Christmas Sugar Cookie Recipe


I have made this exact recipe over and over.  It's the best!  Here's what I did wrong this time around, though-- I used margarine.  Always use butter!  I only had a little butter left and needed to save it for cooking dinner.  I had just the right amount of margarine, so I thought it would be an even swap.  Nope.  These cookies are still good, but they're not the same.  They're not as dense or chewy and didn't hold their shape quite as well.

You definitely need to make these cookies-- just please use butter!

I used Wilton sprinkles and Betty Crocker cookie icing.  Easy!  If you're looking for intricate frosting designs like all those Facebook videos, you'll have to look elsewhere.  I wish I had the talent.  All that matters is taste, right? 😉

The dark brown cookies on the top rack are a Paleo experiment.
I'm still working on perfecting the recipe/ingredient swaps. 😄

Sugar cookies are a fun holiday tradition.  Harlow decorated some later that night...when she wasn't busy eating the icing off the spoon.

I hope you and your family have a Merry Christmas!
