‘Tis the blissful season for sugar cookies (and shortbread cookies and Nanaimo Bars and Fudge) and this easy recipe is a favorite to add to our holiday cookie plates!

Sugar cookies are a classic.  In the past we’ve made rolled sugar cookies which are perfect for decorating but sometimes I just want the cookie without all of the fuss!

This sugar cookie recipe is the perfect solution.  Not only do they not require rolling the dough, they don’t require chilling time or hours of work.  Just a simple cookie dough mixed and baked.

These cookies are baked at a lower temperature than a traditional sugar cookie and the result is a beautifully soft cookie (you’ll want to ensure the edges don’t brown).

Using both butter and shortening gives these cookies a slightly crisp outside with a soft chewy sugar cookie center.  We like them plain but they’re also delicous frosted with lemon buttercream or your favorite buttercream flavor and sprinkles.
