3-Ingredient Sugar Cookies

Updated on December 30, 2017

I love sugar cookies, so I wanted to find a recipe with just three ingredients. And this recipe is what I found. It is quick to make. Most people have these ingredients in their home so you don't have to go out and buy it. I made these cookies for my niece and nephew, and they loved them.

      I rolled them into little balls and sprinkled with icing sugar and sprinkles when they were hot. They turned out really well as my spooned ones were kind of wonky :P

      Simple is good! Have you tried this recipe with coconut oil as a replacement for butter?
