How To Make The Best Sugar Cookies

A guide to making the best sugar cookies!

Christmas baking is a huge tradition in most families. There is nothing better than coming home to some homemade Christmas cookies. Not to mention that it is a great idea to get practicing your cookie recipe for Santa so that you'll get some nice rewards ;) Get out the cookie cutters and aprons and have a bake off with friends and family or just amuse the kids for a few hours with these traditional treats.

Christmas Gift Sugar Cookies with a Bow

I absolutely love these! Not only do they look like little gifts good enough to be placed under the tree - you can also little tags where you can write a nice holiday message or even write the names of your loved ones that you know will love these yummy little treats!

Christmas Character Cookie Sticks

These are so cute and easy to make! Start by outlining the cookie with medium consistency icing then flood the whole inner area with icing. Next, smooth out the icing with a scribe tool and shape the icing around the edges. Then let the icing dry for about 6-7 hours. Next up you'll need an edible marker - then just follow the rest of the steps in the video below!

Gingerbread Men Sugar Cookies

These Gingerbread Cookies are made with all butter for the best flavor. Perfectly spiced with molasses, ginger, cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg, and decorated with a sweet and simple frosting. Just follow the steps from the video at the top of the page!

Grinch Sugar Cookies

Nothing says Christmas like the sight of the Grinch staring at you! Start off by outlining the cookie shape with icing then flooding the inner part. Then start drawing the first cookie using edible ink. Use white flood icing to start filling it in. Then simply follow the rest of the steps in the video below!

Take a look through the selection below for some more great ideas for Christmas sugar cookies. My favorites are the Rudolph one directly below but in all honesty I would gobble all of them up in an instant! Remember the video at the top of the page will show you how to make most of these cookies so hopefully the images below will inspire your baking all through the Christmas!

Santa Sugar Cookies

Use your favorite shortbread recipe to make these cuties. Specific shaped cookie cutters such as Santa shaped can be bought online in places like Amazon. Ice them in a cream colored icing and add some silver balls for the perfect touch.

Frozen Style Sugar Cookies

Don't you just love the Hershey Kisses hats on these cuties? These snowmen cookies will disappear faster than the real thing!

Christmas Tree Sugar Cookies

Nothing will please Santa more than an iced Christmas Tree. Give him something sweet for his sack for an iced treat he will never forget! Perhaps a glass of cold milk would be nice too!

Christmas Stocking Sugar Cookies

Classic shapes like Christmas stockings are ideal for edible Christmas table decorations or even to use as special gift tags for loved ones.

Christmas Character Sugar Cookies

Take a basic cake mix cookie recipe to make these unfortunate snowmen. Use half of a Reese’s Peanut Butter cup for the hat, mini chocolate chips for eyes, and an orange jimmy for the nose.

Christmas Wreath

This is a lazy man's way to do 'Christmas Baking'. Simply get draw out the wreath on a white background - you could even use cookies like nutter butters and pretzels and ice away to create festive themed snacks.

Random Christmas Cookies

You will need the following to recreate Rudolph the red nosed Nutter Butter.

  • NutterButter Cookies
  • White Candy Melts
  • Candy eyes or M&M minis
  • Large red M&Ms or gumballs
  • Pretzels

Reindeer Sugar Cookies

These decorated Christmas cookies make use of a basic rectangular shaped cutter and look great iced in silver.

Holly and Berry Christmas Cookies

Perfect to make with the kids and the colors could be adapted to match those of Olaf from Frozen.

Snowflake Christmas Cookies

Pretzels are the perfect snack to ice as the combination of savory and sweet is a real hit with most guests!

Sugar Cookie Christmas Ornaments

Pop some red m and m's into melted hershey kisses that are placed in pretzels to make these almost too cut to be edible reindeer noses.

Circular Christmas Character Cookies

I absolutely love these adorable holiday treats! Straight after baking sugar cookies, press a candy cane Hershey's kiss into the middle for a sweet center.
