Sugar cookies with cream cheese frosting Sugar cookies with cream cheese frosting
Number of Servings: 70


    Cookie Ingredients
    1/2 cup Butter
    1/2 cup Butter Flavored Shortening
    2 cups Sugar
    2 eggs
    1 cup buttermilk (is using Powdered, use 4 tbsp powder and 1 cup water )
    1 tbsp Vanilla Extract
    2 tbsp Baking Powder
    1 tsp Baking Soda
    1/2 tsp Salt
    6 cups Flour

    Frosting Ingredients
    1 8oz pkg Cream Cheese
    1/4 cup Butter, softened
    2-3 tsps milk
    1 tsp Vanilla Extract
    2 1/2 cup, unsifted Powdered Sugar (or more for a sweeter taste, I like the frosting to have a cream cheese taste to it)


Prep time is an estimate could be longer for cutting out the cookies, depends on how many people are working on cutting out the cookies. Cooking time is per batch.


1. Mix together softened butter, butter shortening, and sugar.
2. Add eggs and mix together.
3. Add buttermilk,and vanilla. Batter will be fairly liquid, so stir together with a whisk.
4. Measure out flour in a measuring cup and add remaining dry ingredients to the flour.
5. Slowly add flour mixture to the batter. Mix it up a little bit at a time until all the flour has been added.
6. Chill the dough for at least an hour. I like to separate the dough into 2-4 sections, wrapped in plastic wrap.
7. After dough is chilled, roll it out on wax paper covered with flour. Cover the rolling pin in flour also. You might want to put a piece of wax paper on top of the dough when rolling it out to keep it from sticking to the rolling pin. Make sure the dough is covered with a light layer of flour when rolling to help keep it from sticking.
8. After dough is rolled out cut into your favorite shapes with cookie cutters. Dip the cookie cutters in flour also before putting into the dough.
9. Bake at 350 degrees. Using pampered chef stones I bake 10-11 minutes for 1st batch and then 8-9 minutes for remaining batches. Cookies will be pale still, but dough should be set. Pull them out when they are still pale, but set in order to help keep the cookies soft. (If not using stones, probably only bake 5-7 minutes)
10. Cool cookies on wire rack.
11. Frost and decorate as desired when cookies are cool.

Frosting Directions
1. Beat Cream cheese, butter, milk, and vanilla in medium bowl with mixer until smooth.
2. Gradually beat in the powdered sugar until smooth and spreadable.
3. Store unused frosting in refrigerator.

Makes 70-80 cut out cookies depending on size of cookie cutters
