I cannot believe how fast time has flown by! It is mid-December, Christmas is quickly approaching, Hanukkah has started, and Brice and I are heading back to the States in just under two weeks. Crazy!
Despite it being almost 90 degrees outside in an area with very few Christians, there are still a lot of holiday decorations up and Christmas music playing where I’m at. I love feeling in the holiday spirit even when I’m on the other side of the world!
And it wouldn’t be the Christmas season without holiday cookies! You are in luck today because my dear friend Chloe is sharing a delicious Sugar Cookie recipe with you.
Enjoy and happy holidays!!
Hi Bakery Bingo readers!
I’m Chloe and I blog at The Paper Airplane where I share stories about travel, culture, food and outdoor adventure.
Today, I wanted to share my tried and true holiday sugar cookie recipe with you all! I have a huge sweet tooth and when I’m home for the holidays there is nothing better than whipping up a batch of these sugar cookies. Every year my family gets together before Christmas and turns baking cookies into one big party. It’s one of my favorite holiday traditions and the results are pretty sweet. This coveted family cookie recipe makes the best sugar cookies that keep their shape no matter the cookie cutter. The best part is that it is so simple to make consistently excellent sugar cookies that are soft and fluffy every time. I love bringing these cookies to holiday parties or wrapping individually for friends and family.

Preheat oven to 350. Roll out cookies on the thicker side and cut. Place on first sheet and bake on an air bake sheet for 8 – 9 minutes until they rise nice and fluffy. Under-bake slightly and time additional batches accordingly. Move to cooling racks.
