Rebecca’s Sugar Cookies

October 3, 2006

Find the chic vintage “cooky” cutters here on ebay.

Use them when you make the beloved cookie recipe:

2 c. sugar
1 c. butter

1 c. milk

2 eggs

7 c. flour

1 tsp. salt

2 tsp. b.s.

4 tsp. b.p.

2 tsp. vanilla

Preheat oven to 375-400 degrees
(it just depends on
the oven — experiment)
Roll out to about 1/4 inch thick on floured surface.

Bake for 5-6 minutes (on greased cookie sheet) until very pale
(do not overcook — this also takes some

Here is the buttercream frosting recipe:

3 c. powdered sugar
1 c. butter

1 tsp. vanilla

Beat with electric mixer for approx. 5 minutes, until
light and fluffy.

Thank you for sharing this, Rebecca!

Yay, someone keeps pestering me about making Halloween cookies. Thanks for the recipe! Does the dough need to chill in the refrigerator for a few hours first?

I don’t know about chilling the dough. Maybe if Rebecca sees this she’ll chime in with her experience.

i’ve made them many times and have never chilled the dough. i think if you do, you’d get a more exacting result, but it’s not necessary.

yippee! I am excited for this recipe!

I don’t chill the dough. But, there have been times that I have chilled it because I haven’t had time to roll out all the dough at once. As I remember (although I do have pregnancy brain), it hasn’t really made a difference either way.

By the way, Kathryn C., I miss you, too!!!

I hope I am not too late in this converstation here . . . I stand as a witness that chilling the dough makes for softer cookies that hold their shape.
