Sugar Cookie Dough

  • 3/4 C butter
  • 3/4 C butter flavor Crisco
  • 2 C sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla or almond extract. I prefer almond.
  • 5 C flour
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt

Sugar Cookie Glaze

  • 1 C powdered sugar
  • 1 Tbsp milk or whipping cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla or almond extract
  • 1 Tbsp Corn Syrup
  • few drops of flavoring of your choice I like almond


For the Sugar Cookie Dough

  • Combine butter, Crisco and sugar in bowl and beat.
  • Add in eggs and extract and mixed until combined
  • Add in dry ingredients and mix until well combined.
  • Refrigerate for at least one hour.
  • Roll out cookies to desired thickness and cut with cookie cutter.
  • Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes depending on thickness of cookie. If you like them softer, bake less.

Glaze Frosting

  • Combine powder sugar, extract and corn syrup in bowl.
  • If you are using a liquid food coloring, you will need to use LESS milk. If you are using a gel food coloring, your milk quantity can remain the same. Add in milk to desired consistency. It will get too runny fast so be careful.
  • The corn syrup gives the “shine” to the frosting that you want.
