Christmas means cookies. All kinds of cookies. Big ones. Small ones. Crisp ones. And chewy ones. All good in their respective manner but my heart belongs to a soft-baked sugar cookie. Much like these oh so festive Peppermint Sugar cookies. No-chill time required means you can be enjoying one (or two) of these fun festively sprinkled sugar cookies in no time.
1 cup salted butter, room temperature
1 cup white sugar
1 large egg, room temperature
¼ cup honey
¼ cup vanilla yogurt
1 tsp. vanilla extract
½ tsp. peppermint extract
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. coarse sea salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
½ cup Sprinkle Pop "Candy Cane" flavored sprinkles
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.
In the bowl of a stand mixer cream the butter and sugar on high for 3 minutes until light and fluffy with the paddle attachment.
Add in egg, honey, yogurt, vanilla extract, and peppermint extract and mix on high for 3 minutes. Scrape down the sides of the bowl.
Add in flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt into the bowl and mix on low until fully incorporated and a dough forms.
Mix in the sprinkles until just incorporated. Be careful not to overmix.
Using a 1 ½ tbsp. cookie scoop drop the cookie dough onto parchment-lined cookie trays approximately 2 inches apart and bake for 7-9 minutes or until the edges are just barely light golden brown and the centers appear slightly under-baked.
Let cool on the tray for at least 10 minutes before removing it to a cookie rack to fully cool. Enjoy!
