How to Make Rolled Sugar Cookies
- In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until smooth. Gradually beat in eggs and vanilla extract, mixing well.
- In another bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture, stirring until a smooth dough forms.
- Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour, or until firm.
- Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
- On a floured surface, roll out the dough to about 1/4-1/2 inch (0.6-1.2 cm) thickness. Cut out cookies using cookie cutters.
- Place cookies onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake in the preheated oven for 6-8 minutes, or until lightly golden.
- Allow cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
- Prepare the icing: In a small bowl, stir together confectioners' sugar, milk, corn syrup, and extract until smooth. If you want to add colors, divide the icing into several portions and add food coloring.
- Once the cookies are completely cooled, decorate them with the icing. Use a spoon, a piping bag, or a plastic bag with a corner cut off to apply the icing.
- Allow the icing to harden by leaving the cookies out for several hours or until the icing is fully set.
- Once the icing has hardened, the cookies can be stored in airtight containers or bags. Store in a cool place.
Enjoy! These sugar cookie rolls are perfect for holidays, and you can use different cookie cutters and decorations to make them unique and thematic.
