Cupcake Sugar Cookies

Hey there!  I have posted this recipe before but they are so yummy that they deserve a repeat post!  


Sugar Cookies

Ingredients:
  • 1 ½ cup powdered sugar
  • 1 ½ cup (3 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 3 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt
Directions:

Preheat oven to 350. Combine all ingredients in a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment until well blended. (About 2 minutes) Roll out the dough on floured work surface. Cut into desired shapes. Bake for about 15 min. depending on the size of your cookie, until golden.

Icing

Ingredients:
  • 3 cups powdered sugar (sifted)
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 2 Tbsp warm milk
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt
  • food coloring (optional)
Directions:

Using the whisk attachment on a stand mixer or hand mixer, beat butter until light and fluff, about 3 minutes. Add powdered sugar mixing thoroughly after adding each cup.  Add milk, vanilla and salt and beat for 1 more minute.  You can use this as a glaze if warm or a frosting (as I did in the cupcake cookies) if cooled and piped.

Enjoy!
