Sugar Cookies via The Little Chef

Ready!

Halloween is officially over, and the holidays are right around the corner. This sugar cookie recipe is simple, classic sugar cookie that I often made for holiday parties and dinners. It has been requested on a number of occasions. I found this recipe in one of my Grandmother’s old cookbooks, and I had actually lost it for awhile. Since these sugar cookies have always been such a hit, I wanted to find the recipe for the upcoming holiday season. My mother finally found the recipe, and I thought it would be a good cookie recipe for my daughter and I to make together.

Since it is short and sweet, I could keep the attention of my energetic 4 year old long enough for her to finish the cookies. These sugar cookies are soft and moist. There is a subtle hint of lemon that is not too overpowering. They are great just as plain sugar cookies. I let my daughter decorate half of them with frosting and leftover Halloween candy just to let her experiment. We both enjoyed are time together, and she finished with a nice sugar high after she consumed handfuls of sugar, candy, and green frosting. Well worth it!

    My granddaughter does indeed love to help in the kitchen. When I start something, she drags the bar stool around to help.
