Holiday Sugar Cookies
It's the Season of Sharing
Having a cookie exchange with friends? Try this fun sugar cookie recipe. A couple of tips for getting the best possible results:
Resist the urge to microwave the butter to soften it. This will result in sugar cookies that don't hold their shape. Butter should be room temperature when you're ready to mix your ingredients.
A good rule of thumb is to remove it from the fridge and let it stand for about an hour, or until it gives to gentle pressure.
It's a lot easier to work with chilled dough, especially if you're using cookie cutters. Sugar cookie dough should be chilled for 30 minutes in the fridge, or 15 minutes in the freezer if you're short on time.
