This past weekend we had company over and the girls had a blast looking up ways to make their own sugar cookies. This is their creation. A delicious recipe and treat worth sharing with you all.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 sticks of butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 2 1/4 cup flour
  • pinch of salt

Mixing Sugar Cookies Ingredients

Additional Items Needed

  • Mixing Bowl
  • Plastic wrap or aluminum foil
  • Mixer
  • Baking sheet(s) x 2
  • Spoon for putting mix onto baking sheet

Sugar Cookie Dough Prepared for Firming

Start Making the Sugar Cookies

  • In a bowl, with mixer on medium, beat butter and sugar until fluffy; beat in egg and vanilla extract. On low, beat in flour and salt.
  • Divide dough in half; shape each half into a 1/2-inch-thick disk. Wrap in plastic wrap; chill until firm. {we used aluminum foil}
  • Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • On floured surface, roll dough 1/8-inch thick; cut into shapes. Transfer to ungreased baking sheet(s). Bake until lightly golden around the edges, 10 minutes. Let cool 5 minutes on sheets; transfer to racks to cool. Decorate as desired; store in an airtight container up to 2 weeks, or freeze, undecorated, up to 3 months.

Hershey Kisses on Sugar CookiesAdditional options for you to do could be to place a Hershey Kiss on top of each sugar cookie, the girls only had a handful of chocolate kisses, so they placed a few on some of the cookies. Place the kiss on the sugar cookies after they come out of the oven, to allow for the Hershey Kisses to “melt” into the cookie.

This recipe yields approximately 30 cookies.

    Hershey’s Kisses always just taste better on top of a sugar cookie. Why is that?
