SmartHER Cookies

From Angie:

  • “Used this sugar cookie recipe a couple weekends ago with my 4 year old. You don’t have to chill the dough, which was awesome since my son is not patient at all. Just used milk, powdered sugar and little bit of vanilla for the frosting. They turned out great.”
  • “She had a cult following of celebrities and a local shop in Washington” (another SmartHER reader agreed!)

Best Sugar Cookies Ever. The Jenny Cookies Recipe


  • “My favorite recipe… Super soft and best part is you don’t have to refrigerate!”
  • “You can’t go wrong with recipes from Sally’s baking addiction!”
  • From Robyn:
    “The recipes are old family favorites. The cookie recipe is an old Junior League recipe & the frosting comes from Better Homes & Garden. You do not need to freeze or refrigerate the dough. It is easy & so delicious. Just remember to dip cutters in flour before cutting & try to roll dough evenly for best baking results. Honestly, it’s all about the time together & the memories made & the fingers (& mouths & noses) covered in frosting & sprinkles. Such a beautiful time in your children’s lives!”
