Crisp Sugar Cookies

This is the fifth of twelve posts on my Family Heritage Christmas cookies. Every Monday from now until Christmas I will share my full collection of Christmas cookie recipes with you. My Christmas cookie collection consists of twelve different kinds of cookies. Every year I bake over 500 cookies and give them to our family and friends.

I have already posted about my Almond Crescents, no cook S’mores, Almond cups and Coconut Macaroons.

These cookies are crispy and almost taste like a sugar cookie with a butter taste.

1/2 cup butter softened
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1-3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tea. Baking powder
1/4 tea salt.
1 container of colored sprinkles.

1 cup confectioner’s sugar
1 to 2 tbs. milk
Red, Green, Yellow Blue Past or liquid food coloring

Cream butter and sugar. beat in egg and vanilla. Combine dry ingredients: gradually add to the creamed mixture. Cover and chill for 1 hour. On a lightly floured surface, roll out to 1/8- inch thickness. Cut with 2-1/2 in. cookie cutters. Place 1 in. apart on Parchment paper. Bake at 350 degrees for 8 to 1- minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on wire rack.

In small bowl, combine confectioners sugar and milk until smooth. separate sugar into smaller bowls for individual colors. Stir in desired food coloring. Lightly spread onto cooled cookies. Let stand until glaze is set. Makes about 3 doz. You can also coat with melted bark chocolate coating



  1. Now this is what I'm talking about! This is MY kind of cookie. This is MY kind of treat! Anytime you combine sweet and sugary, with pretty colors and add sprinkles,I'm in line for a taste. (My husband makes fun of me because when I order ice-crem, I still get rainbow sprinkles on top just like a little kid.) Well, not only do these cookies look good, but I have tried them, and they ARE good! Bloggers, prepare to print this recipe!!!
