Hey everyone! Christmas is coming and so are my recipes! My first festive recipe is these amazing Christmas Sugar Cookies!
These cookies are the real deal. So crispy and taste heavenly! I made them in small pieces because the recipe has butter and sugar so I can enjoy and satisfy my cravings! (It’s the holidays anyway no one should count their calories right? Right..)
These Christmas cookies are an upgrade of my Vanilla and Chocolate Petits Fours! These are crispier and perfect to decorate for the holidays!

Christmas Sugar Cookies
- 2 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 cup sugar
- 3/4 cup (170g) cold butter cubed
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 large eggs
- 2-3 tbsp milk if needed
Sugar glaze for 30 cookies
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 2-3 tbsp milk or water
- Food coloring
In a food processor, combine flour, sugar, salt, baking powder and vanilla.
Add the cold cubed butter and pulse just until the mix is crumbly (chunks of butter are still appearing).
Add the eggs and pulse for few seconds until dough comes together. If mixture is too dry, add a bit of milk but you might not need to. Do not over mix.
Cover the dough with a cling wrap and chill for a minimum of 2-3 hours.
Once chilled, roll out half of the dough on a well floured surface to desired thickness. Cut the shapes with some cookie cutters and transfer them to a baking tray lined with parchment (this is a soft dough so work fast).
Bake in preheated oven (160°C) for 15-20 mins or until the edges are golden brown. Set aside to cool.
Combine the powdered sugar and milk. Divide the mixture, add in your food coloring, transfer to a zip lock bag and start decorating!
