Cookie Creations Sugar Cookies


This recipe makes a lot of cookies, about 8 dozen 3-inch cookies. They are not soft and not crispy. They freeze well. Make a batch ahead of time, freeze them and then thaw them out before decorating.



Cookie Creations' Royal Icing


  1. Cookies: Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs and vanilla extract.
  2. Mix dry ingredients and add to butter mixture. Mix well. Chill for 1 to 2 hours.
  3. Roll to 1/4-inch thickness and cut into desired shapes. Bake at 350 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes.
