Amish Sugar Cookies

Amish Sugar Cookies

I think everyone likes a good sugar cookie recipe. These chewy, buttery gems are great during the holidays because they make a large batch and this recipe doesn’t require any chilling…plus they just melt in your mouth. Now, I have mentioned before…I’m a bit of a cookie snob. Well, maybe not so much a snob as I like mine a certain way~slightly browned with a crunchy edge and a chewy middle, also they need to have some height to them. I’m just not a flat cookie lover. And it can’t be dry. To me, not matter how much coffee or tea you enjoy with cookies, dry ones just don’t quite measure up, in my opinion. Everyone has their favorite kind, and that is fine…it’s what makes this world go round. I tend to always gravitate towards the chocolate/chocolate chip/peanut butter variety so these are a first for the thankful table. They are easy but the batter gets rather thick, so if you have a stand mixer, that’s a good route to take. If not, no worries…a hand mixer will work fine also, you just might have to work a little harder and it may take a little longer to incorporate everything. Before baking you can add sprinkles or sugars if that’s your thing, ice/frost them after baking or just leave them right alone. Either way, they are yummy! Now, I’m off to enjoy one of these with a nice warm cup of coffee! Happy baking!

Sláinte!
