Sugar Cookies Recipe from Betty Crocker

January 22, 2013

This family favorite, celebration cookie has stood the test of time.  I originally found it in my Betty Crocker’s Cookie Book that I received as a bridal shower gift over 35 years ago!  Over the years it has become the “Cross Cookie” recipe after all of the baptisms, first Communions and confirmations that they been baked for.  They have also been been made into hearts for engagements, numbers for graduations and assorted Christmas and holiday shapes.  The key to success is do not roll the dough too thin, thicker is better.  Also, do not over cook them.  It may take a couple of tries to get them just the way you like but the effort is worthwhile.  I always use butter, not margarine. in the cookies and the frosting.  My favorite frosting is printed on the box of the C & H powdered sugar.  I don’t recommend canned frosting.  You’ve gone through the effort to make the cookies, finish them up with this simple but creamy and delicious homemade buttercream frosting!
