Once again, I know Christmas has come and gone, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a nice batch of sugar cookies on a cold winter day.

I made these cookies last week as part of my gifts to give away to family members. I spent the entire day baking–that’s what I call a good day :) :)

Ingredients: (I found this recipe on Blissfully Delicious. I also want to add that I was super excited to find this particular recipe because it doesn’t require you to chill the dough before you make it. No rollin’!)

  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 sticks butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • extra sugar for sprinkling

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Sift flour, baking soda, and salt into a bowl; set aside.
2. Mix butter and sugars until fluffy. Mix in eggs one at a time, then add vanilla.
3. Gradually add the flour mixture until just combined.
4. Scoop out 1 tbsp of dough and roll into a ball with your hands. Place the dough on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Flatten with the palm of your hand or the bottom of a glass. Sprinkle with sugar and/or other types of sprinkles. It should look like the picture below before baking.
5. Bake cookies for 12-15 minutes or until golden on top. Let cool on the pan for a few minutes and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
If you bake them correctly, these cookies are crunchy on the outside and chewy on the inside when they come out of the oven. Mine got crunchier throughout the afternoon, but I didn’t mind! I hope you enjoy! And thanks to Blissfully Delicious for supplying this fabulous and classic recipe. :)
