I like this one. They are easy and yummy. And these gingerbread cookies are a fan favorite. Squishy and delish.

I like this recipe. I usually use it instead of typical sugar cookies, since they are a lot softer. Hope you like it!

This is a family favorite and is one of the first cookies I learned how to bake. We make them for all kinds of holidays: Christmas, Valentine's Day, etc. using a variety of cookie cutters.

Old Fashioned Sugar Cookies

cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
cup milk
3 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
Pinch of salt

Cream butter in a large bowl. Add sugar and continue to cream. Add egg and vanilla, beat well. Combine dry ingredients and add alternately to mixture with milk. Chill. Roll dough on a floured board at least inch thick. Cut dough into desired shapes. Bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes until bottoms are lightly browned. Frost after cooled.


1 lb. powdered sugar
teaspoon salt
cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
cup butter, softened

In a bowl combine all ingredients. Beat well until smooth and creamy. Scrape sides of the bowl often. It frosting is too stiff to spread easily beat in a few drops of milk.
Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.
