Bake with Me! Sugar Cookies + More – Blogmas Day 8

I’m no Martha Stewart, but I like to think that I throw down in the kitchen – at least when it comes to making cookies. I’m a stress baker and a naturally anxious person, which means I’ve probably made 1,000+ cookies in my lifetime. Right now, it’s finals season and I’m throwing a Christmas shindig, so it was the perfect opportunity to commit my life and soul to my oven!

I used Betty Crocker’s Best No-Roll Sugar Cookies recipe. I wanted to test whether or not these cookies were legit, because I’m always a little skeptical when anyone claims that their recipe is the “best.” How does Betty know this information? Was she in a baking lab comparing ingredients and determined that this combination scientifically had the best fluffiness to crispiness ratio? Has she baked every rival sugar cookie and had it reviewed by a group of her peers? Betty, please share your methods.

On the website they said to sprinkle colored sugar on the cookies, but that was a little too boring for me. Save sugar toppings for snickerdoodles and peanut butter cookies, please. I decided to put sprinkles on my cookies for a little more pizazz.

Then my roommate came to help, and let’s just say we got a little wild. Cookies were flattened, chocolate was pressed in, and peppermints were smashed. Did I mention we baked these at around midnight? Everything gets a little wild at midnight.

In the end, the dough led to the creation of 4 different types of cookies: plain janes, a few Hershey’s Kiss cookies, a lot of sprinkly fantastics, and some peppermint candy mixes.

Now it’s time for the results. Did Betty Crocker really create a recipe for the best no-roll sugar cookies? Eh, I don’t think so. I like a cookie with a little more chew, and these ones are a bit too crispy for my taste. Plus, they’re low key kind of bland, but I did my best!
