This Sugar Cookie and Sugar Cookie Icing Recipe has been a hit in my family and with guests for at least a decade! So every once in a while when I get super motivated for this project (and it is a project), I bust out the tattered and stained paper copies and get movin’. We hope you’ll enjoy!
3 cups all-purpose flour (I omitted about 1/4c of flour and that worked better for me).
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 tbls milk
powdered sugar, for rolling out dough (do not use flour)
Visit the Food Network site for the directions and enjoy!
1 cup confectioners’ sugar
2 tsps milk
2 tsps light corn syrup
1/4 tsp flavored extract, almond, mint, cherry, vanilla
assorted food coloring

Decorators tip: double the recipe and divide into 4 shallow bowls. Add food color to each bowl, a few drops each. Dip your cookies face down into the bowl and place on a wire rack to dry. Decorate your cookies with sprinkles before the cookie dries. Decorate your cookies with more icing after the initial icing dries.
