A classic and best Sugar Cookies recipe, soft and chewy, a perfect base for frosting, sprinkles and decorations …a sinfully sweet Christmas treat !
Baking is much a Christmas tradition as stockings and carols.And Sugar cookies are a rage in the Christmas season. Nothing beats an iced Sugar cookie made from scratch…. A sinfully sweet Christmas treat.
Our house is filled with the Christmas spirit and the mother and daughter trio brought more cheer by baking these classic old fashioned sugar cookies and decorating them. These pretty cookies are a classic addition to the holiday cookie tray.
By the time we completed decorating them it was past midnight and the kitchen counter was full of sugar,butter,icing,sprinkles ,colours but then we had a whale of a time cutting them out in festive shapes and icing them…the right way to get into the holiday spirit and bonding with each other.
Today evening our house guests arrive for the holidays and my daughters are over the moon planning their days with the elder cousin. Makes me remember my childhood days with our cousins and the gala time we had in the holidays.
This cookie recipe doesn’t ask for chilling the cookie dough, but if you still want to chill it you can go ahead. As for decoration a little corn syrup can be added to the sugar mix to give a sheen to the icing but it’s optional.
This recipe is adapted from a friend’s blog Naive cook cooks.
These pretty sugar cookies go as an entry for Helen of CasaCostello for her baking event Bake of the week.
Enjoy the soft, chewy, delicious cookies and a Merry Christmas !
