There’s nothing quite like a delicious sugar cookie recipe. Don’t buy Pillsbury Dough rolls, you can make amazing cakes that will remind you of the days when Grandma made them.
Grandma used to sit by the fire and drink her tea and Grandpa used to sip his coffee made from his French Press, before it got trendy. I love to see them sitting there enjoying the day. When we walked in the house, there was a smell coming from the kitchen which you can’t imagine. The sweet aroma of warm sugar cookies invades your senses. You know today will be fun.
It’s a tradition we enjoy every year. The kitchen was filled with flour storms and the counter was sticky from the Buttercream frosting. We had tin cookie cutters scattered all over the table. I like the boots the most, my sister loves the angel.
Grandma had a special way with the pastries and she gave me the recipe. I got to teach my kids how to make these awesome holiday candies. Not Christmas time without this Yummy cake recipe.
I publish it because I want you to enjoy the best sugar cookie recipe ever.

We used to make the cutest colors for cake decorating, most of them looked inedible. They tasted heavenly, though. We think if we make them look disgusting enough, the adults will leave them alone. We were wrong. Everyone knows it’s Grandma’s famous sugar cookies from her recipe book handed down. This page is full of all kinds of colors. I have the book now. I love making this cake with my kids.
Grandma’s Favorite Frosting (don’t forget the food coloring)
