12 Days of Christmas Cookies: Day Four

I make & decorate sugar cookies with my family every year. I'm sure we'll still make them when Mack and I go to visit for Christmas, but I decided to make some of my own a little early this year. They're a super fun (and delicious) tradition!

Sugar Cookies:


1/2 c butter

1 1/2 c sugar

2 eggs

1 tsp vanilla

3 1/2 c flour

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 c sour cream


Cream together the butter and sugar. Add in eggs and vanilla. Whisk together dry ingredients. Alternatively add the dry ingredients and sour cream, mixing between each addition. Bake at 425 degrees for 4-6 minutes. 



1/2 c butter

1 lb powdered sugar

2 tsp vanilla

4 tbsp milk

1/4 tsp salt


Cream together butter and sugar. Add in rest of ingredients and mix until fully incorporated. Portion and color icing to your liking and decorate!
