CHRISTMAS SUGAR COOKIE RECIPE

Ingredients
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup softened butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 2 cups flour
BUTTERCREAM SUGAR COOKIE FROSTING:
  • 1/2 cup soft butter
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 tsp. vanilla

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Cream together sugar and butter for 2-3 minutes.  Add egg, vanilla and sour cream.
  3. In separate bowl, combine flour, salt and baking soda. Add dry ingredients to butter mixture, beat until smooth.
  4. Place the sugar cookie dough in a bowl and cover. Chill the dough for at least 2 hours in the refrigerator. (Sometimes I make the dough the day before and it is totally fine to leave in the refrigerator overnight.)
  5. Roll and cut with shaped cutters. Make sure to spread flour out on the counter where you are rolling out the dough so that the dough doesn't stick to your counter! I also like to coat the cutting edge of the cookie cutters and the rolling pin too just to make sure that nothing sticks!
  6. Bake at 375 for 10 minutes. Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for about 5-7 minutes before moving to a wire rack to finish cooling.
  7. Cool completely and frost as you’d like!
  8. BUTTERCREAM SUGAR COOKIE FROSTING INSTRUCTIONS:
  9. Beat butter until smooth.  Beat in remaining ingredients until smooth, about 2 minutes. Add additional milk a little at a time if thinner consistency is desired.
  10. Add food coloring if desired. Decorate cooled cookies - this is the part that my kids love the most!
