BLOGMAS | Easy Christmas Sugar Cookie Recipe | AnjelCo


And we're getting festive again with some more baking! (I promise this will be the last one for a while). I know, I know, I'm a bad influence. It's literally a biscuit of baked sugar- but it just tastes so dang good! These babies were literally gone in two days in my house! Let's see if yours can last longer! ; ) This recipe would be perfect for making with your little one and getting creative with your icing, or maybe you're just a big baby like me!

If you're looking for a hot drink to accompany these cookies, or maybe gingerbread is more your thing- make sure you give these a try!









Easy Sugar Cookie Recipe
Makes 2 doz. 

3/4 cup of unsalted butter, softened
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1/2 tsp of vanilla extract
2 + 1/2 cups of plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt

For the icing:
2-3 cups of icing sugar
1/2 tsp of vanilla extract
Food colouring

1. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
2. Add the eggs and vanilla 
3. Once combined, add the flour mix in thirds and fold until it creates a dough.
4. Split dough in half, wrap in cling film and refrigerate for a few hours or overnight.
5. Once your dough is chilled and ready to be rolled, preheat your oven to 180C on fan assist.
6. Roll out your dough on a lightly floured surface and roll to about 1/2 cm thickness. Place your cookies on lined trays of greaseproof paper and bake for 8 minutes or until starting to brown at the edges. Cool completely on a wire rack before icing.
7. Mix together the icing sugar, vanilla and food colouring. Pipe onto cookies.

  2. Sugar cookies are one of my favourite things to eat, any day of the year! These are so festive, and they're beautifully decorated :) My favourite way to get into the Christmas spirit is to bake and watch Christmas films :) I hope you had a great day yesterday! xx

    1. Absolutely agree Jessica! Thanks, I tried to decorate them nicely but in the end I got a bit lazy and started drawing squiggles! ^_^

      Merry Christmas!
