Its finally December and do you know what that means? Baking season! Ladies and gentlemen, this is my Super Bowl, from day to night, 24/7 all day on weekend, you can catch me in the kitchen whipping up a fresh batch of cookies for the holiday season. I have been baking cookies every since I could remember. I usually do the staples every year, but I love to spice it up by trying new recipes every year! These sugar cookies are all ways a go-to for fun Christmas activities and treats! This year I added some nutmeg in the icing sugar, and let me tell you, it tastes amazing! I don’t know why I haven’t been doing this the whole time!
Theres nothing like blasting Christmas music and dancing around the kitchen like a machine maneuvering different batches of cookies. Especially if you want to make the most of your time, you need to time which cookies need more baking time versus which cookies take faster to make and which ones need decorating. It’s a process I fully haven’t mastered yet, but I honestly get better every year so thats all I could ask for.
Gavin loves freshly baking cookies, and I mean, sure, who doesn’t love a warm home baked cookie? 🍪 He definitely does a good job eating them at the end of the day ! Follow the recipe down below to see how I created these delicious cookies. I doubled my recipe because I need the cookies to last all season long 😊 .
- 2 Cup All-Purpose Flour
- 1 tsp Baking Powder
- 1/2 tsp Salt
- 1/2 Cup Unsalted Butter
- 1 Cup Brown Sugar
- 1 Large Egg
- 1 tsp Vanilla
- Candies & Sprinkles
- 2 Cup Confection Sugar
- 1/4 Cup Milk
- 1/2 tsp Nutmeg
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
In a large bowl whist together the dry ingredients. Flour, salt, and baking powder
In the electric mixer beat the sugar and butter for about 3 minutes until it is nice and smooth. Add in the eggs and vanilla extract.
Let that stir for a bit. Gradually add in the dry ingredients.
Line the baking sheet with parchment paper. Grab your cookie cutter and cut out each of the cookies and place them on the baking sheet.
Bake each cookie sheet for about 8-10 minutes (I baked mine at 9 minutes and they came out perfect).
For the icing, mix in the confections sugar, nutmeg, and milk until it is a smooth mixture. For thicker consistency add more confection sugar, if you like it more thiner add in more milk to your liking.
Grab a pipping bad or spoon and spread it across your cookie and decorate.
