't be Xmas if my sugar cookies didn't include anatomically-correct snowmen and snowwomen.
So I busted out the cookie cutters, busted out the pseudo-rolling-pins (aka. beer bottles), and suckered my friend MC into helping out. Now, I've seen many a penis, but it's surprisingly hard (buddumm chiii) to fashion one on a snowman. So thankfully MC skillfully rolled and fashioned and fashioned and rolled several snowmen penii that were so delectably perfect that the snowwomen I'd created were having a hard (buddumm chii) time keeping their hands off of them. Very quickly, the kitchen was a-flutter with snowpenii, snowbajingos, snowballs, snowthreesomes, snowtwosomes, and even a snowonesome. It was *madness*.
Once we finally managed to split them all up, we thrust them into the oven to bake.
Thankfully, Pavlina's recipe is a good one. So the cookies ended up turning out real nice, peepees all intact.
And despite all his whining about "never having baked a cookie before" and his skillfully crafted air of indifference towards his creations, MC *did* end up nonchalantly inquiring a few days later about whether or not I was gonna end up posting pics of some of the cookies he made.
So post them I am (click on pics for the x-rated versions).
May I present to you, MC's c0ck & balls:
- 3/4 c. vegan margarine
- 1 c. vegan sugar
- Egg replacer for 2 eggs
- 1/4 t. pure vanilla extract
- 2.5 c. flour
- 1 t. salt
- 1 t. baking powder
- 3 T. margarine
- Dash of salt
- 1/2 t. vanilla
- 1.5 c. powdered sugar
- Nondairy milk
- Vegan sprinkles for decorating
In a mixing bowl, cream margarine and sugar together. Blend in egg replacer and vanilla. Add sifted flour, salt, and baking powder. Combine to form a dough. Cover with plastic wrap and chill about 1-2 hours.
Preheat oven to 350° F.
Roll dough to desired thickness, approximately 1/8- to 1/4-inch thick, and use cookie cutters to form shapes.
Place cookies on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until just starting to brown. Cool on racks.
Once cookies are cooled, beat the frosting ingredients in a medium bowl until frosting is fluffy. Add enough milk to reach your desired frosting consistency. Spread frosting on cooled cookies. Decorate with sprinkles or colored sugar.
