One of my favorite Christmas traditions is decorating sugar cookies!

These cut-out sugar cookies don’t spread which make them perfect for decorating! Just choose your favorite cookie cutter and voila!


  • 1 Cup cold butter
  • 1 Cup granulated sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • 3 – 4 Cups GF 1:1 baking flour
  • 1 Tsp vanilla extract


  1. Cream butter and sugar together until fluffy. (see bottom for more info)
  2. Mix in the eggs and vanilla until well combined.
  3. Slowly add in the flour until a dough consistency is formed.
  4. Roll out the dough into an even sheet on either parchment paper or a floured surface
  5. Cut out shapes in the dough using your favorite cookie cutters!
  6. Chill for 30 min in the fridge or 15 in the freezer. (super important!!)
  7. Preheat oven to 350 f, while the dough is chilling!
  8. Bake for 8-12 min
  9. Let cool then enjoy!

What is Creaming?

According to, “creaming means mixing butter and sugar together on a moderately high speed until well blended, fluffy and pale yellow.”

I did this using a food processor, but you could also use a mixer, automated whisk, or if you are feeling crazy… a handheld whisk!
