3 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
pinch of salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
Super Black food gel dye
The first step of course is to buy these AMAZING Weeping Angel cookie cutters from WarpZone.
Now for the cookies, in a medium bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
In the bowl of an electric mixer cream the butter and sugar until combined. Add the egg and vanilla.
Now here’s where the magic happens, slowly add in the flour until it’s crumbly. Then add just 1 – 2 drops of Super Black food gel dye. By adding this after the dough is almost done you will get a grayed marble effect.
Beat the mixture together a bit more, just until the dough comes together and looks almost like Bleu Cheese. Don’t mix too far, you will be rolling this out later which will mix it even more. You don’t want all gray dough.
Separate the dough into two and wrap in plastic wrap. Chill in the fridge.
When you are ready to make cookies preheat the oven to 350 degrees and prep cookie sheets with silpats.
Roll out the dough to 3/8″ thick. You want to make it thick enough to get all of the impressions to show through. Also this particular cutter needs a little help, so dip it in flour before you press it into the dough. It will keep it from sticking.
Don’t even blink.
Move the cookies to the prepped cookie sheets and bake for 10 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack.
The Weeping angels; if you can’t beat ’em, eat ’em!
