I really cannot believe it is Christmas Eve. December went by way too fast. Luckily this week we haven’t had many things to do, all of our Christmas parties were earlier in the month so this week we have just been enjoying each others company and hanging out. Oh, and baking all the things. We usually leave Santa Snow Cookies (you can see the recipe here), but we figured we would make some sugar cookies as well because they are fun to decorate and are so good.
I know there are a trillion different kinds of sugar cookie recipes. My grandma even has a great one, but this recipe I am going to share is seriously the best one for cut outs. It is a soft cookie that holds it shape. It is buttery and sugary and everything you want in a sugar cookie.
When baking these cookies you will want to keep an eye on them, don’t let the edges brown. Also, quickly move them to a cooling rack to cool. Once they are cool you can frost them. I’ve included a recipe for a frosting that can be piped on and you can get really fancy with your designs, but you can use any recipe you want.
Enjoy this recipe during all the holidays with your little ones, they love decorating and creating (and tasting). This is my go-to for cut outs all year round. Hope you like them. Have a great Christmas.
