You know those sugar cookies that look so delicious, but leave that bitter, weird after-taste? These are not those cookies! These are soft, and sweet, and oh-so-delicious! This particular cookie was cut into a puzzle for a silly little thank you gift.
Can Sugar Cookie Dough Be Frozen?
Sugar cookie dough can be frozen for up to 3 months.
Form dough into a ball and freeze in a heavy duty freezer bag.
Or, roll dough out and cut into shapes.
Freeze in a single layer on a parchment lined cookie sheet.
Once frozen, transfer cookies to a heavy duty freezer bag.
Sugar cookie dough should be thawed in the refrigerator before baking.
How Long Will Sugar Cookies Keep?
Store sugar cookies in an air tight container in a cool, dry pantry or cupboard.
Sugar cookies will keep for up to 3 weeks.
Can You Use Margarine Instead Of Butter In Sugar Cookies?
You can substitute stick margarine for the butter in a cookie recipe.
But, margarine may affect the spread and texture of the final result.
- 2 Cups Butter
- 2 Cups Powdered Sugar
- 3/4 Cup Sugar
- 1/2 Tablespoon Vanilla
- 1/2 Tablespoon Almond Ext.
- 2 Eggs
- 5 Cups Flour
- 3/4 Tablespoon Baking Soda
- 3/4 Tablespoon Cream of Tarter
- Mix butter, sugars, extracts, and eggs until fluffy.
- Add dry ingredients and mix until combined. Dough is soft, but should ball up. I like to use my hands to form the ball.
- Roll 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick (whatever you like-I like something closer to 1/4).
- Cut into shapes.
- Bake on 325 for 12 to 15 min.
- Cookies will not be brown, if you like them soft. If you like them crisp, then let the edges brown just slightly.
