Welcome to my Blogmas! I love Christmas so much, and the best way to celebrate is with Christmas related posts every day at 5pm WordPress time until the 25th! Hope you enjoy!
Today I am sharing one of my all time favourite Christmas recipes! These rolled sugar cookies are the perfect thing to make, decorate and eat at any time of the year, but something about using Christmas cookie cutters and icing them all fancy just makes it even better. This recipe was from a much, much bigger one, that I have quartered to make the amount you see here, which is more than enough for one batch I think!
3/8 cup softened butter (1/4 + 1/8)
1/2 cups white sugar
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1 & 1/4 cups plain flour (+ extra for kneading and rolling)
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
Cream butter and sugar together, then add the wet ingredients. Mix together before slowly adding the sifted dry ingredients.
When all combined, cover with cling wrap and chill for at least an hour (overnight is perfect).
After flouring a surface and the rolling pin, take the chilled dough out and roll between 1/4 inch & 1/2 inch thick.
Cut out cookie shapes, and bake one inch apart for 6-8 minutes. Let completely cool before icing.
I know these look like they were decorated by a 3-year-old, and these were the best ones I did. Hey, the fun is in the process! Plus, they taste amazing. A great way to enjoy these is with my peppermint hot chocolate recipe!
Merry Christmas, come chat!
