Butter Flavored Sugar Cookies

These cookies are no joke. Trust me when I tell you that you can’t eat just one! Sugar cookies are great. In fact, they’re fantastic! But, something magical happens when you add butter flavoring to sugar cookies (magical I tell you!). The neat part is that the butter flavor is not obvious. However, the butter flavor takes an ordinary sugar cookie to the next level …. beyond mouthwatering! My butter flavored sugar cookies have an extra hint of vanilla too. You MUST try this simple twist if you plan on making sugar cookies anytime soon.
Plus, they are so easy to bake <—– that’s how I roll.

Butter Flavored Sugar Cookies! Drool.....

Butter Flavored Sugar Cookies

The holidays are almost here, and I’m celebrating with these delicious Christmas sugar cookies! These cookies are an easy treat that’s the perfect addition to any holiday gathering. You don’t have to wait just for the holidays to make them though. If you love them as much as we do, you can bake them all year round.

This sugar cookie recipe is adapted from my easy sugar cookie recipe.  They melt in your mouth and I’m drooling just thinking about them! The secret ingredient to these sugar cookies is Butter Vanilla emulsion flavoring (I use THIS one)
