I’ve got some easy to make sugar cookies that don’t require refrigeration. And they are mmm mmm good!
These aren’t the standard roll out on a floured surface sugar cookie recipe. They are a mix together and drop on the cookie sheet variety.
I’ve shied away from traditional sugar cookies because they are so much work. They take a long time to make, create a mess and then they are gone. It just doesn’t seem like all the hassle to me usually.
But spread some amazing buttercream frosting and decorate these yummy cookies and call it good.
Because sprinkles make everything better right?
