And then eat them.
And then drink some milk.
And then look at your kitchen sink that is filled up with sticky dishes and then decide that it’s time for you to leave the house to… uh… run errands.
I hate doing dishes. But that’s a whole different story. We are not here today to talk dirty dishes, oh no. This post is about sugar cookies, and decorating them with the ones you love.
Well, don’t you feel silly now. That’s totally my niece. Geez.
You can get really fancy with your sugar cookies, use tons of colored frostings and candy to make pretty designs and all that. Or you can stick to the classics, if you find yourself short of food dye because your kitchen cabinets just might be a bit too cluttered….
My favorite: plain. Seriously. I love me a warm, unadorned sugar cookie with a small glass of milk. This is probably one of my favorite sugar cookie recipes, and it’s SUPER easy.
Classic Sugar Cookies, makes around 2 dozen (depending on the size and shapes you cut out).
Needed: 1 cups (2 sticks) softened butter, 1 cup powered sugar, 1 large egg, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, 1 teaspoons salt and 2 1/2 cups flour.
Cream together the butter and sugar. Add the remaining ingredients and stir until a soft dough ball forms. Cover in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour (or more, up to two days) then roll out on a lightly floured surface and cut out your shapes. Bake at 375 F for 8-10 minutes, until the edges are just beginning to brown.
Enjoy! xo. Emma
