How To make the best Christmas sugar cookies

It's cookie season, y'all! That time of year where you're makin' a whole lot of cookies. Around the holiday season, is there anything more iconic than sugar cookies? We're gonna give you our tasty tested sugar cookie recipe, complete with everything you need to have some darn good sugar cookies this holiday season.

Alright, so, let's get started. So, we're gonna make our dough first. We're gonna use room temperature softened butter. Listen, that is not melted butter. Melted butter is not the same. In we go. We want a really pale color, so that's why we're using white sugar here, and this is a secret ingredient. I know it doesn't look like cream cheese, but it is cream cheese. And this is gonna give us a little bit of a savory flavor and a little bit of tanginess as well.

How to make melted snowmen cookies

Today I'm gonna show you guys how to make some delicious melted snowman cookies, so let's get started! To make my cookies get extra crispy I'm going to be adding some ammonium carbonate, just going to give this a quick, I'm also going to add some vanilla extract and just stir them!
