I made these for a New Year’s eve party and am naming them this … for lack of a more creative name. Debbie, JP and Andrew tasted and approved them before I served them to a larger group. JP and Jenni decorated them.
I make half the dough recipe and use the whole frosting recipe for the half batch.
3/4 lb. butter (3 sticks)
1 1/2 c sugar
1 T vanilla
4 c Flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
Blend butter & sugar.
Beat eggs with vanilla and add to butter mixture.
Blend flour and baking soda. Mix in slowly into butter mixture.
Chill for half an hour. Divide into three balls. Work with one at a time while keeping the rest in refrigerator.
Roll out on floured surface or between wax paper. Using cookie cutters to form into shapes. Place on cookie sheets covered with parchment paper.
Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes until a light golden color.
Sugar cookie icing:
2 cups xxx sugar
1 T butter
2 T water
2 T corn syrup
1 t clear vanilla
