Kwachy’s Cut-Out Cookies

Lori  Smith

We were trading recipes with friends and Kwachy gave us a couple of great ones.   She said  “I’ll trade you for the best cut-out cookie recipe ever. These are just as good without icing as with, which is rare for a sugar cookie. The brown sugar is the secret:”

She was right, of course!

  • 1 lb butter
  • 1 c brown sugar
  • 1 c white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 5 1/2 c flour

Cream butter and sugar, beat in eggs and water, add dry ingredients and refrigerate till ready to roll and cut

I frost with:

  • 1/3 c softened butter
  • 1 lb powdered sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 c milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla

I hate to make these all by myself, but they are required. I have cookie cutters for every holiday, so we get these in pumpkin shapes in the fall, Christmas shapes in December and hearts in February.  By spring we can’t waddle.
