12 DoC // Sugar Cookies

You all ready for another family-favourite cookie recipe? ;) 
Don't forget to go to Faith's blog to see more Christmas posts! 

Random gingerbread house picture that some of you might have seen if you saw the video from yesterday ;)
So this recipe is super easy, even easier than the brown butter chocolate chip cookie recipe.  I will say though, this recipe makes a rather large amount of cookies. For our family, we only have to make one batch, but there is 10 of us. (ok, so 9 since the youngest can't eat cookies yet ;)) One batch makes about 5 dozen cookies. So if you want a smaller batch, I would suggest cutting it in half, or maybe in thirds. But if you've got a big family, hosting a party, or just love cookies....this should be right up your alley ;) 

Sugar Cookies 

1 1/2 cup butter softened 
2 cups white sugar
4 eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract 
5 cups of flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt 

Cream butter and sugar until smooth
Beat in eggs and vanilla 
Stir in flour, baking powder, and salt. 
Cover and chill for at least 1 hour (or overnight) 
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. 
Roll out dough on floured surface to about 1/4 inch thickness
Cut into any kind of shape you'd like. (even if you don't have a cookie cutter in the shape you want, you can always form it with your fingers or use a knife to cut it out.) 
Place 1 inch apart on un-greased cookie sheet. 
Bake 6-8 minutes or until the bottom is a light golden brown. Cool completely. 

Sugar Cookie Frosting 

Icing sugar

Stir together until desired consistency. 

And now for the fun part....

Decorating!! ^_^ 

There's really no need for directions hear. Let your creativity flow! And remember, there can never be too many sprinkles ;)

5 More Days 'Till Christmas!!!


  1. I'm not as fond of rolling out and cutting the cookies, but decorating can be fun. And when you have younger ones . . . :) So much the better. :)

  2. I love sugar cookies! They are my absolute favorite! :D They taste wonderful and they're fun to make. =)

  3. Oh! Oh! I just made sugar cookies yesterday! Well, technically...my mom made the dough, and...I rolled out the dough and cut out the cookies. :) I like the guitar one and the Christmas tree. And the star. And the Olaf one is so cute! :)

  6. I don't think I like sugar cookies....I can't remember the last time I had them even. ;)
    You know what is scrumptiously delicious? Cranberry whip also called cranberry fluff in our family. I'm sitting here commenting while eating some of that delicious stuff....mmmm....:)

    Merry Christmas!

    Ps. By the way, love your new family picture. :)

    1. *gasps* You don't like sugar cookies? Hehe, that's ok ;) Ooo....cranberry whip? Can't say I've heard of it before. What is it exactly? I googled it and I'm seeing pineapples, marshmallows, grapes, pecans, and Cool Whip together - sounds awesome! :D


Hi! Thanks for stopping by! :)
I LOVE comments, so please do leave one! I will try and reply as soon as possible :D If you comment under Anonymous, please leave a name (it can be made up or real, your choice ;)
Oh, and as you all probably know, my family and I are under pseudonyms (you didn’t really think I had a brother named Spiderman or Ironman, did ya? We’re weird, but not 'that' weird! :P) If you do know our real names, please don’t say it in the comment box. Public safety stuff ;) Thanks!

Finally, brothers (and sisters!), whatever is true, whatever is honourable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things
