I love how these Snowflake Christmas Cookies make you feel as if time stops when you take a bite. The airiness of the dough paired with the heavenly fragrance of the confectioner’s sugar and vanilla transfers you to a realm of peace and tranquility even if just for the moment.

With all the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, it’s rare that you get a chance to stand still and catch your breath. Our Snowflake Christmas Cookies give you that chance- and then some- whether it’s alone in your car, waiting for a pickup, or taking a moment in the kitchen. These cookies are the calm during the storm.

For full instructions, please view our recipe card below

1. Preheat the oven to 350

2. Using a large mixing bowl mix together your ingredients until well blended

3. Once a dough ball has formed, cover and transfer to the refrigerator for at minimum 1 hour

4. Using your rolling pin, remove the dough and flatten into a 1/4-inch-thick rectangle

6. Bake for approximately 10 minutes then immediately transfer to a cooling rack

7. Once cooled, dust your cookies with confectioner’s sugar and serve

Preparing a batch of easy Snowflake Sugar Cookies is a fun, yet peaceful activity that can recenter you after a hectic few hour- or days. I particularly enjoy the dough rolling process, as it gives me a chance to work off any tension and anxiety that I’ve been storing since the kickoff of the holiday season. And what results from that is a light and fluffy pastry bite that I can then decorate till my heart’s content!

Plus, if you serve these alongside our Smores Milkshake or Harry Potter Butterbeer the kids will go bonkers- which will give you a few minutes of peace before you must go pry them off the ceiling.


The only word of caution I’d like to put out there is regarding the chill time. I am a fan of letting my dough rest and if you’re not pressured for time and can swing it, I strongly suggest allowing the dough to chill overnight.

It’s such a little thing but can make a big difference to how well your cookie holds together after baking, plus if you’re thinking about storing these cookies- whether in the fridge or freezer- they’ll fare better if the dough has had more time to settle then immediately plop them into the oven.
