Show Your Love with Sugar Cookies

Be a hero this Valentine's Day by making some incredible sugar cookies from a family recipe shared by Kristina Case, a designer on our marketing team. Whether you want something for your sweetheart, your entire family, or your child's class at school, these will hit the mark.

An important thing to remember before you start: let the butter soften to room temperature. This is key. Don't try to soften it in the microwave or use it fresh out of the fridge.

Cut-Out Sugar Cookies

1 c. butter softened
1 c. sugar
1 egg
2 ½ c flour
2 TBL orange juice
1 TBL vanilla
1 tsp baking powder

Beat sugar and butter until fluffy, add egg and vanilla. Add dry ingredients and orange juice.  Beat well until mixed. Put dough in saran wrap and refrigerate at least 2 hours.  On floured surface, roll out dough to between ¼"-½" and cut into shapes. Bake at 400 degrees for 6-10 minutes.  Makes 2 dozen.

Perfect Buttercream Frosting

4 c powdered sugar
½ c butter, softened
3-4 TBL milk
1 tsp vanilla

Combine and beat until fluffy. Works great in a decorator's bag for piping.
