Quite Possibly The Best Sugar Cookies

A big happy HELLO 
to you, friends!

How are you on this lovely February day?
I sincerely hope you are well.

I thought I would share another sweet recipe with you
and this is one that is sure to be a hit.
Normally I don't call things "the best," but these cookies, well. . .
they could quite possibly be the best!
You know those sugar cookies at the grocery store. . .
the ones that can be found at the bakery with frosting and sprinkles?
They are the cookies that melt in your mouth the second you take a bite-
it's almost like eating air.
Every once in a while I will buy them as a "special treat" 
for my husband, son. . .and myself :)
Well, I found this recipe that tastes just as good {if not better}
as those store-bought sugar cookies.




The cookie itself is oh-so-soft.
Yes, the kind that melts in your mouth
and the frosting is perfectly sweet. . .
the kind of sweet that puts a big smile on your face
and a happy skip in your step.




Ingredients for the cookies:

2 cups sugar
1 cup butter, softened
3 eggs
6 tablespoons milk
5 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
5 teaspoons baking powder

* * * * *

Ingredients for the frosting:

1/4 cup butter, softened
4 oz cream cheese, softened
dash of salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups Confectioners' sugar
3 tablespoons milk
food coloring, optional

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
and lightly grease a baking sheet.

For the yummy in my tummy cookies,
cream together the sugar, butter, eggs, and milk
until well combined.
Mix the flour, salt, and baking power in a separate bowl
and then slowly add to the sugar mixture
until just combined.

Roll out small amounts of the dough at a time
to about 3/8-inch thickness.
**You will need lots of flour for rolling out**
Cut with cookie cutters
and place on a baking sheet.
Bake for about 10-minutes or until the cookies are done
and remove from pan immediately.
The cookies will be light in color-
you don't want them to be lightly brown!

For the frosting
cream the butter and cream cheese.
Then mix in the remaining ingredients.
If you so desire you can tint the frosting with food coloring.

Spread the frosting on the cookies
and chill for at least 45-minutes {if you want}.
I think they taste better when they have chilled for a bit.
You should get about 4 dozen cookies
depending on the cookie cutter size you use.
Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.




Now pick out a favorite tea cup of yours
and brew yourself a nice cup of tea. . .or coffee.
After all that baking you deserve a little quiet time.




Grab yourself a cookie. . .or two
and simply enjoy.




I shall do the same, my friends.
Mmmm. . .

Once again, please know that your visits and comments 
brighten my day.
Thank you so very much for taking the time to drop in.
Sweet hugs to you!

Those cookies looks as good if not better than the store bought ones, and I bet (if I was a betting girl) they are even better.
Thanks for sharing the recipe, Stephanie!

Pam~ Virginia Retro said...

Oh the sugar cookies look so delicious. I'm not the best baker when it comes to rolling out dough, but I may need to try these.

Sweet additions to your Etsy shop. My swap friend loved the sweet goodies I included from your shop. :)

Cynthia said...

Oh, mmmmm!!! These do look delicious, and your description just has me drooling! I am pinning this one, Stephanie, for the recipe as well as the pretty photographs with your teacup. Did this come from the book you're showing? The pretty things you make, too, are just as sweet, and it's always a delight to visit here. Thank you for sharing this!

Hello Stephanie,

We really enjoy a good soft sugar cookie around here. I have a recipe that I've used for 30+ years, but I'm excited to try this recipe of yours because of how much you enjoy the cookies.

I really really like that beautiful tea cosy that you have pictured. I checked your etsy shop and see that it is for a large tea pot. Mine is more like two and a half cups. Maybe another time.

Creations By Cindy said...

These cookies look delightful . I will be trying these out for sure . And all your little pretty things you've made are so sweet . Happy Wednesday dear lady . Hugs and blessings , Cindy

Linda @ A La Carte said...

I love a soft sugar cookie and these do look like they could melt in your mouth. You make the cutest little things. Thanks for being such a blessing in my life with you joy and friendship.

My thrift store addiction said...

Stephanie, these cookies looks so delicious, and as always your table setting is just delightful. Sharing on my FB page! Blessings to you, sweet friend!

kitty@ Kitty's Kozy Kitchen said...

The cookies look oh-so-good, Stephanie! My grands and I make a soft sugar cookie, too, but we have to chill the dough and then shape into balls. I like the idea of rolling your cookies out without chilling. I can just imagine the melt-in-your-mouth deliciousness.
All your pretties from your shop are just delightful, and of course, have your lovely touches and embellishments. I've never seen Anne of Green Gables fabric....it's charming!
Happy Wednesday, angel friend! ❤️

Simply Linda said...

Always, always a delight to visit you, sweet Stephanie. Sending you lots of smiles and hugs, my friend.

Shoregirl said...

I have a yummy sugar cookie recipe too! Yours look delicious and your handmade pretties are beautiful!!

Linda Shukri said...

