Christmas Sugar Cookies

Season’s greetings!!! I decided to begin this month by posting a very simple and one of the most exciting parts of the Christmas celebration. Because, who could think of a Christmas dinner without the vibrant colours of the sugar cookies enticing you from the table? These simple yet elegant cookies are a must try, with their lucid aroma and their alluring vibrancy. The best part, this is the perfect opportunity to sit and spend time with your family, and decorate the cookies together. Go crazy with the frosting and sprinkles. Have a few laughs. Get into the Christmas spirit. Here’s the recipe for these irresistible Christmas Sugar Cookies.

Happy Baking!


  • 3 cups all-purpose flour, plus some for sprinkling
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • Food colouring
  • Vanilla Buttercream Frosting


  • In a bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.

  • In another bowl, mix the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the egg, vanilla extract and milk and mix well. Slowly add the dry ingredients into the prepared mixture and mix until totally combined.

  • Wrap the dough with a cling wrap. Refrigerate for 1 hour.

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F or 175°C. Prepare the baking sheet and prepare the frosting as shown in the recipe. Seperate into smaller bowls and add the colours of your choice.

  • Sprinkle some flour onto the surface and roll the dough until about ⅛” thick. Cut the shapes with the cookie cutter and place them on the prepared baking sheet. Pop them in the oven for about 8 to 10 minutes. Let cool

  • Let the cookies reach room temperature before decorating or the frosting will melt. Once cool, decorate the cookies with the frosting and sprinkles.

    Please don’t spoil me in this new year. They are tempting and now I can’t stop thinking about them. You have no idea how much self restraint I have shown in last year.

        Oh I love your receipt very much. The only reason I can resist them because except one recipe all contains egg.

  8. The cookies look great, and those bright vibrant colors make them more appealing, if that’s even possible. Cookie cutters must be “universal,” because I remember using the same set – star, tree and bell – when I was younger. In fact, they’re likely still in one of my mother’s cupboards. The cutters, not the cookies. The latter were so good, they didn’t even make it two days, and with those colors, yours look even more luscious!

    1. I’m glad you liked them! I wanted to get into the Christmas spirit as soon as December began, and what better way to speed up the celebrations than baking Christmas Sugar Cookies! The cutters must be an integral part of the packing, because everyone I know who has cookie cutters have these three shapes. Thanks for the continued interest.
