We’re positively shaking with excitement for our upcoming special release. The SHIMONETA Limited Edition set is one box stuffed full of the most exciting and essential items every SOX recruit needs. But making the world a dirtier place isn’t an easy task. Exerting all that stamina and energy can leave you feeling….hungry! And we’ve got just the thing to satiate that hunger—Anna’s Love Nectar cookies. We’ve been up all night preparing this special dish, so go on, take a nibble!
Can you taste the love? Why not share it with the world? Here’s how to make your own:
1 ½ cups butter, softened
2 cups white sugar
5 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
In a large bowl, whip together butter and sugar until it becomes a perfect creamy mixture. Beat in eggs and vanilla—but not too hard! Then, grasp your spoon and stir in the flour, baking powder, and salt. It will take just the right pressure to make sure it all comes together and make this batter silky smooth. Cover and let it sit in the fridge for an hour.
While your dough takes some time to stiffen up, think of all the things you can accomplish in an hour:
- Spread the word of SOX
- Make your very own Blue Snow cosplay
- Pre-order your copy of the SHIMONETA LE set
- Form your own SOX Squad
- Scale the side of a building in a fashionable nurse outfit*
- *Do not actually attempt
OH! It’s been an hour? Wonderful.
Time to start the fire! Pre-heat your oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). I know that the love within you may burn even hotter, but you don’t want the cookies to end up burnt! While things get heated up over there, you’ll need to roll out the dough on a floured surface. With gentle but firm pressure, press on the cool dough with your wooden pin and make sure it’s rolled out to about ¼ to ½ inch thick. Too thick and it won’t cook just right!
Using a cookie cutter of your choice (we think hearts are perfect, but balls are always a classic!), cut shapes into your dough. Place cookies 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Then, place your cookies in the oven for a quickie—6 to 8 minutes should be enough for these delightful delicacies to bake!
While they’re cooling, you can add the finishing touches like sprinkles, icing, (a drop of love nectar, perhaps?) or anything else you fancy.
Serve to your beloved and enjoy!
