Merry Maker Christmas Sugar Cookies

Recipe by Amanda Beth
READY IN: 2hrs
YIELD: 48 cookies




  • Mix sugar and butter.
  • Add eggs and flavorings; mix well.
  • Mix dry ingredients together, and blend in to other mixture.
  • Divide dough into several parts.
  • Tint each a different color.
  • Make as many different colors as you like, but make sure they are really different to get the strongest contrast.
  • Refrigerate dough for two or three hours.
  • Take each color of dough and roll into small balls.
  • Place an assortment of different colors next to each other, making sure no two of the same colors touch.
  • Roll together, until about 1/8-inch thick.
  • Cut as many cookies as possible from dough, because if you reroll it, it will smear together.
  • Or, you can make a few at a time by rolling only a few balls at a time.
  • Bake cookies at 375°F for 7-8 minutes, or until lightly golden on a lightly greased cookie sheet.
  • These cookies freeze well.
