Come Party With Me: Bachelorette — Dessert


Although most of a bachelorette party in Vegas will be spent living it up in the casinos, bars, restaurants, and nightclubs, I'm hosting a small lingerie shower for Elena in my hotel room. Along with some simple snacks, I'll serve sugar cookies.

However, these cookies won't be round like in the picture: I'm making them festive by using pecker cookie cutters!

To take a look at the cookie recipe,

Sugar Cookies

Ingredients

2 1/2 cups self-rising White Lily or cake flour
2 sticks (1 cup) unsalted butter, softened
1-1/2 cups sugar
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Put flour in a bowl and make a well in center.
  3. Beat together butter and sugar in another bowl with an electric mixer until light and fluffy, then beat in egg and vanilla until blended.
  4. Add butter mixture to flour and rub it into flour with your fingertips just until dough comes together in a ball (do not overwork dough, or it will be tough).
  5. Halve dough and work with 1 half at a time. Roll out dough 1/4 inch thick on a floured surface with a lightly floured rolling pin.
  6. Cut out cookies with a floured cutter (we used a 2 1/2-inch fluted round cutter), arranging cookies, as cut, 1 inch apart on ungreased baking sheets. Reroll scraps once, using as little flour as possible, and cut out more cookies.
  7. Bake cookies, 1 sheet at a time, in middle of oven until very pale golden, 12 to 15 minutes.
  8. Cool on baking sheet 1 minute, then transfer to a rack to cool 5 minutes if serving warm, or to cool completely.

Makes about 3 1/2 dozen (3-inch) cookies.

Make ahead: cookies keep in an airtight container 1 week.

I got a penis cake mold I have yet to use, none of my friends were all too thrilled about it and somehow I don't see them doing it for me... Oh well, I love genitalia related baked goods ::sigh:: maybe someday....

Webcomic Penny-Arcade did a contest featuring these back at Christmastime. It started with a simple comic strip in which one of the characters appears to be making some oddly-shaped cookies. http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2007/12/21/ Then the readers got involved and ended up sending in pictures of their own cookies, which had been named "dickerdoodles". Warning - may not be entirely work-safe. http://www.penny-arcade.com/2008/1/2/

Hmm...I'd make the cookies, but I probably wouldn't use the pecker cookie cutters unless everyone there was over 18. My bachelorette party had my 14 year old cousin there, so those cookies would have been slightly inappropriate.
