Sugar cookies are my favorite cookie!!!!! No matter what time of year I eat them I think about Christmas. In my family we have always used a recipe that produces a thin sugar cookie. They are great and I love them but I would like to know how to make the thick puffy ones. Anyone have a good recipe?

Ralphie, Sugar cookies are my favorite cookie too. I esp. love them with icing. They are good frozen too.

I have never had one frozen. Do you just make them like normal and then stick them in the freezer?

Yes, I often make my Christmas sugar cookies, ice them, and stick them between layers of wax paper in a rubbermaid container and freeze them. I found out that they taste good frozen, when I 'snuck' a few out!!! They aren't bad. Mine are sort of the thicker or medium sugar cookie.

That sounds really good! I am going to make some on Thursday so I will have to freeze a few and try it.

Ralphie, here is my sugar cookie receipe
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 beaten egg yolk
3 tbsps. milk
1 1/2 cups Five Roses Enriched Flour
1 1/2 tsps. baking powder
1/8 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. vanilla
Cream the butter, add sugar gradually, beating between additions. Add the egg yolk and milk well.
Then I add all the dry stuff, a little at a time alternate with the milk and vanilla.
After you have all the stuff slightly mixed together then I finish the mix with my hands and form into a ball. Then I put it on waxed paper and put it in the fridge overnight.
Take out of fridge rolled out on a lightly floured counter and cut your desired shapes. Bake in a pre heated 375 oven for 8 minutes.
Here is a picture of my sugar cookies from this past christmas!

I have this sugar cookie recipe that I got from a friend of mine at church. We usually get together with the kids at our church to bake cookies for our carols and cocoa shindig. We go out caroling for the shut-ins of our church and to one of the local nursing homes and then we come back to the church for cookies and cocoa and any cookies that are left over our sister church puts in the lunches they make for the homeless.
Anyway here it is:
Grandma Sue's Foundation Sugar Cookies
1 cup Crisco
2 cups granulated sugar
6 Tablespoons milk
2 teaspoons vanilla
3 eggs beaten
4 3/4 cups flour or 5 1/2 cups cake flour
1 teaspoon salt
3 teaspoons baking powder
Cream shortening, ad sugar gradually till well creamed. Beat eggs lightly in separate bowl, add milk and vanilla to eggs. Sift all dry ingredients together. Add dry alternating with egg to creamed sugar/shortening until well mixed. Chill.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees, roll to 1/4 or 1/2 inch thick and use cut outs or roll into balls , flatten with flat bottom glass covered with damp cheese cloth or non-fuzzy towel. Add sugar sprinkles, cinammon & sugar befor baking or frost when cooled. Bake approximately 15 minutes till bottom edge is golden.
Enjoy, we also use the dough to wrap around any kind of chocolate candies. I think the last time we used Rolos, little chocolates with caramel in the center. Made for a nice surprise in the middle.

The best sugar cookie recipe I ever tried had powdered sugar instead of regular. I'll try to find the recipe and post it.

Thank you snowberry! Since I posted this I found a recipe that gave me the fluffy sugar cookie I was looking for. The one that I use is a Betty Crocker recipe.

The cookie recipe that I found and have since started using was a big hit! I made them for our Christmas Eve party at my grandma's and everyone loved them. I also made about 20 dozen over the course of two weeks for various people and I got wonderful feedback. The extra money I made from selling them helped to finish up that Christmas shopping!
