My kids are like me, they have a huge sugar tooth and sometimes mommy needs to embrace that to make everyone happy. Who doesn’t love cookies? This pink sugar cookies recipe is easy but satisfies those sugar cravings.
We try to keep major sweets out of the house but for special occasions, we’ll go all out with our sugary treats. It makes for lots of fun with my normally crazy kids but they love it.
I can only handle so much so it’s not an everyday occasion. If you’re looking for a special treat or for an afternoon pick me up, get out your baking supplies and whip up some cookies. Your kids will thank you.

- 1 cup Butter (2 sticks) – Softened at room temperature
- 2 tsp Vanilla extract

In a large mixing bowl, add the butter and sugar. With an electric mixer on medium speed, cream for 2-3 minutes or until light and fluffy.
Add the eggs, one at a time and mix on medium speed until well combined. Add the vanilla and mix to blend.
