Get set to make a batch of Holiday Cookies. Don’t worry, it’s not a complicated recipe. In fact, it’s easy enough that you can have the kids help. Enjoy.

Cookie Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 ½ cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon orange extract (or almond)
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ teaspoon baking powder
  • 4 ½ cups flour

Frosting Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon dry Jell-O gelatin (any flavor)
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 3 tablespoons sprinkles

Directions:

Cream the butter and sugar together. Now, add your eggs, salt, baking powder, vanilla, and orange (or almond) extract to the mixture. Once mixed, add flour 1 cup at a time until thoroughly combined.

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.

Roll out your dough on a lightly floured surface to 3/8” thin. Cut using cookie cutters and place on a cookie sheet. Put your cookies into the oven for 7 minutes. Once done, place them on a cooling rack or paper towels.

While your cookies are in the oven, start the frosting. Simply combine all ingredients (except sprinkles) in a bowl and whisk until blended.

When cookies are cool to the touch, spread frosting on each one and top with sprinkles.
