If your little one is asking to make Team Umizoomi Ice Cream Pizza and you need a little help, I am here to rescue you.
Okay, if your kid is like mine it is a little more complicated than that. Especially finding the red and yellow striped candies! I finally found these peach flavored ones that are actually orangy and have holes. The ones in the show are complete circles. Surprisingly, J was okay with it. But when my friend showed her son the picture he informed her the candies were wrong. And then he asked her to make it. Sorry, Tola.
I made a quick batch of the sugar cookie dough below and divided into thirds. I put a third of the recipe into an aluminum foil lined 8" cake pan for the Ice Cream Pizza. The remaining two-thirds we used to make special cookies for some special people. I am specifically not saying who because at least one of them reads this blog and for now it is a secret.
- 1 ½ cup salted butter
- 1 ½ cup powdered sugar
- 4 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- In a medium bowl, cream butter. Add sugar, scraping bowl as needed, until smooth. Add vanilla and mix until creamy. Add flour. Gather dough into two balls, flatten into a disk and put in a plastic bag. Let rest in the refrigerator for 1 hour or until firm.
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Roll out dough on a floured board and cut into desired shapes. Place on cookie sheet about ½ inch apart and bake about 15 minutes until just starting to turn brown.
- Let cool completely and decorate with icing as desired.
Until next time, PATTERN POWER! oops! I mean... happy eating.
