This is my favorite holiday cookie. To make them especially festive, dip one side in holiday sprinkles before baking.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix sugar, butter, egg and vanilla in a large bowl.
  2. In another, medium-sized bowl, mix the dry ingredients.
  3. Gradually add this mixture to the larger bowl, beating with a hand-held mixer.
  4. Cover and refrigerate for a minimum of one hour.
  5. Heat the oven to 375°.
  6. Shape the dough into 1-inch balls.
  7. If you want to add sprinkles, place the balls into a shallow pan, such as a pie pan, that has a layer of sprinkles on the bottom.
  8. Gently flatten the dough into the sprinkles using the bottom of a glass.
  9. If you are not using sprinkles, dip the bottom of the glass in granulate sugar.
  10. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  11. Bake until barely browned (these cookies are meant to be soft) or about 8 minutes.
  12. Immediately remove from the cookie sheet and lay on aluminum foil.

I gave this 5 stars. My family loves these cookies. I got this recipe from my Home Ec. Class when in school. The recipe tells how to make Brown Sugar Crispies - Substitute 1/2 cup packed brown sugar for the white sugar. Thanks for posting such a yummy recipe! Christine (internetnut)
