Who doesn’t love sugar cookies? They are crisp and delightful, sinfully simple. Coated with colorful icing or sprinkled with with sparkling sugar they never fail to delight children, teachers, grownups and of course, Santa. We make tons of batches of Sugar Cookie dough during the holiday season. My kids love rolling, and rerolling, cutting and decorating. Sometimes we’ll make a sweet frosting, but most of the time I just like sprinkling the cutouts with decorative sugar before going into the oven. I am sure many of you already know this, but always check the label of your sugars…some use shared facilities that may not be safe for you or your food allergic child.
Here is my favorite All Purpose Sugar Cookie recipe, made without dairy, eggs or nuts of course! Enjoy!
