Now that that is over! Happy Cinco De Mayo! (Tomorrow that is, lol.) Now, what is this in the video above? Simple! A Maraca Cookie! Not the cleanest work but it was late and I wanted to get done fast since I had completed a lot of other cookies.
Rather simple to make actually. You just need 3 cookie cut out in the same shape, one of those hollowed out and one of those on a cookie stick. Bake, cool, cement together with royal icing as you stack them and fill with mini M&M's! Pretty cool!

Lila Loa makes probably the best vanilla sugar cookie on the planet, I just adore her cookie. Not only does it taste great but it holds its shape better than any other I have tried and trust me, I have tried a lot of them. Add even more goodness and they are the perfect base for variations! So what do I do? Come up with my own!
Yuppers, here is a quick take on her cookie recipe that you can find here - Vanilla Sugar Cookie
Just take her recipe and follow it. Omit the orange/almond and add in the following:
1 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon to the dry ingredients
1 Teaspoon Cinnamon Extract
1 Teaspoon Butter Flavorings
What does this give you? Churro cookies!!! That's right, a rich buttery cinnamon sugar cookie that is just perfect for the holiday!
