Grandma’s Christmas Sugar Cookies


9-11 Minutes


STEP 1: In a large bowl add the butter, cream cheese, sugar, eggs, vanilla, and almond extract. Using a hand mixer, beat the ingredients together until light and fluffy, about 4 to 5 minutes.

STEP 2: Using a rubber spatula scrape down the sides of the bowl. Add flour, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt. Turn the hand mixer to a low speed and combine the ingredients just until a soft dough forms.

STEP 3: Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for 2 hours.

STEP 4: Once the dough has been chilled for 2 hours, remove from the refrigerator and preheat the oven to 350F degrees.

STEP 5: Place the dough balls on the parchment paper lined cookie sheet, at least 1 inch apart.

STEP 6: Using a fork make a crisscross pattern pressing down lightly into the cookie dough.

STEP 7: Sprinkle sugar with green or red sugar.
