Making cut-out sugar cookies and frosting them can be quite a process. Between making the dough, letting it chill for a few hours, rolling out the dough, cutting out the shapes, making a mess with the flour, baking the cookies, letting them cool before you frost, making the frosting, and eventually frosting the cookies, you could spend a whole day making cookies!
This recipe comes from my step-mom, who has been making these sugar cookies for every possible occasion for as long as I can remember. She doesn’t wait for Christmas to roll around every year. Oh no…she makes them for Christmas, Halloween, Valentine’s Day, and Easter. Her recipe has been praised by everyone who has tried them and I finally got my hands on the recipe. The cookies are soft, buttery, and they literally melt in your mouth. I made them for Easter and if you have an free Saturday afternoon coming up, give this recipe a try! They are a yummy addition to any Easter basket and frosting the cookies can be made into a fun family project.
Combine the butter and powdered sugar, then vanilla extract. Slowly add the milk until desired consistency is reached. Add food coloring to desired color and decorate away!
