Old Fashioned Sugar Cookies Recipe / Sugar Cookies - Christmas Cookies

Here is my Old Fashioned Sugar Cookies for December month's Home Baker's Challenge. This recipe is adapted from food network.  

This is a perfect sweet treat to celebrate Christmas; we all especially my kids love these delicious snack!  

Thanks to Priya Suresh for starting the group and Priya Ranjit for hosting this month's challenge. To know more about Home Baker's Challenge click here.

This is my second recipe from Christmas bakes; special thanks to Priya Ranjit  for suggesting yummy recipes.

Yield - 2 dozen cookies


Unsalted Butter – 1 cup
Granulated sugar - 1 cup (powdered)
Eggs – 2
Vanilla essence – 2 tsp
All-purpose flour – 3 cups
Baking powder - 2 tsp
Salt – 1 tsp
Sprinkles - For decorating


In large bowl, beat butter and sugar on medium speed with beater until creamy.  Add eggs and vanilla; beat well.

In a separate  bowl; add the flour, baking powder and salt.  Mix well.

Add flour mixture to  the butter mixture and mix to form soft dough. Cover and chill the dough for 3 to 4 hours.

Preheat oven to 180 degree.

Roll out the dough and cut into shapes with cookie cutters or a knife.  Brush with milk and sprinkle with colored sugar / sprinkles.

Repeat the process for the remaining dough.

Place cookies in the baking tray (I usually bake cookies in an un-greased tray as the cookies have enough butter or oil in it).

Bake at 180 deg. C (temperature may vary for different ovens) for 10 to 12 minutes, in the preheated oven or until the edges turn slightly brown.

Allow to cool and store in an air tight container.


Baking time  will vary depending on the size and thickness of the cookies.
