Nothing tastes or smells like Christmas more than Christmas sugar cookies. With this recipe, making cut out cookies cannot get any simpler!  This Easy Sugar Cookie Recipe has just 3 ingredients. You can mix the dough together in just a few minutes.

Plus, the cookie dough is soft. That means it is pliable and easy to roll when you make cut outs. Decorate the cookies with colored sugar and cookie sprinkles before you bake them. Or bake cookies, allow them to cool, and then decorate them with the Easy Royal Frosting recipe.

Have FUN! Prep time: 30 minutes
Bake time: 8-10 minutes
Makes about 4 dozen cookies
