Almond Sugar Cookies
Do you have little get-togethers with your family? We’re lucky to have family that lives nearby, but my mom’s side of the family lives a little farther away from us. So whenever we make the road trip up there, usually for a holiday or special occasion, we are sure to make some goodies to bring. This includes cinnamon rolls, peanut butter balls, or anything that we’ve made that needs to be eaten. Christmas is probably the best example- we always have more than enough sweets to snack on…all day, every day. Almost all our cookies get devoured, though, and these Almond Sugar Cookies are no exception.
Sugar Cookies without Eggs
The almond sugar cookies I’m going to share with you today can fit any occasion. They’re an easy mess to clean up. And they are eggless, so these are also good for those who can’t have eggs. These almond sugar cookies, in my opinion are the best “plain” cookie ever. Plain because they’re white and don’t have a strong flavor, but unique because they have the sweetness of almond flavoring inside. Mmmm!
Sugar Cookies with Sprinkles
Don’t you love rolling stuff in sugar? Cookie dough, doughnut holes, your finger- it’s just too good. Sprinkles are even better. You can roll these cookies in any kind of sugar or sprinkle to fit any occasion. Easter, St. Patrick’s Day, Memorial Day, Fourth of July, and before you know it, you’re back to Christmas! There are so many possibilities for these cookies. You could plop them on the pan and just sprinkle sugar to save time, which will make for a puffier cookie. Or you can flatten them a bit like we did and make them fancy by rolling them in colored sprinkles or sugar. Can’t you tell I’m ready for spring with all these sprinkles?? Don’t worry…there’s more sprinkles to come!
