Wedding Favor Sugar Cookies - NJ Bakery

Bogota, NJ

At Confectionary Designs (a New Jersey bakery) we encourage our brides to provide edible favors for thier guests, whether this be a bag of spiced nuts, a box of our famous truffles, or a sugar cookie designed just for them. The cookie above is a mini replica of the couple's wedding cake and it looked lovely in a clear cello bag with a ribbon.

We have a favorite sugar cookie recipe that we find works perfectly everytime:

3 cups flour
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cups granulated sugar
1  egg
1 tsp. extract (e.g. vanilla, almond, pear, etc...)
1/2 tsp salt
  • With the paddle attachment on your mixer cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Add egg and flavoring extract of your choice and mix until incorporated
  • Sift dry ingredients together and mix just until the dough holds together.
  • Chill dough for at least an hour; roll out to desired thickness and cut out your cookies
  • Bake at 350 degrees F for about 8 - 10 minutes
  • Let cool and decorate as desire.
