- 1 cup melted butter
- 2 cups sugar
- 3/4 cup milk
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 5 1/2-6 cups flour sifted-spoon into your measuring cup*
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp sea salt or real salt
- 1/4 cup butter softened
- 3 cups powdered sugar
- 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 3-4 Tbsp milk or Kefir
- 1 package of Cream Cheese 8oz
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- 2 Tbsp milk
- 1 tsp vanilla
- pinch of salt
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Mix the butter, sugar, milk, eggs, and lemon juice together with a whisk or beaters.
Stir in vanilla.
In a separate bowl, mix the dry ingredients.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix well.
Cover and put in the fridge for 15-30 minutes. (This helps the cookies keep their shape once you cut them out.)
Roll out cookies to 1/4" thick and cut out with desired shape.
Bake on parchment paper or a greased cookie sheet for 6-10 minutes. (6-7 minutes if you like them softer-6 minutes for thinner cookies, 7 minutes for thicker cookies-or 8-10 minutes for more firm cookies.)
Allow cookies to cool on the pan for about 5 minutes before moving them to a cooling rack or parchment paper.
Frost cookies when cooled.
For the frosting, mix all the ingredients together for which ever frosting you choose (the Buttercream or the Cream Cheese).
Make sure to sift or spoon your flour beforehand. For higher altitude (above 4,000 feet) you will need closer to 5-3/4 to 6 cups of flour. For sea-level, you'll probably use 5-1/2 to 5-3/4 cups of flour. If you find that your dough is too dry or crumbly, add more milk, 1 tablespoon at a time. You just want the dough to come together. It should be easy to manage not sticky. And try not to over mix!
