I am legit addicted to sugar cookies and beyond proud to say I’ve perfected the sugar cookie. I turned my husband into a sugar cookie fan after years of not liking them. Yes, my cookies are that good. I could go on and on chatting about how perfect my sugar cookie recipe is because it took me about a month to get it just like I wanted. I created a video (my first recipe video, yay!) showcasing the recipe but it’s not ready for everyone to see just yet. Until the video goes live here is my recipe with a slight twist to it. My toddler thinks sprinkles are life, they grace his donuts and pancakes from time to time so these mini sprinkle sugar cookie cakes are heaven in his blue eyes.
Before we dive into the recipe I have to give you an update on what’s been going on behind the scenes because I took a very long holiday….
I’ve been playing with the kids a lot, like A.Lot.
I’m planning some fantastic content for my newsletter readers and for all things Melissa Creates for the creative. Sign up here if you wanna hang with me a bit more.
I just finished watching Big Little Lies. WHOA. Hand Nicole Kidman all the awards, y’all. I don’t watch much tv but goodness I’m thankful someone suggested that one.
I’ve been working more. I decided October 2017 to get back into the blog world after taking 10 months off to snuggle babies and man oh man it feels good to be back!
Ok, now I’ll give you the recipe you came here for…
2 sticks of butter
2 1/2 cups of flour
1 cup of sugar
2 tbsp baking soda
Combine sugar and butter until well blended
Add in egg
In a separate bowl combine baking soda and flour, mix
Slowly add in dry mixture to wet mixture in 3 parts mixing well in between each addition of dry to wet
Mold into a ball, roll out (I use a bit of flour on my rolling station)
Roll sugar cookie dough into one large roll/tube, similar to what you would do if you’re making a log
Pour sprinkles on the dough roll coating the entire rolled up dough
Cut the rolled dough into slices, about 1-2″ slices
Place on cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes at 350 (cookies may appear dough like but as long as the bottom is slightly golden you’re good to go)
Allow cookies to cool
Add frosting to the top of one cookie and add another cookie to the opposite side to create a cookie cake sandwich.
Serve and enjoy!
