    LJeffTheChef's Note:

    Quick and easy sugar cookies that taste like grandma's homemade holiday cookies but are as simple as slice and bake. This recipe evolved because friends were craving dessert but I only had pantry ingredients and NO baking powder. I used more baking soda as a substitution and they worked like a charm. Two dozen cookies, gone in a flash.

    My Private Note




    Units: US | Metric


    • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
    • sugar (for rolling the dough balls in before baking)


    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 375°F In a bowl, mix flour and baking soda.
    2. 2
      In a larger bowl, cream sugar and softened butter until smooth. Mix in the egg and vanilla extract. Blend in the dry ingredients slowly until combined. I first made these with a fork instead of a mixer and it was fine. Hand roll into balls (teaspoon size) and place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Optional: Roll the dough balls in a mix of cinnamon and sugar before placing on the baking sheet.
    3. 3
      Bake 8 - 10 minutes or until light golden brown. Let the cookies cool for 2 minutes away from the heat before devouring.

      I did this recipe exactly, except I substituted All-purpose for Whole grain flour. The cookies are fantastic. I also added an almond glaze to the top of the cookies making them have a little extra omph. The bake time varied between 10-13 minutes at 375. <br/><br/>This is the glaze that I used.<br/>1 1/2 cups powdered sugar<br/>2 teaspoon almond extract<br/>8 teaspoons water

      This recipe sucked, it created hard sugary partly burnt pancakes. Don't make them, but if you truly must then add a dash of milk and a spank more baking soda than the recipe recommends and put them in for 10 minutes. this makes them not so bad, people may just nibble politely on them for you instead of blatantly turning their noses up.
