INGREDIENTS


For the cut-out sugar cookies:
  1. 3 cups (375 grams) Pillsbury BEST™ All Purpose Flour (spooned & leveled)
  2. 2 teaspoons baking powder
  3. ½ teaspoon salt
  4. 1 cup Crisco® All-Vegetable Shortening
  5. 1 cup (200 grams) sugar
  6. 1 large egg room temperature
  7. 2 tablespoons (30ml) milk
  8. 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

For the cream cheese frosting:
  1. 1 (8-ounce) package brick-style cream cheese, softened to room temperature
  2. ½ cup Crisco® All-Vegetable Shortening
  3. 2 cups (240 grams) powdered sugar
  4. 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  5. 1-2 drops food dye optional

INSTRUCTIONS


To make the cookies:
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats and set aside.
  2. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the Pillsbury BEST™ All Purpose Flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl using an electric mixer, cream together the Crisco® All-Vegetable Shortening and sugar until well combined. Mix in the egg, milk, and vanilla extract until fully combined.
  4. Slowly add the dry ingredients and mix until just combined.
  5. Divide the dough in half. Roll out each half on a lightly floured surface to ¼-inch thickness for crisp cookies or ⅜-inch thickness for softer cookies. Cut with 2 to 3-inch cookie cutters. Place 2 inches apart on baking sheet. Re-roll any scrap pieces of sugar cookie dough and cut out more cookies as needed.
  6. Bake in separate batches at 350° for 8-13 minutes or until the tops of the cookies are set and lightly browned. Baking time will vary based on how thick you roll the cookie dough and the size of your cookie cutter.
  7. Cool on the baking sheet for 5-10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling.

To make the frosting:
  1. Beat the cream cheese and Crisco® All-Vegetable Shortening until well combined, then mix in the powdered sugar and vanilla until fully combined.
  2. Frost the cooled sugar cookies and top with sprinkles if desired.
