Santa Claus is going to love this recipe: delicious sugar cookies that you can decorate however you like. Leave a few on the kitchen table with a tall glass of milk as a treat for Santa when he swings by on Christmas Eve!


  • 2 sticks Becel salted margarine (250 ml – 1 cup)
  • 250 ml (1 cup) sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 5 ml (1 tsp) vanilla extract
  • 750 ml (3 cups) flour

For the icing:

  • 750 ml (3 cups)  icing sugar
  • 2 egg whites
  • Food colouring, as desired
  • Sprinkles, as desired


  1. Use an electric mixer to whip the margarine with the sugar for 2 to 3 minutes. Whip in the eggs and vanilla. Gradually add the flour, mixing at low speed.
  2. Divide the dough into 4 balls. Wrap each ball of dough in plastic wrap, then flatten the balls into disks. Refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours.
  3. When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F).
  4. On a lightly floured surface, roll out each disk of dough to a thickness of about 3 mm (⅛ in.).
  5. Cut out different shapes from the dough using a variety of cookie cutters. Place the cookies on two or three baking sheets lined with parchment paper. If the dough becomes too soft, place it in the freezer for a few minutes.
  6. Bake each sheet of cookies for 8 to 10 minutes, until the edges of the cookies are golden brown. Remove the sheets from the oven and let cool on a rack.
  7. In a bowl, mix the ingredients for the icing.
  8. Use a pastry bag to decorate the cookies with icing.
