3 Ingredient Sugar Cookies

I decided to bake in my new kitchen today!
I just wanted a small batch of something since the holidays are fast approaching and I know I am going to be making all our favourite treats for that.

These super simple sugar cookies only have 3 ingredients! They are crisp on the edges and chewy in the centre and it only made 8 cookies, which was perfect.

I found this amazing chocolate chip cookie spread at Superstore recently and I decided that it would be perfect sandwiched between these simple cookies.

What you need,

¼ cup + 3 tbsp. granulated sugar
4 tbsp. butter, at room temperature
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
¼ cup chocolate chip cookie dough spread, or nutella or jam would even be fantastic!

Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with a non-stick mat.

Place the 3 tablespoons of sugar in a small bowl, set aside.

In a medium bowl combine the sugar and butter, mix using an electric hand mixer until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add the flour and mix again until just combined. The dough may look a bit crumbly but it will come together.

Using a tablespoon of dough, roll into a ball and then roll the ball into the sugar.
Place the dough balls on the prepared sheet about 1 inch apart. They will spread out a bit.

Bake for 12-14 minutes until brown and crisp on the edges.
Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.

Let the cookies cool completely before spreading on the filling.

Store the cookies in an airtight container for 2-3 days.

These little sandwich cookies are great. I love that it only makes 4 sandwich cookies, the perfect amount for 2 people.
