It's the most wonderful time of the year. With family and friends and food galore, and of course, cookies!
Here's another family favorite:
My Sister's Sugar Cookies
2 sticks of butter, softened
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla extra
2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cream of tartar
Mix together the first four ingredients and beat until smooth. Combine remaining three ingredients and slowly add to the mixture.
Refrigerate dough for 3 to 12 hours (it is easier to work with the dough once its chilled).
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Roll out dough on a floured surface and cut into desired shapes.
Bake for 5-7 minutes. Allow cookies to cool.
3 1/2 cups of powdered sugar
5 tablespoons of butter, softened
1 tsp vanilla extract
Milk (just enough to make a creamy frosting)
Mix together the above ingredients and spread onto of cookies. Add food coloring or sprinkles as desired.
