Soft Sugar Cookies

Soft Sugar Cookies

The most soft and delicious sugar cookie. 

I love sugar cookies and am kind of a snob when it comes to them.  They have to be soft but not dry, they can’t have too much frosting and the dough needs to not be too sweet.  These cookies hit all of those points and even more.

As much as I love a cutout cookie for the holidays, it’s nice to not have to worry about cutting them out and having kids decorate them. These ones are just a simple circle cookie and I like decorating them simple.  You can also color the frosting and use them for any time of year.

You guys.  They are so good! Be sure to save the recipe to your PINTEREST cookie oard.

Instructions
FOR THE COOKIES:
  1. Cream the butter until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add the heavy cream, sugar, vanilla & eggs. Mix until combined. Add the baking powder and flour and mix well.
  2. Shape the dough into a circle/ball & wrap in saran wrap. Refrigerate overnight or for at least 4 hours.
  3. Heat your oven to 350 degrees F. Roll out the dough on a floured surface. (I usually do them thick about 1/2″). Use a 3″- 3 1/2″ circle cookie cutter. Place circles on a parchment lined cookie sheet.
  4. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until bottoms are a very light brown. DO NOT overtake or they will be dry. Take them out right when they are done and don’t look wet on top.
FOR THE FROSTING:
  1. Cream the butter until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add 4 cups of the powdered sugar, the milk, vanilla & almond extract. Beat till smooth and creamy. Add the remaining sugar, one cup at a time until desired consistency. Add food coloring if desired.
