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.
Ingredients you will need:
- Unsalted sweet cream butter
- Pure vanilla extract
- Baking powder
- Baking soda
- Cream of tarter
- Christmas sanding sugar
How to Make Sprinkle Christmas Sugar Cookies
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and prepare cookie sheets with parchment paper. Then, using a mixer, cream together the butter and sugar.
Next, you will add in one egg at a time continuing to mix until smooth. Lastly, add in the vanilla and set aside.
In a separate bowl, you will combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and cream of tartar and whisk to combine.
Now, you will add the dry ingredients into the wet until well combined.

OMG! These are fantastic! Easy to make and so soft! Definitely making these every year
I made these and they were very good; Snickerdoodle-esc in texture. They look very pretty on the Christmas cookie platter and the delicious taste makes them disappear quickly. Heading to cookie exchange with them this year!
Can you freeze these after they are cooked?
Yes, store in plastic wrap and then in foil.
Can you use Splenda instead of sugar?
You can, however it may change some of the the characteristics of the cookie. Use a 1 to 1 ratio. Baking time may be less as well.
