Assalaamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaathu everyone!

I love making cookies because they don’t take very long to make and bake AND there is hardly any washing up after compared to when you have to make cakes. It seems like every dish in your kitchen gets used for that. This vanilla sugar cookie recipe is just a basic cookie recipe and you can add whatever you like to it to personalise it. It tastes so good you can have it without any additions though.

I know it’s a bit annoying that you have to separate the egg yolks and the egg whites, but it does give a chewier cookier if you don’t add the egg whites. There are a lot of recipes out there that call for egg whites, such as a meringue-style buttercream. I will be honest with you I just chuck the remaining egg whites and add an extra egg to make an omelette. No one has time to faff about with finding another recipe and then sometimes you end up having more egg whites than you actually have so it’s just a lot longer process.

This vanilla sugar cookie is the perfect recipe for you, and it is so easy for you to make.
