Gone In 60 Seconds: Mustang Cookies

You need some deliciousness FAST? A 200 horsepower V-8 engine in these vintage 66 fastback mustangs go from zero to chewy so fast and furious that they hit the vanishing point and are gone in 60 seconds. Lets hit the two lane table-top and get cookin!

Sugar Cookies
makes about 5 dozen

  • 1 c. butter
  • 1 1/2 c. powdered sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract
  • 2 1/2 c. flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cream of tartar

Royal Icing
makes about 3 cups

  • 3 oz. egg whites
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 4 c. powdered sugar

Mix Batter: Using a hand or stand mixer, cream butter and sugar together.  Add egg and vanilla.  Mix all the dry ingredients in a separate bowl.  Slowly add dry ingredients to the wet batter until well mixed.

Chill dough: Seperate dough ball into two balls and wrap each in cellophane. Chill for 2-3 hours.

Cut Cookies:  Working with one ball at a time, roll dough out about 1/4″ – 1/8″ thick and cut using cookie cutters.

Bake at 375 degrees for 7-8 minutes.

Make Royal Icing: In large bowl of stand mixer combine the egg whites and vanilla and beat until frothy. Add confectioners’ sugar gradually and mix on low speed until sugar is incorporated and mixture is shiny. Turn speed up to high and beat until mixture forms stiff, glossy peaks. This should take approximately 5 to 7 minutes. Add food coloring, if desired.  Use immediately.

Decorate how you prefer.  I coated my cars with a nice candy apple red coat and then black lines for accent.

Eat! Gentlemen, start your engines.  On your mark, get set, GO!
