Sugar Cookies
This basic cookie recipe is very well tried and trusted – great for when you want something to go with a cup of coffee or you just like having a fail-safe play in the kitchen. I don’t like making huge batches of cookies because, quite frankly, I will just sit down and eat them in one fell swoop – call it portion control or a distinct lack of will power, but small batches always work for me. Of course, if you have guests or are baking for a crowd, simply double, triple or quadruple the quantities to suit. Just don’t skip the refrigeration step or your cookies will fall more than a little flat. Once chilled, the dough keeps in the fridge for up to 1 week, so you can have freshly baked cookies in around 20 minutes. And check out the variations, too – there’s something for everyone… personally, I like the stuffed sandwiches the best but maybe that’s because I’m greedy. Enjoy! — Aine Carlin, Keep it Vegan.

Patti Paige, author of You Can’t Judge a Cookie By Its Cutter, has some great ideas for using her sugar cookie dough, too.

There's no better way to turn your baked goods into a holiday specialty than by making them into an ornament. I'll poke a whole through the top of the cookies before baking so that I can string a ribbon through. Once they're done, I'll decorate them with colored icing or edible glitter to give them a nice holiday glow.
