Buttercream Iced Sugar Cookies

This weekend I made some sugar cookies…some easy, delicious sugar cookies. At first I was planning on decorating them with royal icing, but I finally decided I just didn’t want to worry about the clean up (Washing squeeze bottles, decorating bags, and tips is kind of a pain some times–actually for me it is the worst part of the sugar cookie decorating). So, instead I whipped up some easy buttercream. They might not look as fancy as the royal iced cookies I have done…but they sure taste amazing!!

I made the sugar cookies using Our Best Bite’s recipe. I’ve tried some other sugar cookie recipes, but I always come back to this one. For the frosting I made a basic vanilla buttercream (butter, powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla). Here is a similar recipe from the Betty Crocker Website.

If you are looking for a yummy way to satisfy your sweet tooth, give these delicious sugar cookies a try!!

  1. There’s nothing better than buttercream frosting, if you ask me! And I’m right there with you on cleaning up after decorating sugar cookies–it’s the worst. It’s all about the taste for me, anyway. :-) These look great.
