Ugly Sweater Sugar Cookies


Who doesn’t love an ugly sweater? Okay what about an ugly sweater cookie? To make this it is just your typical sugar cookie recipe and then it is up to your creativity to decorate your sweater cookie as ugly as you can. 



 1 ½ cups softened butter

2 cups white sugar

4 eggs

1 teaspoons vanilla extract

5 cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon salt


1.) In a large mixing bowl, mix together butter and sugar until creamy. Beat in eggs and vanilla.  After, with a mixing spoon, stir in flour baking powder and salt. Cover bowl and chill dough for at least two hours.

2.) Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Roll out dough to about ¼ inch thick onto floured surface. Take your t-shirt cookie cutter (any craft store will have one) and cut out your cookies. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet 1 inch apart.

3.) Bake 6-8 minutes. Cool completely before decorating.

Now you can make your own icing, but I would suggest buy the little tubes at your local grocery store. They are much easier for decorating with details.
