  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

Sugar Cookie Directions

  1. Mix together the flour and baking powder.
  2. Add 2 sticks of butter. (I softened mine to the point of it being almost melted in the microwave.)
  3. Add the sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract.
  4. Divide the dough into two sections.
  5. Divide the dough again, so you have four different sections to work with.
  6. On a floured surface, roll the dough out.
  7. Use cookie cutters to cut cookies.
  8. Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 10-12  minutes.

Sugar Cookie Icing Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup of water

Sugar Cookie Icing Directions

  1. Beat the confectioners sugar and water until it’s blended.
  2. Add food coloring if you want it tinted.
  3. Use a knife or decorating bags to decorate the cookies.
  4. TIP: For thicker frosting, add more confectioners sugar.
  5. ANOTHER TIP: If you put the cookies in the refrigerator for a bit after icing them, the icing will harden… and it’s delicious!
