Classic Vanilla Sugar Cookies

These cookies are an all time American favourite, a recipe I have come across in various cookie books I own. Yesterday I received two books from amazon, one of them being The Good Cookie by Tish Boyle, the recipe for Vanilla Sugar Cookies also features in the book. I decided that I wasn't going to wait a minute longer to bake up these babies, plus I also have the perfect excuse, my son has some friends coming over after school today for a session of Halo on Xbox live, and I know they will go down a treat. Where do I begin to describe how gorgeous these cookies are? They have the most wonderfully tender texture, with the added crunchy exterior from the sprinkled coarse sugar on top. I will definitely be making them over and over again!


Mmm! Melt-in-your-mouth sugar cookies.

Hi Mrs B

Thanks sweetie. I got my coloured sugar at a specialist shop I sometimes visit in Walton-Upon-Thames. But they also have a website you can order from. http://www.blueribbons.co.uk/

You lucky thing going to the states, you will be able to come across lots of wonderful sprinkles there.
