Welcome to Pink Slip Gourmet! This recipe is for those who have purchased or been gifted our sugar cookie mix. Lucky you! With no mixer needed, this is a super easy recipe that comes together quickly and is delicious. Want to make it even better? You can add in any type of chips (chocolate, peanut butter, butterscotch, etc) your heart desires. Just mix them in at the end before rolling the dough balls. This jar will make a dozen cookies. Let's get started!
Additional ingredients needed:
Sprinkles/saminding sugar* or regular granulated sugar (optional)
1 large egg, slightly beaten
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with a Silpat pad or parchment paper. Place a few tablespoons of the sprinkles or sugar in a small bowl and set aside.
Pour jarred cookie mix ingredients into a medium sized bowl and combine well using whisk. Add egg, extract and butter. Using a large spoon or spatula, mix the wet and dry ingredients until just combined.
Use the dough immediately or place in the refrigerator for 15 minutes to chill slightly, making it less sticky when rolling.
Using your hands or a dough scoop, form the dough into 1.5 inch balls. Roll each ball in the bowl of sugar and place on the prepared baking sheet with a few inches between each dough ball.
If you did not chill the dough, bake the cookies for 9-10 minutes. If chilled, bake for 11- 12 minutes**. Leave the cookies on the baking sheet to finish fully baking/cool down for 5 minutes. Enjoy!
**All ovens are different - check the cookies often so they do not over-bake. You simply want to see slightly golden edges and the center looking just barely cooked. They will continue to bake on the baking sheet as they cool.
