Hi guys! Don’t you just love sugar cookies, I love them, and sadly, I can’t eat them (I have to do the fodmap diet, till’ like december) They have wheat and dairy in them, but they are a great gift!! I love this recipe because they are super simple, you don’t have to refrigerate the dough or anything! I found this wonderful recipe on itsalwaysautumn.com and I love it! They taste great and are just as fun to make!
I mean, who doesn’t love sugar cookies with classic pink frosting! Two people I know had birthdays this week, so I gave them each some!
I tried a different recipe before this one and it was a disaster! The dough was much too sticky and wouldn’t cut out! This recipe is so much better! A big thanks to It’s always autumn for this recipe! My favorite picture by far is this one! I love our vintage measuring spoons!
Here are a couple of tips for making these cookies turn out perfect:
- LOTS of flour! Make sure that the surface that you are rolling it out on, your rolling pin, and your cookie cutter ALL have flour on them!
- Once you cut them out, peel all the extra surrounding dough off and I have found that using a spatula to pick them up and put them on the pan works best.
- If you don’t have a round cookie cutter, (like me 🙂 ) than a large mason jar lid works well.
- Have fun and enjoy the cookies! Soft & yummy sugar cookies2016-07-18 15:20:12Soft and chewy sugar cookies topped with delicious cream cheese frosting,Write a reviewPrep Time10 minCook Time10 minTotal Time20 minPrep Time10 minCook Time10 minTotal Time20 minFor the cookies
