Sparkle Cookies

These are one of the easiest cookies that I make, and they are always a hit. They start with a pouch of Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie mix, and you dress them up with colored sugar, nonpareils, or sprinkles.  I started adding a teaspoon of extract to the dough, vanilla, sometimes lemon, but anything will work.

I highly recommend using a scoop to get uniform cookies. It also allows you to handle them less and keeps them a better texture.  This makes for a beautiful cookie that's got a crispy exterior and are soft and chewy on the inside.

authorHello, my name is Cherine, but you can call me "Chicho" :) I am Lebanese and I live in Paris. Welcome to my internet kitchen, grab a cup of coffee, a macaron and get comfy! This blog is my recipe journal. It's where I write about the recipes that intersect my everyday life. Often the recipes are from my cookbook collection, my magazines, my favorite blogs... sometimes not, they might come from my mother, a friend, a neighbour... or I might write about a recipe I invented myself.
