Vintage Recipe Thursday: Simple Sugar Cookies



Simple Sugar Cookies
These are the kind of sugar cookie that keeps really well in a cookie jar, because you don't eat them hot from the oven.  After they've cooled, they're crisp and crunchy, which makes for a nice change.  They're also unfrosted, which means even less work and the batch makes 60 cookies, so I don't have to worry about making cookies very often.  Plus, the dough freezes really easily.  Freezing instructions are included with the recipe.

The plate is part of my "American History on Staffordshire Pottery" collection

Some fun music to go with your sugar cookies--
King Oliver's "Sugar Foot Stomp:"

  1. Are you bringing sugar cookies with you to visit? These look especially lovely on one of your American History plates!

  2. I love cookies that last. In my house cookies stick around, so making a whole batch is a pain when the majority get tossed. I love your dishes! Very classic.

  3. Merut- We accidentally left several of these cookies out on the dining room table for a few days and they still tasted the same! Plus, you can always just make a few, which is really helpful.
