This is an easy Christmas cookie recipe with few ingredients, which makes it an easy baking recipe for beginners and seasoned bakers. I added an easy icing recipe as well. These beautiful Christmas treats are a must for a hassle-free and delicious holiday baking season. Let’s make this Christmas extra sweet and special together with my easy sugar cookie recipe! 🍪✨

I’m a 42-year-old who loves family and the holidays. For me, the festive season isn’t just dates on a calendar; it’s a chance to connect with my kids through shared moments. Come along as we dive into making more than just cookies – we’re creating traditions and special memories together.

  • Bonding Time: Because these cookies aren’t just treats; they’re a way to connect generations and make lasting family memories.
  • Create Something Special: Bake these cookies because they’re not just treats – they’re beautifully shaped like angel wings, adding a touch of charm to your holiday table.
  • Super Simple Cookies Recipe: Don’t miss out because the recipe is a breeze. With just a few ingredients, you’ll have these cookies ready in no time, making holiday baking stress-free.
  • Deliciously Sweet: These homemade sugar cookies aren’t just pretty; they taste amazing too! Get ready for a burst of sweetness in every bite, making them a delightful addition to your festive spread.
  • Showstopper Treat: Impress your guests with these unique cookies that steal the show. They’re not just desserts; they’re the star of your holiday gatherings.
  • Easy and Elegant: Enjoy the best of both worlds – a simple recipe that produces cookies with an elegant flair. It’s a win-win for anyone who loves easy yet impressive holiday baking!
  • Check the thickness: Make sure the dough’s thickness is even all around (I recommend rolling to 5-6mm / 1/4-inch thickness—don’t be afraid to use a ruler). If your dough is uneven, the cookies’ bake times will vary, and the surfaces will slope, causing difficulty when piping decorations.

Pro Tips on how to make this easy holiday cookies recipe.

  • Gather all you ingredients before hand and weigh them precisely with a kitchen scale.
  • Make your your eggs and butter come to room temperature .
  • Chill the rolled-out cookie dough before you cut it out and bake the cookies. This is essential for hindering the cookies from spreading while baking.
  • Let the angel wing cookies cool completely before you decorate them with the royal icing.
  • Beat all the ingredients for the royal icing until fluffy and has a meringue like consistency.
  • I use one-way piping bags without a piping tip for decorating.
  • Check the thickness: Make sure the dough’s thickness is even all around (I recommend rolling to 5-6mm / 1/4-inch thickness—don’t be afraid to use a ruler). If your dough is uneven, the cookies’ bake times will vary, and the surfaces will slope, causing difficulty when piping decorations.
