Pink Sugar Cookies

I love most cookies, and when it comes to sugar cookies as long as there is frosting I am not picky, but these are by far my favorite!

Sugar Cookies
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 cup melted butter
Cream together, add
2 eggs
1 tsp Vanilla
1/2 cup milk
Mix well
In seperate bowl mix:
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
4 cups flour
Add dry ingredients to mixture and mix completely
Mixture will be very sticky, it's okay it's just because the butter was melted
Refrigerate for 4 hours
Roll out on floured surface, you may need to add extra flour if dough is too sticky
Cut in shapes
Bake 350 10-12 minutes, until edges are light brown

Pink Frosting
1 package cream cheese (8oz)
1 stick butter
2-4 cups powdered sugar
2-4 tbsp milk
***just add powdered sugar and milk until desired consistency and taste***
food coloring of choice, I prefer pink
Yummy Yummy, Enjoy!

Mug Cake

This cake is different but its a fun quick little dessert for two, maybe for your sweet Valentine! From nothing to belly in about five minutes...

4 Tbsp Flour
4 Tbsp Sugar
2 Tbsp Cocoa Powder
A dash of salt
1 egg
3 Tbsp Milk
3 Tbsp Oil
Dash of Vanilla
4 Tbsp Chocolate Chips

Mix dry ingredients in a mug. stir in egg, mix well. add wet ingredients, stir well. Stir in 3 Tbsp Chocolate Chips. Pour remainder of chips on top. Microwave for 3 minutes, Cake will rise up out of cup, but no worries. After its done pull it out, run a knife around the edge and dump on a plate. The texture of this cake is different. Spongy. But it tastes pretty good and its super fun and duper easy.
Yummy with ice cream!!!
