Happy 2018 everybody!! Wow, let’s hope this year is even better than last year! I’m going to strive to be a better me, healthier, happier and hopefully maybe even make some money! 🙂 So to start off, I’m posting a super easy and delicious sugar cookie recipe that you do not have to chill OR roll out! Hooray!
These are super fun because you can decorate them however you want. Use any color of sprinkles or use frosting. Here in Chicago it is -5 degrees so I wanted to represent ice or snow. Mine look like they can be served at a Disney’s Frozen party 🙂 Rolling the dough in sprinkles before baking give these cookies an extra crunch and combined with a chewy inside… so good! I highly recommend doing that for this recipe.
So here we go! Oh, I halved the recipe below which made about 20 cookies so if you don’t need any more than that, you can do the same.
What you will need:
Cookie sheet lined with parchment paper
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup unsalted butter at room temp
1 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg
Sprinkles for decorating
Preheat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit. In a bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda and baking powder. In another large bowl, beat butter and sugar until creamy. Add vanilla and egg and beat until combined. Slowly beat in flour mixture until just combined and dough is formed. If using sprinkles, place those in a small bowl.
Roll the dough into 1 inch balls and roll in sprinkles. Place on prepared baking sheet. Gently press down the cookies with the bottom of a glass. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Cool on a wire rack. Store in an airtight container. Enjoy!
Happy New Year!
