A simple, easy to follow recipe to make light and fluffy sugar cookies, perfect for any occasion but work so well at Christmas time with all the amazing festive cutters and pretty white icing!

Cook time: 10 Minutes

Difficulty: Easy!

    You will need...

  • For The Cookies:
  • 140g Icing Sugar
  • 1tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Egg Yolk
  • 250g Butter (cut into small chunks)
  • 375g Flour
  • For the Royal Icing:
  • 225g Icing Sugar
  • 1 Egg White
  • Cold Water

Preheat the oven to 190oC. Using a wooden spoon or a mixer, mix together the butter, icing sugar, vanilla and the egg yolk, setting the egg white aside as you will use it later! Cream together the mixture until it's all mixed together, then add the flour. Add in the flour a little bit at a time until it is all combined to form a dough. Wrap the dough in cling film and chill it in the fridge for around 30 mins.
Spread some flour on the worktop and roll out the dough with a rolling pin. Using Christmassy cookie cutters, cut out shapes and carefully put them on a lined baking tray. I liked the snowflakes and christmas trees as they look lovely when iced! You can either use small cutters to make lots of little biscuits, or one large one like the giant snowflake!
Put the tray(s) into the oven and bake for about 10-12 minutes until they are lightly golden brown. Carefully slide them off the tray and onto a cooling rack. While you wait for them to cool completely, make the icing. Using a mixer, mix together the icing sugar with the egg white, and add a teaspoon at a time of cold water if it feels too thick. Spoon the mixture into a piping bag with a thin nozzle, and pipe onto the completely cooled cookies. You can then decorate with sprinkles or whatever you fancy, I chose to add silver balls as I thought they just looked so cute!

  • Shannon Sage

    These are so stinkin cute! I’m sure mine would not look as amazing! But hey, it’s worth a shot right? As long as they taste good who cares about looks right? Maybe?

    Does anyone know if icing sugar in the UK is the same as powdered sugar in America? Thanks!

    Shannon Sage

    • Shania Sandher

      Yes I use powdered sugar in place of icing sugar all the time and it works out! It just need to be very fine nothing like granulated sugar. :)

      • Okay great thanks! I just wanted to make sure before I went and ruined some cookies!

      • selma

        wait isn’t powdered sugar icing sugar? Because i think i used icing sugar for the cokies but i thoigjt it was the same thing

        • clarke

          no powedered sugar is castor sugar. icing sugar is finer.

  • Aimee Budge

    Those cookies look delicious! They’re making my tummy rumble. Better scurry off to the kitchen so I can make some of my own!

      They look so cute. I will have a look at your blog! I think it is so nice, But maybe do not ask so many questions? http://simplyjemma-rose.blogspot.co.nz Xx

    • Jess

      I think you should try and improve the initial look of your blog, because that’s usually what make people stay! I started off with a blogspot blog, but I found it hard to make my blog look the way I wanted so I switched over to wordpress, and found it was easier with the choice of free themes.
      With your posts, I’d say try and make your posts have more focused and longer content that will be helpful to readers, or make them want to keep reading (nice pictures, short and sweet related text etc.).
      Another tip I’d have is instead of trying to post as often as you can (which is something I thought I had to do when I started blogging), try and focus on improving post content rather than posting often.
      Hope I was able to help! (:

    Has anybody in America done these yet?

      Cookies – preheat to 375
      Icing sugar- 1 cup + 1/3 cup
      Vanilla- 1 tsp
      Egg yolk
      Butter- 1 cup
      Flour- 3 cups

      Icing
      Icing sugar- 2 cups + 1/4 cup
      Egg white
      Cold water

      • Thank you so much Jillian! :)

  • Eleanor

    do you think making them with templates instead of cookie cutters would work?

  • Katie Vince

    made these for christmas, added some cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg. not too much as i wanted a subtle flavour with the sugar cookies, but so delicious. i just added the spices in gradually with the flour to the desired taste. i recomend trying it.

  • Sakila

    are they really nice or you guys just saying that? because im trying to find a sugar cookies recipe and I found this but looking at the ingredients is it nice? that’s what im asking! thanks

    • JillianL
