Holiday Time Recipes: Sugar Cookies


Hey everyone!  Monica is out of town on business so I'm popping in today to share some links to one of my favourite cookies to make at Christmas time--Sugar Cookies.

They aren't my favourite cookie but for some reason I just love them at Christmas time, especially when I use Christmas shaped cookie cutters to make them even more seasonal.  Though, I'll be real honest and admit that I'm not much of a baker and with my time being so limited, I tend to purchase cookie mixes and pre-made frosting to whip up some of these yummy cookies much faster--I know, blasphemous to anyone who is a traditional baker.

Sugar cookies are relatively easy to make and most people will have all the ingredients needed on hand to whip up a batch.  Traditional sugar cookies simply call for:
  • butter
  • sugar
  • a large egg
  • vanilla extract
  • baking powder
  • flour

Some recipes I've seen add a pinch of salt and others include baking soda along with baking powder.

You can decorate sugar cookies with a variety of different icings and of course sprinkles and other sorts of edible goodies.

Get baking and enjoy all that yummy goodness!!!
