Soft Frosted Sugar Cookies

Hello everyone,

I am still here, I just haven’t felt like blogging much. But I did promise I would post this recipe. I hope you enjoy it as much as we have! 🙂

Soft Frosted Sugar Cookies:

For the cookies:

4-1/2 cups all-purpose flour

4-1/2 tsp. baking powder

3/4 tsp. salt

1-1/2 cups (3 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature

1-1/2 cups granulated sugar

3 large eggs

5 tsp. vanilla extract, or seeds from 2 fresh vanilla beans

For the frosting:

5 cups powdered sugar

1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter melted

1 tbsp vanilla extract

4-6 tbsp. whole milk

Combine cookies ingredient’s together until you have a soft dough. Refrigerate dough for about 2 hours. Roll dough out on a clean surface dusted with powdered sugar. (Dusting with powdered sugar instead of flour help’s keep your cookies from becoming to tough.) Use any desired cookie cutter’s, but I like using a smaller round one. Place cookies 2-inches apart they can spread a bit. Bake in a 350 degree oven until cookies are just set. Cool completely before icing.

To make frosting: Beat all ingredient’s together until smooth.You can use food coloring if you want to. Frost cooled cookies.

I just wanted to update everyone on my health. I am doing ok. So far the methotrexate hasn’t killed my liver, yet…I have had some really good days and some really bad ones.. I really like my new Sarcoid Dr. He really knows what he’s doing, and it’s really an added bonus that he has his own lab. I don’t have to drive to the hospital lab to get my bi-monthly blood draws. Some of my blood levels have been off a bit and I had to increase some meds… Which is a bummer. We are still just working on unpacking boxes, some days I can’t do anything other days I can get a lot done.. I just have to take one day at a time..:)

Until next time…
