Cookies to the rescue!

Yup! We were having one of those days…. No school  and it was too hot to play outside. Toys were everywhere. I desperately neededSugar Cookies to create a fun project for my son. Cue the cookies 😃

Pair this simple, no-chill sugar cookie recipe with a rolling pin, cookie-cutters and sprinkles for hours of entertainment.

Make your own recipe:

  • Switch out flours – how about grinding almonds to replace half the flour for a tasty and healthful substitution?
  • Change the flavor – pure extracts such as lemon, hazelnut or any others you like can completely change the personality of your cookie
  • Add textures and flavors – how about chocolate chips? nuts? dried fruit? candy such as heath bars, peanut butter cups, marshmallows?

You get the idea… Now go make your own recipe!
