Basic Sugar Cookie Mix


Is there anyone out there who doesn’t like homemade sugar cookies? While many don’t think they have time to make them, almost everyone loves to eat them. That’s why this quick and easy Basic Sugar Cookie Mix will come in handy if made ahead and stored on the pantry shelves. It makes quite a big batch, so if your mixer isn’t large, make it in two batches. Dozens of different cookies, bars, and desserts can be quickly made with this versatile mix. In fact, a batch of basic dough can be mixed, rolled into balls, then in sprinkles and baked in less than 30 minutes. That’s faster than running to the store and purchasing a package of substandard, cardboard store-bought cookies! The bonus is that the house smells divine.

Basic cookies made from this mix are easy enough for older children to make by themselves (although it’s a good idea to have a little adult supervision whenever an oven is being used). For those with some cooking skills, dough made from this mix can be rolled and cut into shapes for all of the holidays or anytime. New recipes using this mix will be posted on the Desserts and Quick Cooking sites at BellaOnline, so watch for them. With this mix, almost everyone (including you) has time to make homemade sugar cookies.
