I have been on the hunt for a few years now for a good, thick sugar cookie, and this is the best recipe I have found. They are tender and delicious and hold up to royal icing and this buttercream frosting, which is what I used to frost these snowflake cookies. Having 15 grandchildren, and running my own business, I don’t have lots of time anymore for decorating cookies with royal icing, and buttercream frosting just tastes SO much better than royal icing, so that is what I usually frost my cookies with. It’s also faster and easier! You can click on the link for the Buttercream Frosting to get the frosting recipe, it truly is THE BEST Buttercream Frosting you will ever have! Enjoy the cookies!
And if you are staying in our Cascade Luxury Suite at the Rocky Mountain Lodge, you just may get these cookies in your cookie jar!
