McCormick Spiced Springtime Sugar Cookies




I have a major sweet tooth and bake something to satisfy it about once a week. However, I have a hard time finding recipes that aren't overly sweet or just plain boring. Cookies are the worst offenders; I love chocolate chip, but most other varieties leave me wanting something more. This is particularly true of sugar cookies. They look great decorated, but the actual cookie is soft and mundane. A recent issue of Martha Stewart Living had an advertisement for McCormick with a recipe for spiced springtime sugar cookies that looked out of the ordinary.

All the ingredients used in this recipe are simple and I had all of them on hand in my pantry. The prep work is super minimal. I let my dough sit in the fridge overnight. When it came out of the fridge, it was too cold to work properly, so I would suggest only putting it in for a couple hours. My oven tends to run hot, so my cookies took slightly less than the 8-10 minutes suggested.

Overall, this was a great spin on the traditional sugar cookie. My kids loved the taste and my husband and I appreciated that they weren't run-of-the-mill. The cookies taste slightly spicy from the nutmeg and cinnamon, which produces a nice undertone to the sweetness. This is one cookie recipe that I will definitely be using again.

For the recipe go to McCormick Spiced Springtime Sugar Cookies.
