How to Glaze Sugar Cookies Like a Pro

If you've followed our blog for awhile you know that Cutler's will occasionally host a cooking class. Unfortunately, we've run out of both parking and room for people to come for a class, so we've come up with a new idea with Si from A Bountiful Kitchen, the virtual class. Last week, we were able to go to Si's amazing kitchen and whip up some of Cutler's Famous Sugar Cookies. Si especially wanted to do the glazed ones, and that's kind of what I wanted to show you, this has been one of those things when we've done cooking classes that make people go crazy. I'm not actually going to post the recipe here, you can check out the link above from last year when I posted it though. I am posting just a few pictures from that fun day though. 

The first picture is Curt making sugar cookie dough and to the left is Si cutting out the cookies. You can also go to Si's blog and check out her step by step instructions for making these great sugar cookies. I have to say she did an awesome job with this post! 

 Now on to how to glaze cookies like a pro. First step go to Home Depot or Lowes and buy one of these pans like the picture to the right. You'll find it in the drywall area, it's a mud pan. Next make the glaze, recipe found here or here. Fill the pan with the glaze. You will also need a standard cookie sheet and a wire rack that fits in the cookie sheet, I bought mine at Orson Gygi, love that store! Place your cookies on the wire rack on the tray and pour the glaze slowly over the top of them, I know that Si posted an awesome Gif image in her blog. You can also just put the glaze in a flat dish and dip the cookies in it and smooth with the flat edge of a knife.

Here's the video I took of Curt glazing the cookies. This always amazes the audience when we teach cooking classes. 

Here's the finished product.
