BEST Sugar Cookies

December 8, 2013Teresa

Teresa’s Bake Shop – Christmas Cookie Extravaganza – 2013

These really are the BEST Sugar Cookies you will ever eat! Quite a boast, I know, but I can back it up. I think what makes these cookies so spectacular is they have LOTS of sugar and they have both vanilla and almond extract in the batter. Your heard that right. Almond extract is my secret ingredient in these luscious cookies.

These cookies literally melt in your mouth, which is probably why they are my favorite cookie of all time. No kidding. They really are. We absolutely adore these heavenly cookies, and every time we bring them somewhere, everyone always wants more! They are incredibly rich and sweet.

We make these cookies frequently for our Christmas Cookie Extravaganzas, but they are very labor intensive. Especially when you bake 5 or 6 batches at a time like we usually do (300-400 cookies). I made five batches of the cookies and eight batches of the icing so no matter how you shake it out, it’s a lot of work.

Plus, of course, there have to be sprinkles on the cookies! 🙂 It does take a long time to frost all those cookies by hand and then sprinkle jimmies or sprinkles over the top. It works best to sprinkle the jimmies on top of the cookie right after you ice each cookie and before the icing has a chance to dry, set up, and harden. After that, the sprinkles won’t adhere to the icing. So there’s about a 5-10 minute window and then all bets are off!

When we lived in Florida back in the 1980s, our neighbors across the street brought a plate of these wonderful cookies to us for Christmas one year. Debbie’s recipe only called for pressing the cookies with sugar from the bottom of a glass–no icing. These cookies were amazing to the taste buds. But they became sensational when I added one of my mom’s icing recipes from an old 4-H Dessert cookbook, circa 1960s.

BEST Sugar Cookies are sensational as you will find out when you make them. I’m sure anyone who’s ever eaten these cookies will attest to how wonderful these cookies are. (For the record, that’s been hundreds of people over the last three decades) So, if you want a fabulous sugar cookie with icing, then consider making BEST Sugar Cookies at your next opportunity. You will be lucky if you get any. They will be gobbled down in no time! Seriously.

Back in early November (2018) my husband made a stop at a church in Houston. He always drops off cookies to friends there. They got to talking about my blog and my most requested Christmas cookie. John told him it had to be my Sugar Cookies. He asked for some! So I made four batches of these amazing cookies and stashed them in our freezer. He delivered them about a week ago (December 2018), just in time for everyone to enjoy them for the holidays. Best Sugar Cookies are still our most requested and favorite cookie recipe ever. Love these jewels…. 🙂

Cream ingredients with an electric mixer until very smooth and creamy.

I usually color my icing. When I make these around Halloween I use orange or purple icing, around Easter I use pink and yellow. Here, I’ve added red food coloring. (Food coloring actually works better than gel).

Spread frosting with a knife. I still do this the old-fashioned way with a knife. I really don’t like piping the icing on.

Now add sprinkles or jimmies. You need to do this right away or the icing dries and hardens up and you won’t be able to get the sprinkles to adhere to the icing after that. I use about one teaspoon of sprinkles per cookie and 1/4 teaspoon colored sugar per cookie.

Gently press the sprinkles, jimmies or colored sugar into the icing to help it adhere better.

Place cookies back on cooling racks when finished so the icing sets up. It will harden slightly, then the cookies are ready to serve or pack up to freeze in containers for later.

I had a lot of different kinds of sprinkles in my pantry so I pulled them all out to use on these cookies.

Instructions
COOKIES:
  1. Mix butter, oil, sugars, extracts, eggs salt, cream of tartar and baking soda with an electric mixer until very well combined.
  2. Add flour and stir into sugar mixture until ingredients are thoroughly mixed.
  3. Chill dough at least one hour.
  4. Roll cookie dough into balls.
  5. Place on greased cookie sheets.
  6. Bake at 350° for 12-15 minutes or until cookies are done.
  7. (See notes below).
ICING:
  1. Thoroughly mix confectioner’s sugar, powdered milk and salt.
  2. Cream shortening and dry ingredients.
  3. Gradually add water and beat at high speed until fluffy.
  4. (Can add food coloring and sprinkles if decorating for the holidays).
Recipe Notes

NOTE: Recipe may be cut in half.

NOTE: If you don’t wish to add icing, place cookie dough balls on prepared cookie sheets. Dip the bottom of a glass in sugar and press cookies down to flatten them. Bake as directed above.

NOTE: I used about 1 ½ tablespoonfuls of cookie dough for each cookie.

NOTE: Rotate racks every 8 minutes of baking time. My cookies took about 22-24 minutes to bake completely.

NOTE: I used about 1 to 2 tablespoonfuls of icing on each cookie. I used about one teaspoon sprinkles and/or about ÂĽ teaspoon of colored sugar for each cookie. I very gently patted down the sprinkles or sugar into the icing on top of each cookie so the sprinkles and/or sugar would adhere to the icing better.

NOTE: You need about 1 ½ batches of icing for each batch of cookies.

    What is your procedure for freezing cookies,and how long c an you freeze them? Are there any cookies that cannot be frozen?
    Freezing cookies would be a great help during the holidays, but I have never had the nerve to try it……..always afraid it would change the taste.
    Thank you very much.

      Hi Pamela. I freeze almost every cookie that has been up on my blog. They actually taste like you made them that day once you defrost them! We buy plastic containers at Walmart–clear with teal colored trim. They have a burp function on the top to let out air. I layer the cookies in the containers so they are NOT overlapping. I separate each layer with waxed paper. I have had cookies taste just like new that have been in the freezer for a year (forgot about them!). Generally speaking, though, it’s best to try to use them up within two to three months as they can begin to dry out. I personally, have never had that happen in any of my freezers. But that’s what they tell you can happen. I’ve never had the freezer change the taste either. But if your freezer has an odd smell, you may need to clean it out really well with a vinegar solution. I always change out baking soda in my freezers – every six months or so, too. That seems to keep things smelling fresh.

      Hi, Andrea, I’ve never made them that way because the dough is not that stiff. You can try it, but I’ve never rolled out the dough before.
