Infinity Stone Sugar Cookies with a Lemon Glaze
Recently Disney sent me a surprise package with a recipe for Infinity Stone Cookies, an Avengers themed oven mitt, a cookie cutter, and the movie. I tried out the cookie recipe and wanted to share it with you as a fun family movie night or movie party idea! This recipe is simple to make. Children can easily help with the preparation.
4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 sticks butter (8 oz) unsalted, softened
2 cups sugar
2 large eggs
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
Put butter and sugar in the bowel of an electric mixer, and use the paddle attachment to stir until it becomes pale and fluffy. In a separate bowl, mix flour, baking powder, and salt. Add the eggs and vanilla, and mix on low.
Gradually add in the dry ingredients. Mix on low and add a little at a time. Use a spatula to get any off the side of the bowl to make sure that it is well combined.
Divide the dough into six equal portions. Add a generous amount of food coloring to make vibrant jewel colors. While wearing food safe gloves, mix the dough until it becomes the right color.
Wrap each portion in plastic wrap. Refrigerate at least an hour or overnight.
Preheat the oven to 320 degrees F. Roll the dough and cut out the shapes. If you find it difficult to use the cookie cutters, sprinkle flour on the dough, on the rolling pin, and on the cookie cutters. This can help you cut the dough when it is raw.
Remove excess dough and place in the freezer for 15 minutes. Bake for 7-11 minutes. Remove from the oven, and let cool before serving.
Another option is to cut the cookies right after you have baked them and before you have let them cool.
This is a basic sugar cookie recipe, but you could customize it by adding white chocolate chips, crushed pecans or walnuts, or a dash of cinnamon.
To give the cookies more flavor, I created a lemon glaze. Check out how to make it.
Lemon Glaze Ingredients
1 1/2 cups of powdered sugar
Juice the lemons in a cup and remove the seeds. Pour into a bowl. Zest the lemons and add the lemon zest to the bowl along with the powdered sugar. Whisk well until mixed completely. Coat the top of each cookie with the glaze and let it set for a few moments before serving.
