Sugar Cookies

Sugar cookies are pretty universal Christmas fare—but really, there is a lot of room for inventiveness. You can cut them into different shapes, liberally douse them in multicoloured sprinkles, or smother them in icing. Maybe all three! This is another family recipe of mine that’s been a part of our Christmas traditions throughout the ages.


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup cream butter
  • 3 eggs beaten
  • 3 cups flour
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla


Cream butter and add sugar gradually. Add 3 beaten eggs and then the vanilla. Stir in flour and baking powder. Chill for 2-3 hours.

Roll to ¼-inch thickness. Cut out desired shapes. Bake at 350°F for 8-12 minutes.
