13 Sugar Cookie Recipes To Please Your Sweet Tooth

If there is one basic cookie recipe you should have under your belt it's a classic sugar cookie recipe. Made with basic ingredients that you probably already have in your kitchen, (all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, vanilla extract, eggs, unsalted butter, and lots of granulated sugar), sugar cookies are a snap to put together.

So grab a cookie sheet, put on some music (personally I always play soundtracks to Broadway musicals) and mix up your cookie dough.
