❤️ Sugar Cookies ... EASY! Perfect to make with your kids ... so delicious! https://www.quick-german-recipes.com/easy-sugar-cookie-recipe.html
#sugarcookies #germanrecipe #justlikeoma

My easy sugar cookie recipe, aka Zuckerplätzchen, can easily be adapted to meet all your needs. That's exactly what my Facebook Fan, Melissa McInnes, did. Her Christmas cookies, shown below, were made with this recipe. Delicious and easy! That's why these are included on my Quick German Recipes site!

It's an easy dessert recipe I loved using when our boys were young. They enjoyed using the cookie cutters, and anything else that would work, to create something special. 

Then would come the decorating. Icing and sprinkles and chocolate chips and raisins and nuts and M & M's and lots of LOVE ... that's what makes these German cookies so special.
