What do You Need to Make Sugar Cookies

From Wikipedia

A sugar cookie is a cookie with main ingredients such as sugar, flour, butter, eggs, vanilla, and either baking powder or baking soda (depending on the type of sugar used).

Sugar cookies may be formed by hand or rolled and cut into shapes.

They are commonly decorated with additional sugar, icing, sprinkles, or a combination of these.

Decorative shapes and figures can be cut into the rolled-out dough using a cookie cutter.

In North America, sugar cookies are popular during the holidays of Christmas, Halloween, Arbor Day, Groundhog Day, and Hanukkah.

Sugar Cookie Recipe

The sugar cookie that is popular today was created in the 1700s by German Protestant settlers in the Nazareth colony of Pennsylvania.

The cookies were baked in the shape of the state’s symbol, a keystone.

These round, crumbly, buttery cookies came to be known as the Nazareth Cookie.
