Amish Drop Sugar Cookies
"Amish drop sugar cookies are thick, puffy, soft, and coated in sparkling sugar! You can frost them, glaze them, or add sprinkles, too. Perfect for Christmas cookie trays and just about any other holiday celebration! Why You’ll Love this Drop Sugar Cookies Recipe: Amish and Mennonite bakers produce some of the best baked goods available. I’ve collected a number of their cookbooks over the years, and drop sugar cookies are a constant in these collections. I’ve tweaked a variety of different Amish recipes to come up with our own drop sugar cookie recipe, which we think is absolute perfection (while still staying true to the authentic version). Here’s why you’ll love them, too: - Simple. No fancy or hard-to-find ingredients here! These old fashioned treats are made with common kitchen staples, which come together in a delicious way. They’re not too sweet, they’re buttery, and they’re totally nostalgic. - Easy. Since you don’t have to roll-out the dough with a rolling pin or cut-out the dough with cookie cutters, this is a quick and easy recipe that yields a lot of treats with minimal effort. - No Chill. Unlike many sugar cookie recipes, you do not need to chill this dough. You can bake the cookies right away, and they won’t spread too thin. - Soft and Thick. If you love soft, thick sugar cookies that you can sink your teeth into, then this is the recipe for you! They almost have a cake-like texture. - Versatile. I kept it simple with coarse sugar here, but you can get creative and festive with your cookie decorations. Frost them with cream cheese icing, use a rich buttercream frosting, drizzle with a simple powdered sugar glaze, or sprinkle with colored sugar or sprinkles for each holiday."
