The Best Homemade Sugar Cookies You Will Ever Make


The Best Homemade Sugar Cookies You Will Ever Make

One of the things I love to do every holiday season with Lelya is make Christmas cookies, so thought I'd finally get a good recipe up on the blog for reference. After trying many different recipes and making a few alterations, this is definitely my 'go to' recipe for sugar cookies & icing now. Trust me, you will love these! They are great for any occasion and fun indoor activity to do with the kids, and you likely already have all the ingredients in your house already. I definitely recommend making your own icing too because that's probably the best part about these. This recipe is really easy to follow and practically impossible to mess up, and the cookies come out absolutely amazing, & especially great for cookie cutting or cookie bouquets. 

20 minute prep time, 8 minute bake time, & yields about 5 dozen cookies.

What You'll Need:

- 4 large eggs

- 1 1/2 cup coconut oil (or 1 1/2 cup butter)

- 5 cups flour (I've done this with half almond flour and they came out amazing)

- 3 cups sugar

- 2 tsp vanilla extract (ran out of vanilla extract in the past and these still taste amazing without it)

- 2 tsp baking powder

- 1 tsp salt

For the Icing:

- 4 cups confectioners' sugar

- 1/2 cup coconut oil or vegetable oil (or softened butter)

- 5 tablespoons vanilla almond milk (or regular milk, but the vanilla almond milk tastes awesome)

- 1 tsp vanilla extract (optional - I've done it with and without)

- optional food coloring


1. In a large bowl, cream together butter or oil and sugar until smooth.

2. Beat in the eggs and vanilla extract.

3. Stir in the flour, baking powder, and salt.

4. Cover, and chill dough for at least one hour (or overnight).

5. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

6. Roll out dough on floured surface about 1/4 inch thick.

7. Cut into shapes with cookie cutters & place cookies an inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets.

8. Bake 6 to 8 minutes in preheated oven. Cool completely.

For the Icing:

1. In a large bowl, cream together the confectioners' sugar and oil until smooth, the mix in the milk and vanilla extract until smooth.

2. Add in food coloring or sprinkles.
