I'm back from Montreal, Canada with a new style of cookie-making for me (out of my comfort zone!): log cookies! These cookies are inspired by Candy Lab's handmade candy!
Candy Labs makes their candy by breaking down the design into smaller shapes and then rolling them all together into a log. I attempted to mimmic this method for this week's Pokemon cookies!

SUGAR COOKIE RECIPE
3 Cups Flour
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Salt
2 Sticks Butter (unsalted!)
1 1/3 Cups Sugar
2 tsp Vanilla Extract
Red and Black Food Coloring
Step 1: Watch Video!
Step 2: Sift Dry Ingredients Together. Set Aside.
Step 3: Beat Butter and Sugar
Step 4: Add Eggs (one at Time Until Each Is Incorporated)
Step 5: Add Vanilla. Mix.
Step 6: Gradually Add Flour. Mix Until Just Incorporated.
Step 7: Separate Sections
Break into 3 sections: 1 larger section, 1 slightly smaller, and 1 even smaller
Step 8: Dye the Smaller Sections
The medium sized section should be dyed red and the smallest section, black.
Step 9: Roll Part of White Section Into a Log
Step 10: Roll Part of Black Section Into a Rectangle
The rectangle should be the length of the log and as wide as the diameter of the white section.
Step 11: Roll the Black Rectangle Around the White Log
Step 12: Form Rest of Dough Into Thick Rectangles
With the rest of the white and red dough, form identical thick rectangles that are the length of the black log.
Break the rest of the black dough in two and shape into much thinner rectangles of the same length.
Attach the pieces, alternating black with the other two colors.
Step 13: Roll Around Log
Place the log onto the rectangle and roll the rectangle around the log.
Step 14: Cut Cookies
Roll out the log and cut the cookies
Step 15: Bake
Bake in a 350 degree oven for 10-30 minutes, depending on the thickness of the cookies. Enjoy!
