The Best Sugar Cookies (and Icing!)

I'm not kidding when I tell you that these are THE best sugar cookies in the world.  They've been tried, they've been tested and they never fail to disappoint.  The recipe makes a TON (I guessed at 72) and they are pretty time consuming, but it's SO worth it - you'll have plenty to either share or freeze for later.

Main Ingredients

2 cup butter, softened

3 eggs 2 1/4 teas. vanilla

4 1/2 teas. baking powder

2 cup sugar

4 tbsp. milk

3/4 teas. salt

6 cup flour


1Mix in order. Chill dough 1/2 hour (you can make these a day or two prior to cooking, just store in fridge). Roll out dough to about 1/4" on a heavily floured surface and cut into desired shapes. Bake approx. 6 minutes at 375 (my oven cooks fast, so I only cook mine for 5 minutes depending on how thick they are - they should be just barely - if at all - golden brown on the bottoms). I know I already said it, but this recipe seriously makes a LOT of cookies!! 

2For the icing, you'll need: powered sugar, a small amount of milk to create desired consistency (you need way less milk that you'd think!  Consistency should be similar to thick pudding.) *a drop or two of almond extract and color as desired.

3Mix to desired consistency, add extract if using. Separate into smaller bowls, add coloring, mix well. Then decorate, let dry, enjoy and SHARE!!! *optional - I love them with and without the almond extract!!
