Old-Fashioned Sugar Cookies remind me of cookies my grandma made as a school cook. She made the most wonderful cookies. 

When I was a girl, my grandma worked as a school cook at Hutton Elementary in Chanute, Kansas. Before I was in kindergarten, my mom used to stop by to say hi when we were in town getting groceries. I don’t remember a time when grandma didn’t offer us cookies. Oatmeal Raisin. Peanut Butter. Sugar. Big, homemade, freshly made, wonderful cookies.

 

Old-Fashioned Sugar Cookies are Giant Disks of Wonder

Through the years, I’ve tried lots of sugar cookie recipes, but it wasn’t until this one that I hit gold. These cookies have that marvelous sugary flavor that I’d been seeking all these years.

I owe it to my “secret” ingredient. Princess Cake and Cookie Bakery Emulsion. Oh my goodness! Don’t put it off. Order some of this wonderful flavoring now! You won’t regret it. You will be amazed at the flavor it brings to baked goods!

Plus, these cookies are giant disks of wonder. They spread out on the pan to make a lovely mix of crispy-chewiness. I simply adore Old-Fashioned Sugar Cookies.

Another sweet aspect to these cookies is that they are very quick to make up. Since they only make a dozen you can make them up in less than a hour. A quick and easy dessert for surprise company. Or when you just have a craving for them. Which you will. I promise.
