Christmas cookies + my baking tips

Uncategorized

What is Christmas without cookies for days?! It’s been rainy and cold for the past few days so this was the perfect indoor activity to keep us busy! Plus Sofia was napping so baking was almost therapeutic. 

This is a fun and easy cookie recipe that I love and the buttercream frosting is ridiculously amazing.  

Sugar cookies

Heat oven 375*

1 cup *softened* butter

1 cup sugar

1/4 teaspoon baking powder

1 egg

2.5 cups flour

1 tsp. Vanilla

Whip butter and sugar until fluffy, mix in the egg, vanilla and baking powder. Add flour until soft dough forms. 

  • You can chill your dough {I skipped that step} and for 0 mess, roll out on parchment paper and cut out shapes. 
  • Cook 8-10 or until cookies are slightly golden on the edges. 

Buttercream Frosting

1/2 cup soft butter

1/2 tsp vanilla

1-2 Tablespooms milk

1.5-2 cups powdered sugar

Whip on high until fluffy. Add food coloring for different colors and use mini chocolate chips for buttons! 
Enjoy!
