Sugar Cookies
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • ½ cup white corn syrup
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 3¼ cups flour
  • Perfect Piping Buttercream Recipe

  1. For the sugar cookies, in a stand up mixer cream butter and sugars together and then beat in eggs until well mixed. Add vanilla and syrup and mix well. Whisk together dry ingredients and add slowly, mixing well until all is incorporated. Chill the dough well, best if done overnight. Roll out dough onto a well floured surface and cut into various shapes. Bake at 325F for 8-10 min. on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Let cool 5 min. on the tray and then remove to further cool on a cooling rack.
  2. For the icing I am going to direct you to The Creative Bite as she has an amazing Perfect Piping Buttercream Recipe that we used for this recipe.
  3. Have fun decorating using additional items like sprinkles, dragees and other decorations if desired.
