We are back on track with this week's recipe for Grandma's All-Occasion Sugar Cookies, chosen by Ulrike of Küchenlatein. These cookies offered lots of fun options for what to do with them. You can add flavors in, slice and bake, roll and make cutouts to decorate, add sprinkles or sprinkle on sugar, frost them, or leave them plain. Pretty much there was an option for just about everyone. My thanks go out to Ulrike for choosing such a fun cookie to make during the holidays!
I thought the recipe was nice and easy, and the cookies were extremely delicious. Mine turned out nice and buttery and soft, but I did cut them a little thicker and also only baked them for about 9 minutes so they didn't get crispy at all. I just prefer softer sugar cookies, though I think this recipe would be good no matter what. We pretty much inhaled that first roll and I'm glad I stashed the other in the freezer to keep me from baking (and eating) them all in one sitting.
Make sure to check out how all the other Dorie Bakers did this week - I'm sure there is a lot of fun and beautiful cookies running around out there today!
