One of my Grandmother’s Christmas traditions was to bake soft monstrous size sugar cookies. We absolutely love them; however, baking my Grandma’s cookies is quite the production. Therefore, we only make them once a year. And, yes, that one time a year is at Christmas.

Fortunately, we have a much less time consuming and fewer ingredient “fix” during the Grandma’s Sugar Cookie off-season. Cake Box Sugar Cookies can be prepared in less than 10 minutes! Then after the dough sits in the refrigerator for an hour the baking time is also less than 10 minutes.

After the dough has had time to chill preheat oven to 350* degrees then roll the dough into 1 1/2″ size balls. Roll each dough  ball in sugar then place them on the prepared pan.

Bake for 8-10 minutes (or until the edges turn golden). Allow cookies to rest on baking sheet before transferring them to a cooling rack. Store in an airtight container. Enjoy!
