There's something about every holiday that begs for sugar cookies, so we had to make sure we put this recipe in our lineup. A classic, anytime of the year treat, from scratch sugar cookies are simply the best.
We took one of our favourite recipes for sugar cookies from Everyday Annie, swapped out the flour and added some xanthan gum — it was that easy!
The original recipe is for easy to bake and frost cookies, since you can simply roll the dough in balls, flatten, and bake. However we find it works just as well for cut-out cookies — and who doesn't love a versatile recipe?
Be warned, the full recipe makes a LOT of cookies, so get ready to roll! You can enjoy them plain, decorated with soft frosting, royal icing, or you can cover them in sprinkles before baking. Kids and adults alike will have plenty of fun decorating (and as you can tell we have a soft spot for using sprinkles for an extra bit of sparkle!)
Prep: 30-45 minutes (plus 1 hour resting time)
Cook time: 10-12 minutes
Yield: 2-5 dozen cookies (depending on size and shape)
