These roll-out refrigerator cookies are super easy to make and only need to be chilled for about 2 hours before you can roll them out and cut them into fun shapes! Although try not to do what I did and forget to add in the baking soda. Duh. Thankfully, I remembered in time to add it in to the mix!
1 cup butter, softened in the microwave for about 20 seconds
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 1/3 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
Cream butter and sugar in a mixing bowl on low until light and fluffy. Add vanilla and egg. Mix. Add flour and baking soda. Mix well – dough will be thick. Store in the refrigerator for about 2 hours. When chilled, divide dough in half and roll each half about 1/2 inch thick. Cut into desired shapes … we are making Christmas cookies today! Cook at 375 for 7 to 8 minutes and remove immediately from the cookie pan to cool.
Frost and decorate as desired!!
