Christmas Sugar Cookies Recipe


Christmas just isn’t the same without some holiday baking! Set aside some time this month to put on some Christmas music and have some fun getting creative in the kitchen! Today we’re sharing a simple and delicious sugar cookie recipe that will delight your friends and family at every holiday part this year. Check it out…


  • 2 sticks unsalted butter
  • 1 c. sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1½ tsp. vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 3¼ c. all-purpose flour


  1. In a large bowl, beat together softened unsalted butter and sugar until fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, and then add vanilla extract and salt. Slowly add all-purpose flour, beating until ingredients are combined. (Dough will be a little bit sticky.)
  2. Divide dough into 4 parts and cover each in plastic wrap, patting into small squares. Chill until firm, around 2-3 hours or overnight.
  3. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. On a floured surface, roll out dough. Cut out cookies using fun holiday-shaped cutters. Transfer cookies to a parchment-lined baking sheet and chill for 10-15 minutes.
  4. Bake until lightly browned, about 10-12 minutes. Cool completely on pan or wire rack before decorating.
