Sugar Cookies Galore

So today I was on twitter talking with a few folks about holiday cookies and we got to talking about Sugar Cookies.  Sooo…as per request here is one of my favorite sugar cookie recipes.  This is a quick drop cookie recipe, which is fun to roll in sugar, but not go great for being iced.  I’ll put up our famous soft rolled sugar cookies recipe next week after I get some pictures.

Danish Sugar Cookies

1 cup sugar

1 cup butter

1 egg

1 tsp vanilla

2 cups sifted flour

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp cream of tartar

1 tsp Ultra gel (optional – helps to hold moisture and chewiness of final product)

Cream sugar, butter, egg and vanilla until light.  Combine dry ingredients and add to sugar and butter mix.  Combine well.  Scoop out dough balls and roll in colored sugar if desired.  Place on baking sheet 2 inches apart and bake at 325 degrees F for about 10 minutes or until golden brown around the edges.  Also, you can roll these cookies into cylinders, pack in waxed paper and refrigerate or freeze.  For baking cut off 1/4 inch slices and bake for 9-11 minutes.  Yield:  2 dozen.

    • My pleasure. I love this particular recipe because it’s the fun flavors of sugar cookies, but a little faster than the roll and go variety. 🙂 My kids love the buttery texture and how easy it is to roll in cinnamon sugar, or sprinkles or whatever else we have handy.


  2. You should better add some pictures to your post to make more readers attract with your post. But for what I read it seems that it is really a delicious cookie recipe of yours. I indeed agree that sprinkles or any toppings will make it more perfect.

    • Thanks for stopping by. 🙂 Yeah. This was one of those last minute got a request for a recipe but didn’t have any pictures handy. I need to make them and get more pictures put up. It’s a really nice and really quick recipe, which is one of my favorite things. It also supports a light whipping cream frosting nicely.
