My Favorite Soft Sugar Cookie Recipe
Try My Favorite Soft Sugar Cookie Recipe and enjoy great and decorated cookies that you can give out to people who visit during the holidays as gifts or that you could even put on the Christmas tree if you have one and gobble them up on Christmas day. That is how we make My Favorite Soft Sugar Cookie Recipe and eat the results, by pulling them off the tree on Christmas morning as a very special treat on a very special day. This sugar cookie recipe can be eaten just plain, but it is also traditional to use this sugar cookie recipe to make decorated cookies. And you can decorate with anything.
This sugar cookie recipe is quick and easy to make. You can also put it in the fridge for the night in order to help the dough firm up somewhat, if it is quite soft when you first make it. As well, you can roll out the dough between pieces of wax paper in order to keep the dough from sticking to the counter top. This dough can also be flavored in different ways as you and your family enjoy it. For example, if you like the smell of lemon you could add lemon zest to the cookies as well as to the various icings that you use to decorate the cookies. If you enjoy orange scent, you can use orange zest and even blend a small amount of the orange juice or the lemon juice in to the sour cream before you blend that in to the sugar cookie recipe. These small changes can add up to great flavor as well as a terrific scent that you will smell when you hang these cookies up on the Christmas tree.
Be sure that the cookies are fully cooled before you begin decorating, or you might discover the icing and other things that you put on the cookies will melt and run. Of course, since the whole process is supposed to be fun, let the kids do what they will. No matter what the results are, the kids (and you) will love seeing these cookies on the tree, and will wait with great anticipation to pull them down from the tree, and gobble them up on Christmas morning. This is the stuff of Christmas.
So make this sugar cookies recipe whenever you want, and put the dough in the fridge for a few days and in the freezer for up to one month before you have to pull it out of the fridge or freezer and make the dough in to lovely cookies. That way you can make them whenever the mood hits, and as many or few as you wish.
