The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

I am not a huge fan of sugar cookies, most are too crunchy and overly sweet.  This is not the case with The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies Recipe – Allrecipes.com.  These cookies are soft but not chewy and the sweetness level is just right.  Most of the sweetening comes from whatever icing or frosting you top your cookies with.

Although the original recipe makes an obscene amount, so I made half the recipe and still have plenty.  I also have a favorite recipe for frosting I prefer.  It can be colored and hardens slightly so it can be stacked carefully.  Check out cookie frosting recipe by clicking the link.

Remember to leave yourself time to refrigerate the dough overnight.  This makes it easier anyways, dough one day and bake the next day.

Cool on pans at least 2 minutes and move to a wire rack to cool completely.

Once cool, frost or ice cookies if desired.  I would recommend my favorite cookie frosting.

  1. This looks a lot like my Mom’s Christmas cookies. But she put a bit of almond extract in them too. I loved that they stayed soft.
