We love baking for the holidays and the best thing that we make is sugar cookies. We have all sorts of cookie recipes but no matter what we make, we always have to make sugar cookies or Snickerdoodles as well. My kids love mixing it all together, then rolling out dough, using their favorite star cookie cutters and then icing the cookies. My son's favorite part is adding the sprinkles. We hope that you love this Iced Sugar Cookies Recipe.

Iced Sugar Cookies Recipe



  1. Cream together butter, sugar, eggs, soda, oil and salt. Add in vanilla and mix well.
  2. Mix in flour and chill in refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
  3. Sprinkle flour on your cutting surface and roll out dough to about 1/4 inch in thickness. I use Pompeian Grapeseed Oil spray on my hands before cutting the dough.
  4. Cut with cookie cutters, spray baking sheet with Pompeian Grapeseed Oil, place cookies on pan and bake at 350 degrees for 8-11 minutes.
  5. Let cookies cool completely before adding icing.
    For the icing, mix powdered sugar and milk well with fork. (For more of a thin glaze use more milk, to make it thicker like an icing add more powdered sugar).
  6. If you would like a sparkly finish you can add sugar crystals to the top of the icing (I used silver). Just make sure you add them quickly before the icing hardens.

These cookies are also perfect without icing. They have a light taste of sugar and butter so they really don't need frosting but the iced frosting really tastes amazing on the cookies. We hope that you love this Iced Sugar Cookies Recipe. Happy baking!
