This post is in partnership with McCormick.
11 years ago I rolled out my first batch of cookie dough, never even considering a future in baking. I was a stay at home mom doing something creative in the kitchen. Over a decade later, I’m still having fun in the kitchen, now at a destination bake shop just north of Seattle.
My signature cookie recipe, a “jenny cookie”, has been enjoyed by well known celebs, large brands and continues to impress our customers at Jenny Cookies Bake Shop. I teach sold-out cookie workshops once a month to aspiring cookie bakers and I’ve yet to meet someone who doesn’t like the cookies. They’re the best!!
My favorite thing about this recipe is that it’s no-fail. You really can’t mess this up! The dough is pliable and easy to work with. It’s quick to cool in the fridge without requiring hours and hours of refrigeration and nothing crazy on the decorating front.
I only use the best ingredients in my sugar cookies. From real butter and fresh eggs to McCormick Pure Vanilla, high quality ingredients guarantee a perfect cookie every time!
These sugar cookies aren’t only easy to make, they’re delicious. Once you’ve mastered the dough and baking, then comes the fun part: decorating. I like to use soft icing colors, like this pink you see below made with McCormick red food color. I strive to teach decorating techniques that are both simple and beautiful. One of my go-to ways to decorate is to coat my buttercream cookies in sanding sugar. It’s forgiving and hides any imperfections in your work. Great for kids and newbies!
These sugared heart cookies are the perfect way to show anyone from your sweetie to your colleagues that you care!
Here’s a quick video for decorating:
