Sugar Cookies Plain And Simple

Sugar Cookies Plain And Simple

Good morning. And merry Christmas! If like me, you celebrated Christmas Eve last night, you will probably be looking to taking it easy today. Maybe you’re planning to go out for a long walk in the countryside. Or maybe you want to stay in your pyjamas all day and watch Love Actually 3 times in a row.

If you’re celebrating today, I bet you’re already in the kitchen checking oven temperatures and making a mental inventory of how many bottles of red and white wine you have. Maybe, you’re going to have to make a last minute trip to the supermarket because you forgot to buy milk (it can happen).

Not everyone celebrates Christmas. Today could be just like any other day. But, whatever it is you are planning to do today, it is always a good day to bake. So let’s talk sugar cookies.


Sugar cookies and easy and quick to make. Adding some festive decorations makes them perfect for a last minute addition to your Christmas coffee. Or tie a red bow around a stack of these lovelies and give it someone as a gift.

Have a lovely Christmas today.


(makes about 20 cookies)

250g flour

100g sugar

100g butter, softened

1 egg

8g/1tbsp vanilla sugar


Use a standmixer or a handmixer to cream the sugar, vanilla sugar and butter together until the mixture is creamy and fluffy.

Add the egg and keep mixing until completely incorporated.

Add the flour and mix until the dough forms a smooth ball.

Flatten the ball slightly, wrap in clingfilm and cool in the refrigerator for 1 hour.

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C.

Take the dough out of the fridge. Flour your work surface and rolling pin. Roll out the dough to about 1/2cm thick. Cut out any shapes you like.

Place the cookies on a lined baking tray. Bake for 10-15 minutes, until they start to turn golden.

Let the cookies cool on a wire rack.
