Sweet Holidays!

The holidays are upon us and we're eager to get in the kitchen and make all of our favorite things. Sugar cookies are a holiday staple loved by almost all and we've found a recipe for Simply Splendid Sugar Cookies that we can't resist sharing! These would be a wonderful addition to any holiday get-together or can be left as treats for Santa! And our holiday entertaining items add your style to your holiday parties!

1. Chevron Holiday Wine Tag  2. Plaid Red & Teal Small Tray  3. Beverage Napkin with Icon  4. Wreath Platter  5. Bursts Teal Square Tray  6. Black Watch Plaid Coasters  7. Gingerbread Plate  8. Cup with Icon Ornament

Simply Splendid Sugar Cookies
2 sticks (½ pound) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 ½ cups confectioners' sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon fine salt
1 large egg
1 ⅓ cups white whole-wheat flour, such as King Arthur
1 ⅓ cup unbleached all-purpose flour
White sugar sprinkles, for rolling

1. Arrange the racks in upper and lower thirds of the oven and preheat the oven to 375°F. Get out 2 large cookie sheets and line with parchment paper. Place some white sugar sprinkles in a small bowl.

2. Prepare dough: Cream the butter and sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer until fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add the vanilla, baking soda and salt and beat at medium speed until incorporated. Add the egg and beat until incorporated. Add the flours and mix at low speed until blended, scraping down the bowl once or twice.

3. Scoop up enough dough to form into a 1-inch ball, rolling between the palms until smooth. Roll the dough ball in sugar sprinkles and then place on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat, arranging a dozen coated dough balls evenly spaced on each sheet and then, using a drinking glass, press on dough balls to flatten to about 1/4 inch thick.

4. Bake cookies about 12 minutes, switching and rotating the pans half way through, until cookies are golden and somewhat firm to the touch. Transfer cookies with a metal spatula to racks and let cool completely. Repeat with remaining dough.
