Holiday Recipe Spectacular -Sugar Cookie & Frosting Recipe

These cookies are a must on Christmas!  My friend gave me the frosting recipe for cakes…but my family loved it so much that we use it for our holiday cookies as well, is spreads thin & easy on the cookie
making decorating simple.  If you want to make this an even quicker recipe buy the bagged sugar cookie dough mix!



  • 1 1/2 cups butter, softened
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 5 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  1. In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Stir in the flour, baking powder, and salt. Cover, and chill dough for at least one hour (or overnight).
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Roll out dough on floured surface 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick. Cut into shapes with any cookie cutter. Place cookies 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets.
  3. Bake 6 to 8 minutes in preheated oven. Cool completely.

Butter Cream Frosting:                                        

1/2 Cup of Butter
1/2 Cup of Crisco
1 t. Vanilla
4 Cups Powdered Sugar
3 T. Milk

Cream together butter and crisco. Add vanilla and milk and mix.  Add 1 cup of powdered sugar at a time,  mixing on medium speed until well blended.  Whip until lightly fluffy (for cakes, you whip until really fluffy)
