Description

When you think of Christmas sugar cookies, brown sugar and spices may not come immediately to mind. But these ingredients make simply an outstanding cookie. I usually roll out my dough fairly thick and the result is a soft, slightly crisp and buttery cookie that is a lightly spiced taste of Christmas. And when you layer on a heavy coat of cream cheese frosting, you do indeed have something very special.

Ingredients

  • FOR THE COOKIES:
  • 1-½ cup Butter
  • 2 cups Brown Sugar
  • 1 whole Egg
  • 4 cups Flour
  • 2 teaspoons Cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon Nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoons Cloves
  • ¼ teaspoons Baking Soda
  • FOR THE FROSTING:
  • 8 ounces, weight Cream Cheese
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • ½ cups Butter
  • 5 cups Powdered Sugar

Preparation

For the cookies:
In a medium sized bowl, cream together butter, brown sugar and egg. Add flour, spices and baking soda. Mix well.

Refrigerate dough for about 2 hours or more. Roll out dough before or after refrigerating (see the related blog link for details).

Remove dough from the refrigerator. Roll out dough to about 1/4 inch thick. Cut out desired shapes and place them on a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees F for 8-10 minutes. Cool on a wire rack. If you want to frost them, make sure to do so when cookies are completely cool.

For the frosting
Cream together cream cheese, vanilla and butter. Add powdered sugar. Whip until creamy.

I believe that the cookie recipe was originally in a collection distributed by Tupperware.
