Grandma’s Sugar Cookies

xmas sugar cookieI don’t remember my Grandma making any other cookie than her oatmeal, walnut and raisin cookies. However, after she died I found a recipe for sugar cookies. I made them and realized they were the richest sugar cookies around. You can cut them into Christmas themed shapes for the holidays. My favorite shapes are Santa and Christmas trees. I’m sure it’s the German side of me that is a bit obsessed with Santa.


  • 1 cup (two cubes) butter
  • 1 1/4 cups sifted powdered sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


Pre-heat the oven at 400 degrees. Cream together the sugar and butter. Add the eggs and vanilla. Add the dry ingredients gradually and mix well. Cut into shapes and bake for six to eight minutes. You can decorate them with butter cream frosting.
