We've made every kind of design imaginable from the many usual holiday cookies, to Texas', Tie-died T-shirts, Eiffel Towers, Eagles, Dragons, High Heel Shoes, Monkeys & Bananas & more! Always more... ;o)

How to Make Traditional Decorated Sugar Cookies

Step-by-Step

  • 1Cream Crisco & sugar, add eggs one at a time. Add extracts, salt, & baking powder. Add whole wheat white flour then all purpose,one cup at a time. Mix until dough comes together & cleans the sides of the bowl. Chill.
  • 2I use silicone mats in my half sheet baking pans. I roll out my dough on the mat sprinkled w/ powdered sugar. Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes. Cool on wire racks and decorate. You can literally make cookies for anything your imagination dreams up.
  • 3This is a basic dough that can be adapted to make all kinds of cookies, like pecan sandies, or chocolate sugar cookies just by adding a few ingredients. This is also a large batch recipe & yields 5-6 dozen cookies.
