Your Favorite Series: Nama's Old Fashioned Rolled Sugar Cookies

Anne from MI

When my seven nieces and nephews were growing up, our family tradition was spending the day together baking my grandmother's sugar cookies. 

I learned to bake from Nama when I was 4 years old and baked Christmas cookies  with her until I was married. 

I wanted to share Nama's sugar cookie recipe with you.. enjoy it and be sure to pass it on.  Good recipes are meant to be shared. 

Nama's Old Fashioned Rolled Sugar Cookies


1/2 C Unsalted butter
1C White sugar
1 Egg
1 Tbl Milk
1/2 Tsp Vanilla
1 1/2 C All-purpose flour
1/4 Tsp Salt
1 Tsp baking powder


Cream butter in mixing bowl.  Beat in sugar, egg, milk and vanilla.  Add flour, salt and baking powder.  Mix well.  Divide dough in half and wrap in waxed paper.  Chill in refrigerator at least one hour.   Use plenty of flour on the board, rolling pin and cookie cutters to prevent sticking.  Roll out dough 1/4 inch thick and cut out shapes with cookie cutters.  Bake at 375 degrees on an ungreased cookie sheet for 5-8 minutes. 

Nama's Cookie Frosting

Mix 2 Tbl of hot water to 1 cup powdered sugar.  Mix with a knife.  Tint with a drop or two of liquid food coloring.  Note:  Using hot water makes the frosting shiny.  Add hot water as needed to perfect consistency.
