Halloween Sugar Cookies!

Halloween is in one week! And that means it’s time for the goodies to be made!! This sugar cookie recipe is SO easy and makes the BEST cookies!!

Recipe

Sugar Cookies:

Yield: 3 dozen Sugar Cookies

Prep time: 30min

Baking time: 6-8min

Total Time: 38min

Ingredients:

• 1 Cup Unsalted Butter

• 1 Cup White Granulated Sugar

• 1 tsp. Vanilla extract

• 1/2 tsp. almond extract

• 1 Egg

• 2 tsp Baking Powder

• 1/2 tsp Salt

• 3 Cups All Purpose Flour

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350° F.
  2. In the bowl of your mixer cream butter and sugar until smooth, at least 3 minutes
  3. Beat in extracts and egg.
  4. In a separate bowl combine baking powder and salt  with flour and add a little at a time to the wet ingredients. The dough will be very stiff. If it becomes too stiff for your mixer turn out the dough onto a countertop surface. Wet your hands and finish off kneading the dough by hand.
  5. DO NOT CHILL THE DOUGH. Divide into workable batches, roll out onto a floured surface and cut. You want these cookies to be on the thicker side (closer to 1/4 inch rather than 1/8).
  6. Bake at 350 for 6-8 minutes. Let cool on the cookie sheet until firm enough to transfer to a cooling rack.

Cream Cheese Frosting:

1/4 Cup Softened Butter

• 4oz. Softened Cream Cheese

• 3 Cups Powdered Sugar

• 3 tbsp Milk

• 1 tsp Vanilla

• 1/2 tsp Almond Extract

Mix all ingredients together

Optional: add food coloring for orange frosting & sprinkles!
