Soft – SOFT! – Sugar Cookies


This will be a short post but I feel compelled to share.  I love the idea of cut-out cookies and cookie cutters but am never a huge fan of the reality of cut-out cookies.  Too hard and bland.  UNTIl – until – I saw Susan’s (of She’s Becoming Doughmesstic) post about soft sugar cookies.  I had heard tales of cream cheese in the dough being the answer but had never tried it.  The pictures of her cookies inspired me to try and I am glad I did.  If you are looking for a soft sugar cookie, these are the answer!

My older son and I decorated these (so they look nothing like Susan’s little works of art).  The key is take them out before they look like they are done if you want them to stay soft.  My mini-cookies took only four minutes.  I made one slight alteration.  I didn’t have any lemon extract but added a pinch of fresh grated nutmeg.  Click here for the recipe and happy decorating!

  1. I’ve been wanting to try these since I saw Susan’s post. I think I will do them for Christmas! I love soft cookies!

  2. You know, I was scared off by her amazing decorating skills so I never even looked at the recipe!!

    I prefer soft cookies anyways, so thanks for the heads-up!

    Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving!

  3. I use cream cheese in my dough, too! I love soft sugar cookies!

  4. My sister always includes cream cheese in her sugar cookies and she has people *begging* her for them at Christmastime!

  5. I am a HUGE fan of soft cookies and tried to go where this post points today (6/08/10), but alas! Couldn’t find the site – one of those fruitless messages about No More Blog. Any chance of you providing this another way?
