Soft Sugar Cookies

IMG_4141Our top 5 easiest go to cookie recipes continues with our Soft Sugar Cookies. These cookies are amazingly, soft and melt in your mouth! We like to make these cookies for holidays. We recently made these cookies for St. Patrick’s Day.

  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 – 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp soda
  • 3 & 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt

IMG_4142Cream sugar and butter together. Add egg and beat well. Sift dry ingredients and add alternately with milk. Roll out to 1/4 inch thick and place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 400* for about 8 minutes.

Our favorite frosting type is a buttercream based frosting.

1 cube of butter then add powder sugar and milk until you have a thick consistency. When you pull up the spoon the frosting should create peaks. You want the frosting to spreadable enough, but able to hold its form.

You can add any color or extract flavoring to the frosting you’d like. Our favorite is a mint flavor.
