How to Make Mom's Cut-Out Cookies & Frosting

Step-by-Step

  1. Cookies: Mix together the first 7 ingredients for the dough. Then wrap the dough in wax paper and refrigerate for at least a couple of hours.
  2. When ready to make the cookies, preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  3. Only take out of refrigerator a small amount of dough at a time. Roll out the dough on a well floured pastry cloth to desired thickness and cut with cookie cutters.
  4. Bake for approximately 6-8 minutes. Do not let the cookies get too brown!
  5. Frosting: Combine the next 4 ingredients and beat well. Then add food coloring, if desired. Recommend to make a double batch at least! If frosting gets too hard, then just mix in a few drops of milk.
  6. If desired, add sprinkles or other cookie decorations quickly after frosting (while the frosting is still moist).
