Soft Sugar Cookie Trees
Not all sugar cookies have to be thin and crisp. These sugar cookies bake up soft, tender, and perfectly smooth for decorating. They're even better when topped with cream cheese icing. The dough can be made up to two days ahead and will be easiest to roll out when it is very cold. We love using tree-shaped cutters for Christmas, but this dough (and simple cream cheese frosting) will come in handy for any holiday or occasion you want to break out the cookie cutters.
