It's the most wonderful time of the year. With family and friends and food galore, and of course, cookies! Here's another family favorite: My Sister's Sugar Cookies Ingredients 2 sticks of butter, softened 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar 1 egg 1 tsp vanilla extra 2 1/2 cups flour 1 tsp baking soda 1 tsp cream of tartar Mix together the first four ingredients and beat until smooth. Combine remaining three ingredients and slowly add to the mixture. Refrigerate dough for 3 to 12 hours (it is easier to work with the dough once its chilled). Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Roll out dough on a floured surface and cut into desired shapes. Bake for 5-7 minutes. Allow cookies to cool. Frosting 3 1/2 cups of powdered sugar 5 tablespoons of butter, softened 1 tsp vanilla extract Milk (just enough to make a creamy frosting) Mix together the above ingredients and spread onto of cookies. Add food coloring or sprinkles as desired.
Not to be confused with the other version of arcades, where kiddos drop coins in a machine to play their favorite games, the London Arcades are much more sophisticated. At the London Arcades, there is shop after shop after shop.
London is filled with these "arcades" throughout the city. Each entrance is adorned with beautiful architecture. And the arcades are even more decorated come the Christmas season.
