One of the most traditional holiday cookies! Every year we make these I try to add at least one non-traditional shape to our monster army of sugar cookies (speaking of army, last year my sister and I battled making gingerbread vs snowmen to see who could make more of which and even added some battle wounds with icing)! Anyway, this year's non-traditional shape was fish.
Mix together flour, baking powder, salt, and butter.
In another bowl add the baking soda with the sugar. When well blended add the beaten eggs, milk, and vanilla.
Pour the sugar mixture into the flour mixture and blend until smooth. Chill in fridge for easy handling. Roll on to a floured board or piece of parchment paper and cut into shapes.
If sprinkling some, sprinkle now.
Bake on greased or lined baking sheets at 375 degrees until golden.
Frost if desired. Note: the super dark gel icing we used did not dry! Beware!!
Now a fish and the awkward gingerbread men I don't actually want people to see. They're just crazy awkward!!
And now some prettier ones to end the post with!
And the post-baked sprinkled cookies.
We made sooooo many cookies this year!
