Of course, we had to start with a holiday staple. This recipe makes 5-6 dozen, and is perfect for decorating with a big group of friends and family. For ingredients you will need 1 pound of butter, 5 cups of flour, a pinch of salt, 1 tsp of baking soda dissolved in 3 tablespoons of milk, 2 eggs, 2 cups of sugar, and 1 tablespoon vanilla. Begin by putting all ingredients in a bowl and mix with your hands until the dough is smooth. Form into a ball, dust with flour, and chill thoroughly. Break into conveniently sized pieces, you will most likely need to add more flour to make the dough easier to handle and roll out. Roll as thin as possible, dust with sugar and nutmeg, then cut into shapes. Bake until light brown at 350 degrees for 12 minutes. Enjoy!

You can’t eat just one. These are the perfect simple alternative to sugar cookies for this holiday season. You will need 1 & ¼ cup flour, 3 tablespoons powdered sugar, ¼ teaspoon kosher salt, ½ teaspoon vanilla extract, 1 stick of butter (softened), and 1 tablespoon red and green sprinkles. Start by pulsing flour, sugar, salt, vanilla, and butter together in a food processor. Then transfer to a bowl and knead until combined. Add sprinkles and continue to knead. On wax paper, roll dough until ½ inch thick. Freeze for 15 minutes before cutting dough into squares and transfer to a baking sheet. Bake until cookies are golden, 18 to 20 minutes at 325 degrees.
