Tea Pot cookie recipe for you...

Helo my dear friends, here I'am again...popping in to share this lovely recipe with you....


1 1/2 cups butter, softened
2cups white sugar, I used a little bit less like 1 & 1/2 cups
4 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
5 cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt


In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Stir in the flour, baking powder, and salt. Cover, and chill dough for at least on hour or (overnight). Preheat over to 4oo degrees F. Roll out dough on to a floured surface 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick. Cut into shapes with any cookie cutter Of course I used my tea pot cookie cutters..

Place cookies one inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 6 to 8 minutes in a preheated oven, I had to cook them more my new oven isn't so hot...they will be light on top and slightly brown on the bottom.
It's a very simple recipe but it taste pretty good.
I made my own frosting with Powder sugar and milk with vanilla..I didn't measure anything I just did whatever..I added one drop of blue food coloring to the frosting to give it a pretty lite blue color.
I painted them with a kitchen paint brush for me this worked well. . I did find that doing one at a time works best frosting then decorating all at one. because when I did it the other way when I went to put the pearls on I made indents on the icing...They stayed nice for three days then then kind of looked a little I will have to work on a better frosting for them...I used little tiny pearls for the decoration..
All finished ....
I hope that you like them as much as we did...
I changed my bedding to Autumn colors and I just love it...I haven't finished it all though...I put this on the wall, I got it at the Goodwill for 99 cents, it was bran new with a tag of 13.50 on it..the picture doesn't really do it justice...
This is a old T.V. tray I got a long time ago...I don't have the legs though..I been trying to find some but haven't had any luck doing so...But just the same I love it's pretty orange flowers...sometimes I put it on top of some smaller ones I have...
Well, I think that's it for today, If you make the Teapot cookies let me know how they turn out would love to know..Well it's Friday and I'm thinking to take off Me Vee and Jesse to my older daughter's house to hang out...I think we out need to get out of the house...sweetpea tooo....Have a wonderfully blessed weekend my dear sweet Ladies...thank you so much for your lovely comment for my previous post.
