12 Days of Christmas Cookies
My Grandmas Old Fashioned Soft Sugar Cookies are pillowy soft and delightfully chewy without even a hint of crunch! The cookies themselves aren’t overly sweet but they are begging, demanding even, to be iced!
This is the same Grandmother who brought us these Soft Molasses Sugar Cookies, so you know they are going to be good!
The cookies themselves have just a hint of vanilla, and they taste just like those impossibly soft cookies you buy at the store. Except they are homemade with love.
If I weren’t going to ship these cookies, I would have made a sweet, fresh strawberry frosting or a spiced cream cheese frosting.
But I did ship these little snowflakes out, so I went a more traditional route with a vanilla sugar cookie frosting.
The little bit of texture and incredibly sweet frosting pairs beautifully with the soft sugar cookies. It can easily be colored for any occasion.
This was surprisingly unfussy dough. It was very easy to work with and didn’t get inordinately hard in the refrigerator. It rolled out easily and didn’t need to be re-refrigerated before re-rolling.
Of all three rolled Christmas cookies that I have made, these are by far the easiest!
