I hope everyone had as wonderful a Thanksgiving as I did, full of family and good food! Our dessert table spread was pecan pumpkin bourbon pie, pumpkin pie, pumpkin pie bars, and banana cream pie; needless to say, we were a happy crew. 

I really love sugar cookies, and I really love baking, but even I don’t always feel like spending several hours to roll and cut out sugar cookies. It’s officially the Christmas season, and as my first cookies in what will be a very cookie-filled December, I’m sharing a recipe for no-roll sugar cookies. Instead, you just scoop them into balls, roll em in sugar, and bake them. They are definitely a different flavor than cutouts, but a good one. No-Roll Sugar Cookies

While most cookies are best when soft, these ones are seriously not to be over baked. Even just a couple extra minutes will add a crunch that just isn’t as good as the soft ones. Since they’re rolled in sugar, it’s a little hard to tell when they’re done but trust me, you don’t want to keep baking if in doubt. Just take them out of the oven, I promise it’s the right thing to do. 

Without further adieu, here’s the kickoff recipe to my Christmas cookies, with many more to come. Enjoy!
