Soft Christmas Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2012
EASY! I've made this recipe twice in a few days, and I'm not much of a baker. They came out perfect each time. My 10 year old nephew declared them to be the best sugar cookies he'd ever eaten! Everyone loved them. I iced them with the shiny cookie icing recipe on AllRecipes. http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Shiny-Cookie-Icing/Detail.aspx?prop24=RD_RelatedRecipes&extkb=1 I also made candy cane shaped cookies and iced them with peppermint white chocolate icing, which I made my melting down some white chocolate chips with skim milk, added a little peppermint oil and red food coloring, and piped from a pastry bag. Delicious either way! I do think these cookies require icing. Otherwise they're kind of like shortbread - pretty dry.

Shiny Cookie Icing

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2012
I made Christmas cookies with these and the icing hardened nicely. I was out of light corn syrup so I made a simple syrup out of sugar and water. I used 1/4 cup of sugar and 1 tablespoon of water, brought it to a boil over medium heat and simmered for 5 minutes on low heat. I used an electric mixer to mix everything together, then separated into 2 batches and added coloring to one and left one white for the snowmen. My icing didn't come out super white because I used brown turbinado sugar instead of white sugar and I added vanilla extract, which also made it darker, but it still looked white enough. Great recipe!
