I am looking for a good sugar cookie recipe that is firm and sturdy enough for cookies on lollipop sticks. I want to decorate them for party favors for my daughters b'day.

Here's one that I use, it holds up pretty good, might be the addition of cream of tarter? But I've used it to build houses instead of gingerbread.

2 sticks Butter (not margarine)
1 C Powdered Sugar
1 large Egg
1 tsp Vanilla extract
tsp Almond extract
2 C All purpose flour
1 tsp Baking soda
1 tsp Cream of tartar

Directions:
Cream together butter, sugar, eggs and extracts. Sift flour, baking powder and cream of tartar in separate bowl. Mix dry ingredients into creamed mixture. Chill at least 2 hours.

this one is one that my friend gave me..she got it from her MIL so I hae no clue how old it is..we used it for kids church fund raisers and the kids did the rolling, cutting and decorating..so it is sturdy enough to be kid proof.

1 stick unsalted butter melted
1 c sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla (mexican vanilla is the best)
2 c flour
1 tsp soda
1/2 tsp salt

Mix butter, sugar and egg until well mixed, add vanilla and stir. Add combined dry ingredients and chill for 30 minutes in freezer. ROll out on well floured counter and cut with cutters. Place on silpat sheets and cook at 350 for 10 minutes or just until cookies start to brown on bottom. About 3 doz depending on size.

I've tried several other sugar cookie recipes, and this has become my recipe of choice. It makes a sturdy cookie with a good flavor. I use it for all my holiday sugar cookies and when I make decorated cookies as party favors (which I LOVE to do!).

I have a great one in my blog. I actually found it in this site. They are called John's Super Sugar Cookies.

Here is the link to them in my blog http://amberskitchen.blogspot.com/2007/04/easter-cookies-bring-full-bellies.html

And here is the recipe (yes unfortunately you have to use margarine!)

Jon's Super Sugar Cookies

Cookies:
2 eggs
3/4 cup margarine
1 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon real vanilla
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 cups AP flour
frosting - recipe follows

1. Cream margarine and sugar well.
2. Add vanilla and eggs; combine well.
3. In separate bowl, sift the baking powder, salt and flour. Add to wet ingredients slowly until thoroughly combined.
4. Cookie dough must be chilled until firm, or overnight.
5. Remove dough from fridge and roll out to a 1/4 inch thickness.
6. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
7. With cookie cutters or rim of drinking glass, cut out cookies.
8. Place cookies on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake in preheated oven for 8-10 minutes, depending on oven. Check often to prevent over cooking or burning. Cool on baking rack when done.
9. Meanwhile, to prepare frosting

Frosting:
1 teaspoon real vanilla
1 stick of real butter
4 cups powdered sugar
1 tablespoon cream or whole milk

10. Cream butter, milk and vanilla together.
11. Slowly add powdered sugar to butter until desired consistency. If you'd like, add liquid food coloring for festive cookies.
12. When cookies are cooled, slather this heavenly frosting. For more texture and color, press the top of the cookies in sprinkles, colored sugar or just eat plain!

*** These cookies are a hit any time of year and can be made festive with food coloring and sprinkles.
