Recipe // Bart Simpson Sugar Cookies

bam. I whipped him up some totally amazing Bart Simpsons cookies using my mom's Xmas cookie recipe. The result? ¡Ay, caramba!

I bought this cookie cutter on Etsy from a shop called CookiePrints. They have some really amazing cutters than can be used for a variety of different projects. The cookie baking instructions and ingredients are waiting for you after the jump!

1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
4 cups flour
4 tablespoons milk
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
(I typically make sugar cookies with a tsp of baking soda as well, but left it out to prevent rising and distortion of the cookie shape)
Powdered sugar
Food coloring

1. Pre-heat oven to 350°.
2. Mix all of your ingredients together, added the flour last.
3. Chill dough for 30 minutes.
4. Using a floured surface, roll out the dough using a floured rolling pin. For this cookie, I made it about 1/2" thick. Cut cookies and place on the cookie sheet.
5. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden.
6. While these cookies are cooling, make your dipping frosting. I made a very simple version using powdered sugar and milk. You only need a small amount of milk mixed with the sugar to create a nice, consistent dipping frosting.
7. Separate your frosting for colors — I needed yellow and white. I made a small piping bag of the white for the eyes and colored the remainder of the frosting yellow for dipping.
8. Once your cookies have cooled, dip them and use a drying rack to let the excess frosting drip. Once the yellow is dry, you can pipe on the white for the eyes. It doesn't have to be perfect — you'll be piping on outlines in a moment.
9. You can use any chocolate frosting you wish. In my experience, dyed black frosting bleed into the lighter dipping frostings and look icky after a day or two — the chocolate will save you a bit. I made my own since Brock can't eat High fructose corn syrup, but just make a piping bag of chocolate and draw your Bart details! And you're finished!

Cute, right? Plus, they matched the record I got him!
