Sugar Cookies

I love to make sugar cookies and DB loves to eat them! A few years ago I got the a bucket with lots of different cookie cutters for all different holidays so it's fun to make them for holidays.
The recipe is super simple and pretty quick too! The best way to get the shapes apart from the dough is to refrigerate the dough ball overnight.

Sugar Cookies
1 Cup butter
3 Cups flour
½ Tsp. vanilla
¼ Cup milk
2 eggs
1 Tsp. baking soda
1 Cup sugar
1 Tsp. Salt

First, sift flour, sugar, baking soda and salt. Mix in butter until the mix is crumbly. Mix the vanilla into slightly beaten egg and add the milk. Add the egg mix into dry ingredients and form a large ball. Wrap the ball in plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.

Once your dough has chilled in the refrigerator pull it out of the fridge to roll and cut bake at 350 for 8 minutes. 
The icing  depends on the consistency you prefer, I like to just turn the cookies upside down and dip them so I make the icing pretty syrupy.

For the icing just mix powdered sugar and milk to the consistency you want. Once I've mixed it the way I want I add food coloring and this time I added cinnamon flavoring oil to the red icing.

The cinnamon icing was absolutely delicious and DB had most of these cookies eaten up in no time.

Dipping them like that would be a lot easier! Good idea!
