Baking 102: Christmas Edition

So, I’ve been baking all day today. What else is there to do besides bake and shop for xmas presents at this point? I have a mani, pedi, and my shopping is done so I decided to spend over $100 buying baking stuff and set to work. I tweeted about it all day, and decided to share my favorites with you! MERRY CHRISTMAS

Slampiece’s “Hey, Sugar” Cookies
2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 tablespoon milk
Powdered sugar, for rolling out dough
Preheat oven to 375 Degrees (farenheight, we live in America)
Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
Place butter and sugar in large bowl and mix for about a minute. I usually do it for an entire Katy Perry song, whatever works.
Add egg and milk and beat to combine. Put mixer on low speed, gradually add flour, and beat until mixture pulls away from the side of the bowl.
Divide the dough in half, wrap in waxed paper, and refrigerate for 2 hours.
After 2 hours, take out and roll out to ¼ in thick, then use cookie cutters and go CRAZY!
Slampiece’s Mother’s Royal Icing recipe
Every color of food coloring you can find
3 egg whites
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (real thing, honey, no imitations)
4 cups of Confectioner’s/Powdered sugar
Combine eggs and vanilla until frothy, and then slowly add confectioners sugar using a mixer on low speed. Mix on high for like 5 minutes (2 katy perry songs) until glossy. Separate and add desired coloring! TA DA.
Did some loser give you Starbucks VIA for xmas?
Make Slampiece’s Coffee Spice Cookies! Perfectly paired with cinnamon scones and a hangover!
2 teaspoons Starbucks VIA (1 package)           
1 teaspoon hot water
1/2 cup Butter Shortening
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups Flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup chocolate decorator bits


Heat oven to 375.

Dissolve Instant coffee in hot water. It’s going to look like a weird brown mess. Beat shortening, brown sugar, egg, vanilla and coffee mixture in large bowl with electric mixer until light and fluffy. Mix in flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt.

Divide dough into two equal parts. Shape each half into a roll 7-inches long x 1 1/2-inches in diameter. Roll in chocolate decorator bits, pressing lightly. Wrap tightly. Refrigerate at least 2 hours.

Cut rolls into 1/4-inch slices. Place slices 1-inch apart on ungreased baking sheet.

Bake 6 to 8 minutes or until set. Cool on rack.
Have a great holiday, Sorostitutes! I'll try to make myself or another sissy post something before Christmas since we are all on break being hoodlums

  1. I'm baking your sugar cookies for my fratdaddy right now and noticed you didn't give a bake time! I'm sure I can figure it out, but I just wanted to point it out so it could be fixed for future bakers. Thanks! I'm sure they'll be delicious
