It’s July 9th, and do you know what that means? It’s National Sugar Cookie Day! Today, we honor a cookie that’s as simple as they come, but always a hit. You just can’t beat a good sugar cookie! Traditional sugar cookie recipes call for just six ingredients: sugar, flour, butter, eggs, vanilla, and baking powder—easy breezy!
You might suggest that it's just a
plain cookie, but you’re not being creative.
If the butter/sugar combo isn’t enough for your tastebuds (side eye
glance), sugar cookies can be cut into shapes and decorated--like mine! Another flavor-bonanza’ed tweak is to toss some
M&M’s into the batch…you can thank me later. There’s something to be said
for an M&M sugar cookie. And don’t mistakenly confuse it with its cousin,
the chocolate chip M&M cookie, which adds brown sugar into the mix!
I’ve found a few “random” M&M
sugar cookies that I love: Schnuck’s
grocery store in central Illinois in the deli area, and dagnabbit if those M&M
sugar cookies at the Walgreen’s checkout aren’t the most delicious thing
