Sugar Cookies

This is a recipe from my dad.  It’s easy to make, it’ll make your house smell so good, and these cookies are absolutely delicious.

  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup melted butter (or, coconut oil!  It’s much healthier.)
  • 2 eggs (or egg substitute, if vegan)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Mix ingredients in large bowl. Add flour slowly.  Stir completely.
  3. Spoon onto greased cookie sheet.
  4. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes.
  5. These are great with frosting, chocolate chips, or shredded coconut, but by no means do they require it.

Happy baking!
