No matter what the holiday or occasion, kids love to have fun making fun and creative cookies.

The best plan is to have everything ready to go since kids can lose interest fast if you aren’t prepared. So make your batter and frosting and have all those fun sprinkles ready to utilize.

This basic sugar cookie batter makes approximately 9 cups and can make up to ten different quick and easy cookies and the batter will keep for several weeks at room temperature in a tightly sealed container.

4 Cups Sifted Flour

4 Cups Sugar

1.5 Cups Nonfat dry milk powder

1.5 Tablespoon Baking Powder

1.5 teaspoon salt

Place all ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. Sift this mixture twice. Store in a sealed container until ready to use.

Sugar Cookies (Makes approx. 3 dozen)

2 Cups of the basic mix

1/2 Cup melted butter

1 Egg slightly beaten

1 teaspoon vanilla

Flour your hands and shape into 1 inch balls. Place on a well greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 F for 12-15 minutes. Cool on a wire to cool

Frosting: Mix 1/2 Cup of powdered sugar with 2 Tablespoons of milk. Stir well. Frosting should be slightly thin to spoon in a circle on each warm cookie. Let frosting dry to the touch and Enjoy!
