Hey there, cookie lovers! Christmas is just around the corner, and what better way to spread holiday cheer than with some delicious homemade Easy Christmas cookies? We’ve got a super simple recipe for you that even the newest of bakers can master. Let’s dive right into making these festive delights!

Ingredients for Easy Christmas Cookies!:
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Assorted festive sprinkles for decorating
Instructions:

Preheat the Oven: Start by preheating your oven to a toasty 350°F (180°C). Get that holiday warmth going!

Cream Butter and Sugar: In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until it’s a fluffy, sugary cloud. It might take a few minutes, so feel free to put on your favorite festive tunes.

Add the Egg and Vanilla: Crack that egg into the bowl and add the vanilla extract. Mix it all up until it’s one big happy family.

Mix Dry Ingredients: In a another dish, mix together the baking powder, salt, and all-purpose flour. Gradually add this dry mixture to the wet ingredients, making sure everything is well combined.

Roll and Cut: Flour your work surface and roll out the cookie dough to about a 1/4-inch thickness. Now, the fun part – use your favorite holiday cookie cutters to cut out festive shapes. Place the cutouts on a parchment-lined baking sheet.

Decorate: Sprinkle on some holiday magic! Add festive sprinkles or get creative with icing. Make those cookies shine!

Bake: Pop those beautiful creations into the preheated oven and bake for approximately 8-10 minutes or until the edges are lightly golden. Keep an eye on them – you wouldn’t want your cookies to go from festive to fiery.

Cool and Enjoy: Once they’re done baking, let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack. Once they’ve cooled completely, it’s time to enjoy your homemade Christmas cookies!
