The best chewy sugar cookies with vanilla cream cheese frosting and festive sprinkles!
This recipe makes 24 cookies.
Add dry ingredients, in 3 parts, to butter mixture and mix until incorporated.
Baking time for these cookies is between 8 to 10 minutes. Every oven is different so check the cookies at 8 minutes and if needed add one minute at a time. For me the magic number was exactly 9 minutes.
To properly measure out flour: stir the flour a few times in the container you keep it in, then spoon into measuring cup and level out with knife.
Please note that the butter should be really soft, not just room temperature to touch. It should be so soft, that you need a knife to scrape it off the wrapper. It will ensure proper creaming with sugar.
I use 1 and 1/2 cups of powdered sugar in my frosting but you can use as much as 2 cups, just until you reached the desired texture.
You can roll the dough balls in white granulated sugar before placing on baking sheet. My favorite frosting for cookies is made with cream cheese and not an overwhelming amount of powdered sugar, just enough to make the frosting spreadable.
