These Classic Iced Sugar Cookies are a MUST MAKE this Holiday Season. They are super tender, topped with a delicious icing with hints of vanilla bean in each bite and fun sprinkles. A perfect Holiday treat.
No rolling here
One of the things that annoys me about sugar cookies is having to roll them out. Rolling pins and I don’t have the best relationship. I tend to roll things too thin, or not thin enough…it just never seems to be right. With these cookies though there is no rolling…that is one of the reasons why I love these cookies.
I also love how tender they are. Not so fragile they fall apart but they do melt in your mouth. Can’t get much better.
No time…no problem
My brother, Trey, who lives in Missouri and is a cattle rancher has been asking me to make these cookies for a couple of months so when my parents decided to go up there for a few days I decided to whip up a batch and surprise him. Of course, me being me, I didn’t decide this until the day they were leaving but it was okay because the beauty of these cookies is I was able to mix them, bake them, and ice them all in about 2 hours which let me get them to my parents just in time before they left.
I don’t know if I will ever go back to the traditional rolled sugar cookies again…they really are that good.
Classic Sugar Cookies… perfect anytime fo year
Whether you are looking for a fun summer cookie, or you want to keep this recipe until Christmas rolls back around (which will be here before we know it) trust me these will become a favorite for sure.
For some extra fun you could use some lemon extract to make a lemon sugar cookie or use almond extract for a lovely almond cookie, or for Christmas use peppermint extract…just replace 1/2 of the vanilla extract with the extract of your choice. I will be experimenting with several other flavors as the new seasons come…along with fun frosting colors (I use these gel colors for the best vibrant colors)…it kinda makes me giddy just thinking about it
I mean these cookies just scream spring and summer!
It time for Sugar Cookies!
