I love sugar cookies! They are one of my favorite Christmas desserts. And in the last few years I have discovered an easy way to make the most delicious sugar cookies: Krusteaz sugar cookie mix.
Krusteaz makes a mix they call “Bakery Style Sugar Cookies.” I usually bought single batch boxes at my local grocery. Then a couple of weeks ago we went to Costco and found out they have a large bag that makes 7 batches! That’s a lot of sugar cookies – I’m going to have to share.
So here is how easy they are. You aren’t going to believe they are so easy. And once you taste them you’ll never want to make them from scratch again.
Krusteaz Sugar Cookies
2 ½ cups Krusteaz sugar cookie mix
½ cup butter, softened
Colored sugar sprinkles
Preheat oven to 375°. In a large bowl, mix together softened butter and egg until blended. Add sugar cookie mix and combine until well blended. Hand-kneed if necessary. Scoop by teaspoonfuls, roll each spoonful into a ball, and roll the ball of dough in the colored sugar. Place cookie dough balls 2 inches apart on a silpat lined cookie sheet and press down to flatten slightly. Bake for 6 to 7 minutes or until slightly brown around the edges. Remove from cookie sheet and cool on a wire rack. No need to frost – they are sweet enough just as is.
Now doesn’t that sound easy? I made a batch the other night at 9:00 and my family managed to polish them off in just a few days. I really need to find someone to share these with.
Nov. 27 2012 – I agree – they are wonderful. However, Costco is not carrying them this year. Did you find somewhere else? I am searching online now to buy a few big bags. They are great for Christmas, Valentines Day, Easter, etc…. HELP!
Karen, My local Safeway has the Krusteaz mix, but only in individual boxes. Same great mix, but not at the Costco price. On their website – http://www.krusteaz.com/?gclid=CPnkjeG077MCFeGDQgodORAAgg – they have a “Locate our product” link. Maybe you can find out where to get the big bags there. Peace, Linda
Oh I love this! 🙂 And I think we have that brand here, because I got their snickerdoodles and made them for my hubby (his favorite). And yep, they were really good and disappeared fast! Thank you for the cookie help! God bless you as you share some sweetness!
Deb, I remember using Krusteaz pancake mix since forever and it’s the best, and so when I saw their cookie mix I knew it had to be good! And by rolling it in the colored sugar it makes them look so festive. 🙂 I like frosted cookies, too, but they are just so much work. But I’m off work all next week so maybe I’ll make some. Peace, Linda
