When the holidays are right around the corner, you'll need the yummiest cookies to add extra sweetness to this special time of year. These classic sugar cookies are chewy and sweet, with a crunch of sparkling sugar on top. You can make them in a traditional round shape, or make them a little more festive by using holiday-themed cookie cutters.
The recipe below will create about two dozen cookies but you can always make more or less with appropriate baking time adjustments. Besides being a holiday treat, these cookies are also ideal for a birthday party, outdoor gathering, or nearly any other event. Get kids involved in the kitchen by letting them decorate the cookies with colored frosting and sprinkles.
