Combining two of my favourite things (delicious food + delicious food) has never been so fun. 

Class Sugar Cookies
(yields 20 cookies)

3/4 cup butter
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1/2 tsp vanilla
2.5 cups flour
pinch of salt

Heat oven to 400F. Combine butter and sugar and mix until incorporated; add eggs one at a time. Continue mixing, add vanilla. Slowly add flour and salt until dough forms. Put in freezer until no longer soft and dough becomes easy to roll (about 30 mins). 

Lightly flour the work surface and rolling pin. Remove dough from freezer and carefully roll until 1/4" thick. Cut out desired shapes (in this case I used a Wilton cupcake cutter) and place on baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Put baking sheet in freezer for about 10 minutes - this will help the cookies retain their shape in the oven. Slide baking sheet into oven and cook for 8-10 minutes or until bottom begins to darken. Allow to cool, then decorate with piped royal icing and modelling chocolate.
