I’ve always held the belief that a cookie isn’t a cookie without a little bit of chocolate in it. Sugar cookies were always kind of whatever to me. But you know me. I like making things pretty. And what better canvas than a sugar cookie? I’ve tried about a dozen sugar cookie recipes in my life. This is one that I came up with after none of the ones I tried seemed to be just the right proportion. These cookies are sweet and buttery—almost too sweet and buttery to be a boring old sugar cookie. What I love most about them though is how well they keep their shape in the oven.

If you follow the steps below (ingredients are important, but the chilling part is equally so), you should find yourself with perfectly pointy Christmas trees. Hallelujah!
