The Busy Giffs: Wine Bottle Sugar Cookies

Wine Bottle Sugar Cookies

I am loving this holiday season!
I love all the "holiday things", like playing in the snow, looking at Christmas lights, watching Christmas specials, and wrapping gifts!

I thought Emmalee would like decorating cookies so I figured I'd attempt making them this year so we could!
I scoured Pinterest and every recipe called for almond extract or other people had commented about how they "tweaked" them and I just wasn't comfortable with that. So like any normal human, I posted on Facebook that I needed help finding the most perfect fool proof recipe and a friend posted her recipe that she stole from a magazine years ago.  It's no where online and it was the easiest, most ridiculously delicious sugar cookie recipe ever so I need to immortalize it for all of you!

Oh, and they didn't have a name. So I have named them Wine Bottle Sugar Cookies. 
Why, you ask?
Because I apparently don't own a rolling pin (which is probably why I haven't attempted making sugar cookies since I moved out of my mom's) and a wine bottle worked just perfectly in its place! ;)

You need:
2 softened sticks of butter
1 8 ox softened block of cream cheese
2 cups sugar
1 egg
2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
3 1/2 cups flour

Cream butter and cream cheese with sugar.
Add egg, beat until creamy.
Add dry ingredients. Combine.

Refrigerate for at least 1 hour. ( I let mine sit overnight).
Use LOTS of flour on the counter and roll out cookies, cutting desired shapes!
Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes.

These are basically fool proof and took less than an hour to cut out over 4 dozen!
You can use whatever icing you'd like! I thought about royal, but flood icing and a two year old just didn't mix so we went with store bought frosting that we colored, and I pulled out all our sprinkles!
here's a few images from my NEW instagram account!
