Soft Sugar Cookies

Soft pillow-y sugar cookies that melt in your mouth with every bite.

Food shouldn’t be a scary thing. It should bring joy to your life. We like to tell people to eat what makes you happy – whether it’s healthy or not. Eat what makes you happy and what your body needs and you’ll be okay. Why are we saying this? Well today’s recipe makes us so happy. We’ve never been people to say no to delicious food just because it’s considered unhealthy. Life’s about balance and enjoyment – so what kind of food makes us happy? Sprinkles, duh!

Sprinkles aren’t exactly food, but how many of you don’t smile when you see a donut covered in sprinkles? Those that don’t, are monsters. We’re not monsters, we understand that the sight of sprinkles can instantly put you in a better mood. That sprinkles remind everyone of when they were a kid. That’s why we love the Soft Sugar Cookies so much. It’s the ultimate comfort dessert and just makes you feel like a kid again.
