Happy Wednesday! Want a cookie!? Sorry, I ate all of them in record time and even told Mr. Britnell that he could only have a couple because “I still need to take a few photos” (which is food blogger code for “lay off, these cookies are MINE!”). Do you ever make something in the kitchen and then spend days amazed that you managed to make something so simply delicious?? That’s these cookies.
They’re just simple sugar cookies but they’re SO DAMN DELCIOUS!!
It’s pretty much guaranteed that I will make these cookies at least 3 more times before the holidays. They will be accompanying me to every single holiday party that I attend in December and each time, I’ll eat at least 3 before even getting there. I can’t wait.
Anyways, as I mentioned in yesterdays income report, I’m a bit swamped with work this month so I’m going to keep this as brief as possible. Okay?
The cookies are very simple!
First we beat together the wet ingredients with the sugars. Then we mix in the dry ingredients (it’s ALL in one bowl so less cleanup!). Now, the dough chills for 2 hours or even overnight. Yes, the waiting is difficult but it’s ALL worth it in the end.
Now just roll the cookie dough out and cut them into cute shapes. Or as I did, use a wine glass to cut them into circles because you found a dinosaur cookie cutter and a USA cookie cutter but you couldn’t find your plain ole’ circle cookie cutters. For future reference: the wine glass worked just great!
Bake and you’re DONE! Except for the icing part. If you’re reading this on the day that I published the recipe then I haven’t yet published the icing recipe. It’s coming on Friday, don’t worry!! Will update then :)
Even if you’re not vegan, you should totally make these cookies! They’re seriously (officially) one of my new favorite recipes on the blog and that’s saying a lot because I tend to love all of my recipes.
HERE is the recipe for the vegan frosting if you’re also interested in that.
And with that, I hope that you have a lovely Wednesday! December is tomorrow!!
