How to Make These Super Soft Batch Christmas Sugar Cookies

Whenever you want super soft Christmas sugar cookies, you want to make sure they are not overbaked. This is the biggest way to turn soft cookies into hard cookies. The best way to make sure they stay soft cookies is to make sure to keep them covered well. The air will make the cookies become dried out.

Can I Freeze This Cookie Dough?

I love having fresh baked cookies whenever the craving hits, but I do not always have time to make a batch of cookies. This is where many people choose to buy the pre-made cookie dough. But you don’t have to. When you are making these cookies, simply, make a double batch and put half of the dough in the freezer. You can freeze as a whole batch or scoop it into balls before freezing.
