Sugar Cookies…{Best Recipe}

Well Christmas has finally come to our house….we are in the middle of some renos (kitchen ceiling) that have made for a pretty dusty experience so I was holding off. One week before Christmas and I couldn’t wait any longer!

So meticulous

One of the things we did today was make sugar cookies. the kids had a blast cutting and decorating them – and I had fun watching them.

He started out careful...

Here is the recipe!

1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened (I use margarine)

3 oz cream cheese, softened

1/2 cup sugar

1/4 cup honey

1 egg

1/2 tsp vanilla

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 tsp baking powder

pinch of salt

1. Beat butter, cream cheese, sugar, honey, egg, and vanilla in a large bowl until creamy. Stir in flour, baking powder, and salt until well blended. Form dough into ball and wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate about 2 hours or until firm.

2. Preheat oven to 350. Lightly grease cookie sheets (I use parchment paper) – roll out dought to 1/4″ thickness on floured surface with lightly floured rolling pin. Use cookie cutters to make desired shapes. 

3. Bake for 8-10 minutes, until edges are lightly browned. Let cool completely on wire racks before decorating!
