I decided to try a new sugar cookie recipe, the last ones I made weren’t sweet enough for me. I also wanted to use my new cookie cutters that Annie sent me. Specifically the heart shaped cutter, my son loved them before he tasted them because of the shape!
The recipe I used is “The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies“. After reading reviews on the site I decided to add an extra cup of sugar and I think I doubled the Vanilla that I put in, maybe. (I always over estimate on the extract because I’m too lazy to find the little measuring spoons.) The frosting on the cookies is the same recipe I always use, powdered sugar, food coloring and milk, it’s yummy and easy. The recipe says it makes 5 dozen cookies, I got 11 dozen out of one batch. I don’t know if my cookie cutters are too small or what but I thought the cookies were a good size. These definitely are the best sugar cookies I’ve ever made. If you decide to make them add that extra cup of sugar, you won’t be disappointed.

I am in love with a new cookie, again. I found this recipe a few weeks ago and have been so excited to make it but had to put it off until today. They were worth the wait.
My picture does not do these cookies justice. Now I doubled the recipe since one recipe makes about 2 1/2 dozen cookies (thanks to Kelley for her quick response to my question!) and I always send at least 3 dozen to work with Gus. I refrigerated the dough for about 45 minutes after separating it into 4 blobs and the only cookie cutters I have are Christmas themed so I rolled the dough into balls and pressed them down with the bottom of a floured cup. I also used a different frosting because I couldn’t find the orange liqueur in my local grocery store and I forgot to put half and half on my list. Even without the right frosting these cookies are incredible.
Props to Kelley for being such a bamf and coming up with this recipe! Thank you!
This was my first time making chocolate chip (I got chips instead of chunks – my bad) cookies from scratch. I’m so glad I found this recipe. My cookies didn’t exactly look like hers but they tasted amazing. I made them on Sunday (12/22) and sent two dozen to work with my fiance. His co-workers loved them and so did he. He even said they were close to his grandma’s cookies which is an incredible compliment because his grandma’s cookies are the best I’ve ever had.
I made the cookies again on Monday (12/23) and froze some while keeping the rest in the refrigerator. They didn’t make it through Christmas Eve but they did freeze well and tasted just as delicious (if not more) as my first attempt.
Both times I got 3 dozen cookies (exactly), about one tablespoon per cookie. For my second attempt I ran out of vanilla extract and used maple syrup in it’s place (measured the same as I would extract) and I didn’t notice a difference.
My conclusion: MAKE THESE COOKIES AND EAT THEM.
I decided that I wanted to make some classic sugar cookies in the shape of Christmas trees so I browsed around for a simple recipe with decent reviews. I also looked for a good icing recipe. This is what I found.
This recipe is beyond easy and super convenient. I happen to have all of these ingredients on hand at all times. The cookies turned out soft and delicious. Not too sweet and no dull chalky texture. If you’re looking for a simple sugar cookie recipe this is the one to go with.
This icing recipe is exactly what it says. The best and easiest. It is delicious and with only two ingredients I fell in love with it instantly. Highly recommended!
