Champagne Sugar Cookies. Because why not, right?

It’s Friday. It’s the holidays.

Let’s just go for it and make ultra sparkly Champagne Sugar Cookies with the prettiest, fluffiest Champagne Buttercream, ok? 🙂

If you know me, then you know that champagne is one of my very favorite things in life.

The other day, a couple girlfriends and I had a little party on a random Tuesday where we sipped champagne, ate kale dip with carrots (ok and gingerbread cookies, too #balance), and brought candles to share.

Like, we literally sat around a table and talked about champagne and candles.

How amazing is that?!

One of my friends always calls me fancy, but hey! Why does champagne have to be JUST for celebrating big occasions?

I think we should celebrate all the time!

That was the inspiration for these Champagne Sugar Cookies. While they may seeeeeem super complicated and need to be saved for only the biggest celebrations, they’re actually surprisingly easy to make, making these perfect for celebrating any occasion: big or small!

I feel like the whole month of December should becelebrated. It’s just the happiest time of year.

Holiday shopping, holiday parties, ummm holiday FOOD and drinks?!

Yes please!

Thanks to Barefoot Bubbly, this year, we DO get to celebrate all through December.

For the month of December, we’re working with Barefoot Bubbly to bring you THREE recipes using their Bubbly.

You can imagine how ridiculously excited I am about that.

Today, we’re bringing you the first recipe using theirBarefoot Bubbly Moscato Spumante.

Champagne Sugar Cookies Recipe - w/ Champagne Buttercream (3)Sweet moscato + holiday season = sugar cookies, amiright?

I knew I wanted to make sugar cookies and I also knew I wanted to make these super easy to make, because let’s be real, we all have so much going on during the holiday season, we could all use a recipe with a really great shortcut.

First up, the cookies, then we’ll talk buttercream.

For the cookies, simply whisk together a box of vanilla cake mix, eggs, butter, and theMoscato Spumante.

Chill the dough, scoop the dough, chill one more time, then bake and cool!

Easy, right?

Now, the buttercream.

Cream a stick of butter until fluffy, then beatin powdered sugar, a touch of salt, pomegranate juice, and more Barefoot Bubbly Moscato Spumante (because having it just in the cookies didn’t seem like enough 😉 ).

You’ll frost the cooled cookies with the buttercream – I’d suggest watching the video above 👆on how we did that – and sprinkle with sparkling sugar, because these cookies obviously need to be pretty and sparkly.

I absolutely LOVED how theseChampagne Sugar Cookies turned out. The cookies are quick and easy to make and are perfectly softand themoscato shines through beautifully in the fluffy buttercream.

Simple. Sparkly. Cookies.

    Champagne Sugar Cookies Recipe - w/ Champagne Buttercream (17) Delicious! I used French vanilla cake mix and instead of pomegranate juice I boiled down pink champagne to use as a syrup. Love these!

    Champagne Sugar Cookies Recipe - w/ Champagne Buttercream (18) The frosting ingredients should have been cut in half for 20 cookies. 6 cups sugar?? I threw out half of it and used A LOT on each cookie. Good otherwise.

      Thanks so much Candy!!

    Is there a possible substitute for the pomegranate juice? I am allergic to pomegranates. Maybe orange juice?

    Reply

    • Jennifer @ Show Me the Yummy

      I’d try cranberry or cherry juice to keep the pretty color! 🙂 But orange juice would be great, too! It would be like mimosa cookies!

  6. Pattie

    These look yummy and will be equally suitable for Valentine’s Day. I don’t have pomegranate juice, but I do have pomegranate liquor, so I’ll try that. Thanks for the recipe.
