Easy 3 Ingredient Halloween Sugar Cookies

 
My sis and I were talking and out of the blue she says "Remember when we were little and you used to make those sugar cookies?"

I can't believe she remembered.  My sis and haven't baked cookies together in years.  She laughed when I told her I still bake those cookies.

The recipe was simple: 1 stick of butter, some sugar and flour.  
Sometimes we would get all fancy and mix in some of the flavored extracts my mom kept in the pantry or top the cookies with sugary sprinkles or a dusting of sugar.
Nothing compares to the smell of cookies baking in the oven and it's one of my favorite ways to spend quality time with the kids. I always enlist the aid of my three boys and little lady when I'm in the kitchen.  

Funny seeing my kids whipping up stuff in the kitchen on their own, making their own snacks or following along a recipe from one of my cookbooks. 
What makes this recipe so perfect is that it's only 3 ingredients and even though the first batch rarely turns out just right, you can scrounge up enough cookie bits while waiting for the next batch to finish baking.
Have you ever baked these 3 ingredient sugar cookies before?  What's your favorite cookie to bake?

Who can go wrong with sugar cookies? I think sugar cookies are everybody's favorite. I can bet this will be made in many households for this time of the year!

This will be a fun idea to do on Halloween. Make some sugar cookies, eat them and then go out trick-or-treating. That sounds like a fun night.

Wow, that's super simple! It's one of our family traditions to decorate sugar cookies for each holiday :)

I love the simplicity of these cookies! Sometimes, you just want to have an easy recipe, while contributing to a party of family get together!
I've only ever thought of making cut out sugar cookies for Christmas. But I should make them for all the holidays since they make cookie cutters for every occasion.

You had me at three ingredients! I love a great classic sugar cookie.

Uh OH! This is dangerous for me to read this recipe because sugar cookies are my fav and I crave them all the time. They just take so long to make that I get busy and dont do it. But 3 ingredients?!?! YAY!
Marysa said…
I love that this is such a simple recipe. Doesn't need to be full of a bunch of junk! I don't know that I have made sugar cookies before, at least not for Halloween. My kids would have so much fun making and decorating these!

I guess doing this will be a lot of fun. I imagine me and my sister doing and preparing this makes me very much excited. Perfect for out Halloween party.

I am not much of a baker but my daughter is. One of the many cookies she makes, the sugar cookies are my favorite.
Amanda said…
I just love baking with my kids just like you. The only problem is that my pantry is hardly ever stocked. Your recipe is most definitely going to solve that problem with only 3 simple ingredients.

I love this sugar cookie recipe. Only three ingredients and the steps are so easy to follow. I will get some Halloween themed cookie cutters first then I will make these for my family.
