Soft Sugar Cookies
I am a big fan of sugar cookies, but not the ones that are dry and taste like pure sugar. I also am not a fan of rolling dough out because well to be honest, I am terrible at getting it to an even thickness. And I know all those cookie cutters are adorable but it takes a lot of time. I much more prefer to just use a cookie scoop and plop them onto a cookie sheet. If i'm just doing a small batch I will suck it up and do the rolling pin thing, if i'm making dozens then the scoop it is.
I actually used this recipe to bake cookies with Jacks class today and even with the help of nine 3-4 year olds they came out perfect & delicious!! We used a small scoop to make perfect sized cookies. I also made a simple royal icing for them to decorate with, oh and of course lots of sparkles and sprinkles! We had a great time and the kids seemed to really enjoy it as well! Heck, I was even asked by one of the boys to read them a story while they had their cookies and milk! So stinkin cute!!!
These cookies are soft and stay nice and "plump". The flavor is perfect and not overly sweet! Now I do have to apologize because I don't have step by step pictures, I was in such a rush to get everything ready that I totally forgot! These are really simple and you'll do just fine!
