High School Knowledge Bowl

The High School Varsity Knowledge Bowl has been doing quite well in their matches. Teams are selected based on cumulative practice points. This year, the team has taken home the first-place ribbon for both November and December. In January, the team will face off at the Varsity only match in the hope of qualifying for state. Wish them luck the next time you see them.

Christmas Sugar Cookies

FOR THE COOKIE DOUGH

3 c. all-purpose flour, plus more for surface

1 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. kosher salt

1 c. (2 sticks) butter, softened

1 c. granulated sugar

1 large egg

1 tsp. pure vanilla extract

1 tbsp. milk

FOR THE BUTTERCREAM FROSTING

1 c. (2 sticks) butter, softened

5 c. powdered sugar

1/4 c. heavy cream

1/2 tsp. pure almond extract

1/4 tsp. kosher salt

Food coloring

Directions


  1. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt and set aside.

  2. In another large bowl, beat butter and sugar until fluffy and pale in color. Add egg, milk, and vanilla and beat until combined, then add flour mixture gradually until totally combined.

  3. Shape into a disk and wrap in plastic. Refrigerate 1 hour.

  4. When ready to roll, preheat oven to 350º and line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Lightly flour a clean work surface and roll out dough until 1/8” thick. Cut out shapes and transfer to prepared baking sheets. Freeze 10 minutes (so your shapes hold while baking!).

  5. Meanwhile, make frosting: In a large bowl using a hand mixer, beat butter until smooth, then add powdered sugar and beat until no lumps remain. Add cream, almond extract, and salt and beat until combined.

  6. Bake cookies until edges are lightly golden, 8 to 10 minutes.

  7. Let cool, then frost and decorate as desired.
