An Easy Frosted Sugar Cookie Recipe

Am I the only person who feels like summer is slipping through their fingers? Oh the plans I had! Oh the fruit salads I was going to make! Oh the vacations…

I mean, I do understand it’s barely July and there is a whole lotta dog days left. But it feels like September is closing in on me. Maybe it’s because my boys are getting a little older, and I realize that these free summer days, with nothing on the schedule, are fleeting, certainly.

I need to really focus on being in the moment. This moment. This 2017 July moment. Savor it, because soon it will ACTUALLY be September, my tan will be fading and strawberries will no longer be in season, and my 11 year old will most likely be taller than me.

Focus, Shelly. Summer. Do it right, please.

And maybe have a sugar cookie. Your summer bod never happened either 🙂

So let’s focus on the recipe of the day. This pressed sugar cookies recipe is pretty much a dream come true. I posted about them a MILLION years ago on Instagram, when I made them for my kids as a treat…but you all seemed interested in the recipe. I got you.

And I made a little video to show you how easy these sugar cookies are to make!

How to Make these Frosted Sugar Cookies

This is a very easy cookie recipe. The trick to these is the combination of vegetable oil and butter. AND a combo of granulated and powdered sugar. Trust me on this.

The sugar cookie dough might seem a little dry, which is also ok. Believe in the process.

Use a large cookie scoop for these. Because large cookie scoop = large cookie. And that’s me.

Just drop the scoops of dough onto a baking sheet and use a glass and press down the center before you bake. The edges will crack a bit, but again…totally fine…it’s actually kid of the beauty of the cookie.

Then you must make frosting. It’s the rule. Because sugar cookies with frosting > sugar cookies without frosting.

Go ahead and leave your sugar cookie frosting white…and sprinkle it up…
