These are the perfect cookie to leave out for the Grinch to distract him from stealing your Christmas joy on Christmas Eve. You can change up the colors to match any theme you have. This is a great take on a yummy sugar cookie. This christmas sugar cookie is one that my kids love for me to make each year.
The Whoville sugar cookies are fun, festive and easy to make, but they look like they will take forever! 😉 Don’t tell your friends they don’t take forever when you bring them to your parties 🙂 If you love these make sure you also check out our Disney Frozen Ice Swirl cookies .
Please note the dough will be sticky, you need to make sure you are really keeping the dough cold to make the butter firm. When you roll out the dough you want to make sure you are rolling it in between the parchment paper or wax paper or it will stick to your rolling pin. After you roll it out place the dough you need to place the dough in the fridge for at lease an hour. If for some reason the dough is to liquid you can add a 1/2 cup of flour to the dough.
