Soft & yummy sugar cookies!

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!Soft, yummy sugar cookies with delicious cream cheese frosting!

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!Soft and yummy sugar cookies topped with pink cream cheese frosting!
Here are a couple of tips for making these cookies turn out perfect:

  1.  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!
  2. 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.
  3. If you don’t have a round cookie cutter, (like me ๐Ÿ™‚ ) than a large mason jar lid works well.
  4. Have fun and enjoy the cookies!
