Christmas is less than a week away and Hanukkah starts tomorrow… time to start baking (if you haven’t already). These cookies bring me back to when I was a kid, helping mom bake before the whole family came over on Christmas Eve. Sugar cookies are a must have for your holiday get together. They are so simple, but everyone loves them! Plus, it gives you and the kids a chance to get creative and decorate with frosting, sprinkles, or just about anything you want.
Holiday Sugar Cookies
- 3/4 cup Kelapo coconut oil, softened
- 1 cup white sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- Sprinkles or frosting to decorate
In a large bowl, “cream” together coconut oil and sugar until smooth. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Stir in the flour, baking powder, and salt. Cover, and chill dough for at least one hour.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Roll out dough on floured surface 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick. Cut into shapes with any cookie cutter. Place cookies 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Add sprinkles, if using.
Bake 6 to 8 minutes in preheated oven. Cool completely. Decorate!
