Smells like Xmas


  • 1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1¼ cup of brown sugar 
  • 2 eggs (small)
  • 1 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 cups of flour ( I mixed 2cups of whole wheat and 1 cup of white)
  • 1½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • colored sugars for decorating (green and red)


  • In a large mixing bowl, put together butter and sugar until you see a beautiful dough. Add the eggs, vanilla extract and mix until combined.
  • In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt. 
  • Cut dough into shapes with cookie cutters and transfer to a baking sheet. 
  • Sprinkle with colored sugars and bake at 350 degrees for 8-12 minutes. 
  • Cool on baking sheet 5 minutes and enjoy!
