Soft Sugar Cookie With Cream Cheese Frosting

Posted on

My mom’s sugar cookies are famous. For real. They’re soft and cakey with a rich cream cheese frosting that pretty much everybody loves – it’s way better than the tasteless “royal” icing that’s often used to decorate sugar cookies or the pasty pink frosting on those store bought ones. She makes them for every holiday and I don’t know how many people have requested the recipe over the years. Good thing she doesn’t mind sharing recipes, because I’m going to share it with all of you today.

One thing I really like about this recipe is that you don’t have to chill the dough before rolling it out. I don’t know about you, but I don’t really like making cookies to be an all-day affair. I’d rather just mix them up and get them baked, and that’s exactly what you can do with this recipe.