I always love your posts and they always bring a smile to my face. :-) Love the Anne of Green Gables tea cozy, etc. I enjoy being close to "Anne" while I am living here on PEI for the time being. :-) I have a poster of "her" on my sewing room wall from a number of years ago - one of the actresses that portrayed "Anne" in the musical.

Cheryl said...

Oh, how pretty! And, the cookies look so yummy! Thanks for sharing, sweet friend. :) God bless you.

Mildred said...

Hi Sweet Stephenie! These cookies look light as air and OH, so good! Your photos are simply beautiful. Your crafts in your shop are lovely. I will have to take a closer look at your tablerunner, cozies etc. Oh, and lavender sachets - they remind me so of mother.
God bless you and your family! xo

AnnMarie aka Vintage Junkie aka NaNa said...

I can tell by the ingredients....a cup of butter, cream cheese in the frosting....that these cookies are scrumptious! I thought I had the very best sugar cookie recipe but I will have to try these and compare. Lots of pretty pictures in this post!

That Anne of Green Gables fabric is so pretty! You have such a special touch when it comes to crafting. Have a blessed and beautiful rest of the week.

Hugs,

SpicingUpIdaho said...

Besides the fact that the pictures of these cookies look soft, tender and perfectly sweet, just the fact that you think they are the best, I will have to give them a try - after all, how could you go wrong with all that butter and cream cheese! Your pictures with the tea party book and beautiful light are delightful, as always! And that Anne of Green Gables fabric, wow! Love it! Your new table runners are amazing, and all the other special things you have made. You make me tired just looking through all you have created! How do you do it all? Blessings and hugs to you dear friend, you are an amazing woman, and such a precious friend, may the Lord's richest blessings be with you :)

Libby said...

Stephanie, these cookies look so delicious! It's been eons since I've made any homemade cookies, and I've never made sugar cookies before. I will live vicariously through the pages of your blog. You make the best treats.

Elizabeth said...

Hello, dear Stephanie!

I just wanted to pop in for a little visit as well as let your know that over the past week I have tried two of your latest recipes that you have shared. First, for our quiet evening at home watching the Super Bowl, I made the adorably cute Confetti Cake Batter cookies, and oh my, they were so divine! I am a lover of soft cookies, so they were perfect!

And secondly, I prepared an early Valentine's Day dessert for my family, as we will be out of town beginning the day after Valentine's. I made the lovely and sweet Strawberry Cheesecake Tartlets. And, again, oh my! They were so light and fluffy and full of fruity goodness! We all loved them! I made along with our favorite chocolate cream pie, which I made in a mini variety as well. So cute and fun!

Anyways, I just wanted to thank you for sharing the recipes and inspiration! My whole family thanks you for sharing such delicious recipes {{smiles}}

Wishing you a lovely remainder of the week, dear friend!

With love and hugs,
Libby

Lea said...

Beatrice Euphemie said...

Sugar cookies are my hubby's all-time favorites, dear Stephanie! I'm sure he is going to love these! Such a pretty little 'tea' you have shared with your darling tea-cup and plate, too. Oh my, your little shop has so many charming things! That tea cozy is wonderful and the little sachet is so sweet. Hope you have a lovely and blessed weekend, my dear. Sending hugs xo Karen

Conniecrafter said...

My hubby said that is one of the things he misses most since we have gone on our diet is my sugar cookies, I wonder if I should surprise him with these for a Valentine gift this year.
Beautiful creations in your store!!
Have a lovely weekend with your sweet family!

Brenda said...

Hi Stephanie,
what a lovely post, with so much beautiful craftwork in it, it is good to spend time doing what you enjoy doing (I had to skip quickly over the gorgeous recipe as I am trying to get myself on a bit of a diet). The older I get the busier I get, and your blog is encouraging me to get back to other things that I have always enjoyed doing, painting in particular.
God bless.

Red Rose Alley said...

Stephanie, your sugar cookies look simply wonderful. You know, they are my favorite cookie at Christmas time. These look so soft, and the light pink frosting really makes them I'm sure. You have lots of goodies in your etsy shop right now. The handmade sachets in the Anne of Green Gables fabric are very nice. And the little bird bag is the sweetest thing. I love those table runners too. Keep creating, Stephanie, and keep shining your light, dear one.

Your Sunday post was so special as well, and the candle reminds me of the light that you give every day, Stephanie.

love to you on this Valentine's Day.

Stephanie, just wanted to stop by and tell you to be sure and get in on my tea giveaway -- just 8 hours left to enter. And these gorgeous cookies are just what I'd like to be having with my tea this afternoon. They do look "perfect!" I only ever frost cookies for a very special occasion, but I might just have to make some for myself.

Big Rigs 'n Lil' Cookies said...

You always have such beautiful colors! The table runner is so bright and cheerful.
And those cookies? When I am off this 30 day diet, those should be the first thing I sink my teeth into!

Sandy said...

These cookies look fabulous!
I love your makes and enjoy seeing them. Unfortunately for me, I am behind in my snooping blogs. You had a sachet make on here that I would have bought in a heart. A lavender sachet with several flowers and lace hanging off the bottom. Wow!
Sandy xx
