This is the go-to cookie recipe in our house because it is so quick and easy to put together, and it tastes great! It's also a versatile cookie.
You can top it with green and red sprinkles (like we did for our Cookies and Cocoa party), or sprinkle on some cinnamon and sugar and you'll have a great snickerdoodle. You could also roll it in some pink sanding sugar and have something pretty that would work great at a tea party. And if you ever just want some cookie dough, this hits the spot.
CHEWY SUGAR COOKIES
- 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Add the flour, salt, and baking powder into a bowl, mix, and set aside.
In another bowl, add the softened (room temperature) butter, eggs. sugar, and vanilla. Beat with an electric mixer until smooth -- ab0ut a minute.
In three or four batches, add the dry ingredients to the wet, mixing until incorporated.
Lainey's favorite part.
Roll them into one inch balls or roll the dough out using a rolling pin and cut out shapes using a cookie cutter. Top them with sprinkles, sanding sugar, cinnamon and sugar, or anything else you can think of. Place on a Silpat.
Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes. I take them out when there just starts to be the slightest hint of browning along the bottom.
And here's what you get... Soft, chewy, and sweet cookies with a touch of salt. I'm warning you, you will not be able to eat just one.
So I asked my friend, Michelle, from Printabelle, to design a collection of free holiday cookie exchange printables for us, and in the collection, I asked her to include printables for a hot cocoa bar, too.Well, wait until you see our exclusive "Cookies & Cocoa" Christmas party printables... There is everything here you'll need to throw a festive, fun, and tasty party!
The collection includes tented cards with editable text fields. This mean you can type in what you want them to say and print them out, like these below.
I love the 8x10 inch subway art, and how perfectly it fits in with my other decorations.
Here are the invitations. These also have editable text fields so you can personalize them any way you want.
Here's the mini banner and small party circles I used to add detail below my cookie display. There is also a full-size banner in the collection.
We've included recipe cards in case your guests want to write down their cookie recipes to share. Btw, be on the lookout for my all-time favorite sugar cookie recipe later this week. (updated: sugar cookie recipe is up!)
And here's the hot cocoa bar. I framed this 8x10 inch sign and put it behind the fixings.
For fixings, I put out homemade marshmallows, peppermint candies, caramels, cinnamon sticks, chocolate chips, and I accidentally left the whipped cream in the fridge. Oops.
Again, I used the tented cards with the editable text fields to fill out the labels. The collection comes with three pages of printed paper. I used one of them to line my hot cocoa bar tray.
The tented cards up close.
Here are the straw flags I attached to my red and green striped straws for a little extra flair.
And for party favors, I used the thank you cards and attached them to Wilton Christmas cookie cutters. I thought this would make a perfect take home gift.
Hope you like the collection and enjoyed my display! I seriously think I've gained five pounds putting this table together. :)
Also, there are so many items in this collection, I didn't even get a chance to use everything. In addition to what I've shown, you will also find: mini chocolate bar wrappers, large party circles, gift tags, silverware wrappers, another "Cookies and Cocoa" welcome sign, a large "Cookies and Cocoa" banner, and two extra pieces of printed paper. I told you we've got everything!
