Refrigerated Sugar Cookies
Sprinkles make me happy. It’s true! Last week I was flipping through my phone looking for a photo to share on Instagram. As soon as this cake popped up on my little screen, I smiled.
Sprinkles. They brighten my day.
Slice and Bake Sugar Cookies
Cookies do a pretty good job at making days less ominous, too. This refrigerated sugar cookie recipe is sure to come to your rescue many times in the future.
Because it is a slice and bake sugar cookie recipe that is deliciously simple. Just 6 ingredients and 5 minutes to mix up the cookies themselves. Then you can refrigerate the cookie dough or even freeze it until you need it.
There’s one little hint I have to help your cookies to come out the best they can be.
After you have the dough mixed well, you’ll roll it into a thick log, about 8-10″ long. Be sure to pack this cookie dough roll tightly so you don’t end up with air pockets in your cookies. If you don’t pack the dough tightly, your cookies will spread more than you’d like.
Choose your favorite sprinkles and roll that dough back and forth in the sprinkles until the outside of the dough is completely covered. Then simply wrap the dough logs in plastic wrap.
Refrigerate Sugar Cookie Dough
Refrigerate this cookie dough for at least 2 hours, but you can leave it in the fridge for up to a week. If I’m not going to use the dough within a week, I store it in the freezer.
Slice and bake refrigerated sugar cookies…whenever the craving for cookies (or sprinkles) hits.
