These are so easy to make and a great sugar cookie recipe that will blow your taste buds away.

Making adorable ornament sugar cookies starts with our Basic Sugar Cookie Dough.

Here's what you need: – unsalted butter – granulated sugar – all-purpose flour – salt – baking powder – eggs – vanilla extract OR vanilla bean extract

Tips:  - For the smoothiest surface, turn the baked cookies upside down on the parchment paper as they cool. - Allow the cookies to cool completely before decorating them. - Slightly thicker ribbons tend to hold ornament cookies better than thin string.

VARIATIONS We recommend that you try our Christmas ornament sugar cookies for the first time just as it is written for the best results, because that is how the recipe has been tested.
