Directions

  1. In a large bowl, stir together 1 cup butter and brown sugar until smooth and creamy. Stir in 1 teaspoon vanilla. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, salt, and baking soda; stir into creamed mixture. Mix in milk, stirring until a soft dough forms. Cover, and chill for 1 hour.
  2. Preheat oven to 365 degrees F (185 degrees C). On a floured surface, roll out dough to 1/4 inch thick. Cut into desired shapes using cookie cutters. Place cookies 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets.
  3. Bake in a preheated oven for 6 minutes. Cool on wire racks.
  4. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, stir together 1 cup butter and 1 teaspoon vanilla until it becomes smooth and creamy. Gradually stir in sugar, one cup at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in a splash of milk, and continue mixing until light and fluffy. Keep icing covered until ready to decorate. Spread icing on top of cookies.

Loved these cookies. Were easy to make and roll out. I added one egg to the recipe, but followed the rest of it. The cookies were very moist and the icing was great. Plan to use this icing on cakes as well. Very, very yummy and my kids were able to help with the whole thing.

very good recipe i had to add a little bit of water to make more of a dough. I also added one egg.For flavor I added some pumpkin spice inside and pumpkin spice/sugar for the top. plain ones with mint chocolate chips on top were awsome.my 9 year old loved them. Thanks for the great recipe!

Great recipe- ity definitely rivals regular cout out cookies! I added an egg to the recipe and the result was extra moist cookies that remained soft even days later. They seemed better rolled out on the thick side.
