Sugar cookie recipe-eid party

Homemade cookies always bring the comfort to any party. Sugar cookies take it to the next level. I don't know if you can even have a party without a batch of fresh sugar cookies on the table. They brighten the room and taste so good! Your guests will be begging for the recipe before they leave.

For the Tea Party Decorations Eid Party post which you can read hereI baked the cutest and most delicious sugar cookies. You won't believe how easy it was to bake, even I was surprised! It was my first attempt at baking the sugar cookies and I can proudly say that it is defiantly a winner!

I made sure to share the cookies with family members to evaluate their thoughts on the cookies, you can say that I had more than two thumbs up for this delectable goodness packed in little cookie forms. I am also going to include that these sugar cookies taste extremely delicious in the cookie dough form, I found myself munching on it when I was cutting the cookies.

The cookie cutters are from The Muslim Sticker Company you can find them here.
The shapes are the moon and star certainly the perfect shapes for Eid, and a lovely fancy cutout shape. The cookie cutters came with alphabet stamps which I used to stamp Eid on some of the sugar cookies. I also used a sparkly Eid Mubarak cupcake topper by silhouette sue on top of the sugar cookies as a way to include some glitz and glam to the cookies.


  • 1 3/4 all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup white granulated sugar 
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • Baking tray
  • Baking sheet
  • Icing sugar
  • Ready to roll fondant icing
  • small paint brush


1// Mix the flour and baking powder and salt together
2// In a separate bowl, beat together the sugar and butter
3// In a low-speed beat in the egg and vanilla into the sugar and butter mixture.
4// Slowly add in the flour mixture and mix until it forms a cookie dough.
5// Wrap the cookie dough in cling film and place in the fridge to chill for at least an hour.
6// Cut out and place your baking sheet on your baking tray
7// Lay a baking sheet on your workspace and your cookie dough on top of it, and another baking sheet over it. This method will allow you to roll without using extra flour and your dough won't stick on the workspace surface. Roll out your cookie dough to 1/2 an inch. 
8// Cut out your cookie dough with a cookie cutter
9// Transfer the cookies onto the tray.
10// Place the tray into the oven, bake for 8/10 minutes.

15// Using a small clean paintbrush lightly brush your cookie with water then transfer the matching
fondant icing on top of it.
