Best 3 Ingredient Sugar Cookies
My husband owned a bakery for many years, so when the holidays rolled around, I left the baking to him.
This year I decided to pull out his recipe box and try my hand at one of my kids favorite Christmas cookies.
It’s nothing fancy, but every year they would ask for these cookies. They didn’t want any frosting on them, or sprinkles.
Just the deliciously soft and flavorful sugar cookies using just Dixie Crystals sugar, flour and butter. For even more classic Christmas cookie recipes, visit Dixie Crystals here.
When my daughter came home and saw me baking. I showed her the recipe and she said “your making Dad’s sugar cookies”?
Isn’t it amazing how a simple thing like a 3 ingredient cookie recipe can become so much more? Holidays are all about memories.
The kids don’t care how fancy the cookie is, or how many ingredients are in it. Sometimes less, really is more.
We enjoyed a warm sugar cookie with a glass of milk and talked about a few other Dad cookie recipes we could bake this year.
Classic peanut butter blossoms are next!
You can definitely add frosting or sprinkles, or serve them warm and fresh from the oven with a big glass of milk. Either way, they are perfect!
These would also be great to bring to a holiday party. Put them in a cute cookie tin like this adorable little red truck tin I found at the dollar store:
Here is a printable recipe for this family favorite 3 ingredient sugar cookie.
- 1 stick plus 2 tbsp. salted butter
- 1/3 c. Dixie Crystals sugar
- 1 c. all-purpose flour
- Preheat oven to 325°. Use an electric mixer to cream the sugar and butter, until the mixture is light and fluffy.,
- *Form the cookies into 1" balls, placing them about 2 inches apart on a baking sheet.
- Bake for 15 to 17 minutes, or until the edges of the cookies are lightly golden.
*If using sprinkles, press the cookies flat and add them prior to baking.
