The Perfect Christmas Cookie

The Perfect Christmas Sugar Cookie

One of my favorite gifts I got for Christmas this year was a Cookie Pro Ultra II! This cookie press was perfect to make the last of the cookies for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day get togethers. Some cookie batters do not work well for making shapes, as they spread and bake uneven. This cookie recipe is perfect for sugar or snickerdoodle cookies and will keep their shape even after you bake them.

Ingredients

Sugar: 1 1/2 cups

Butter: 1 stick, softened

Egg: 1

Flour:  2 3/4 cups

Baking Soda: 1 teaspoon

Cinnamon: mix a tablespoon of cinnamon with the same proportion of sugar if making snickerdoodle

Decorative Sugar: if making sugar cookies!

Directions

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees before starting to make your batter. Cream your sugar and softened butter with your mixer on low.

Then mix in your egg and baking soda. After these are thoroughly mixed, fold in your flour. I then took out my cookie press and easily added the dough and started with the heart plate. This was my first attempt, so the shape of the heart didn’t come out perfectly, but once I got the hang of it the flowers and trees came out much better!

Add your cinnamon sugar mix or any decorative sugar before placing these fun shapes into the oven!

These only take 6-7 minutes since they are so small. Keep an eye on them and adjust the baking time if you see that yours are cooking too quickly.

I took mine off of the tray and let them cool on a cooling rack while I kept changing my plates to make new shapes! I found the flowers worked the best, so these cookies don’t have to be used just during the holidays! They came out very moist, added a little creativity to our cookie tray, and are quite tasty dunking cookies!!
