Easy & Delicious Christmas Sugar Cookies

If you’re looking for an easy Christmas Sugar Cookie recipe that delivers soft, chewy, deliciously buttery cookies every time- you’ve come to the right place. This is my go-to recipe, and it never fails.

What I love about these cookies (besides how delicious they are) is that they aren’t fussy like other sugar cookies. You don’t have to chill the dough. There’s no rolling out, cutting or time-consuming decorating. And it calls for basic ingredients that I always have on hand. Simply whip up the dough, roll into balls, dip into whatever sprinkles you like, and bake! These cute little cookies are perfect for Christmas parties, holiday platters, or popping into a cellophane bag for gifting. They are a huge hit wherever I take them!

Ingredients You Need to Make these Christmas Sugar Cookies:

  • All-Purpose Flour
  • Butter
  • Granulated Sugar
  • Egg
  • Vanilla Extract
  • Baking Powder
  • Baking Soda
  • Salt
  • Sprinkles
Ingredients you need to make easy christmas sugar cookies with sprinkles.

How to Make these Easy Christmas Sugar Cookies:

  1. Beat the butter and sugar. Put the softened butter and sugar into a mixer and beat until light and fluffy. It should take 3-4 minutes. Don’t skip this step- you want to work some air into the mixture. Add egg and vanilla and continue beating until lightened in color.
  2. Combine the dry ingredients. Whisk together the dry ingredients in a medium bowl. Add to the wet ingredients and stir just until combined.
  3. Roll into balls. Scoop out the dough (about 2 tablespoons each) and roll into balls.
  4. Dip into sprinkles. Pour the sprinkles you want to use into a shallow bowl. Dip the top and sides of the sugar cookie dough into the sprinkles and place onto a parchment lined baking sheet. Avoid getting sprinkles on the bottom of the cookie- they can melt and burn.
  5. Bake. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 8-10 minutes or until you see a slight crack on top. Take care not to over bake them- otherwise you won’t end up with a soft and chewy cookie. They will continue to set up as they cool.

Tips & Suggestions

Don’t overbake!

The secret to soft and chewy sugar cookies is to pull them from the oven when they are still soft! They will continue to set up as they cool so don’t be tempted to leave them in the oven if they still look a little underbaked. That’s what you want.

Yes! I love freezing cooking dough. Roll the dough into balls and dip into sprinkles. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet and chill until the balls are solid. Then place them in a freezer bag until you are ready to bake. For best results, use within 2-3 months. When you’re ready to bake, place the frozen dough balls on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake as directed, adding 2 minutes to the bake time.

How should I store leftover sugar cookies?

Make sure your cookies are completely cooled before storing. Place in an airtight container and store at room temperature for 2-3 days. They won’t be bad after that, but the texture and flavor won’t be quite as good. For longer storage, place the cookies in an airtight container or ziplock bag in the freezer.

How can I keep my sugar cookies from spreading?

  • Make sure you are using parchment paper on your baking sheet. This will help your cookies hold its shape.
  • Chilling the dough before baking will also help prevent spreading during baking.
  • Make sure your oven temperature is accurate. All ovens bake differently, so use an oven thermometer to figure out how your oven is heating and adjust accordingly.
  • Check your baking powder. The baking powder will help it puff up- not out! Once opened, baking powder will stay fresh for 9-12 months. To test your baking powder, add 1/2 teaspoon into a cup of hot water. If it immediately fizzles, you’re good to go. If not, time to toss it.
  • Avoid overcrowding the baking sheet. Give each ball of dough at least 2 inches of space around it to bake properly.

Is there a way to make the natural dye without having a juicer? I have beet puree (roasted beets, tiny bit water and blended smooth) but no juicer. Also, could the AP flour in the cookie recipe be substituted for white whole wheat? Thanks!!

Can you use organic canned white beans? I don’t usually use dry beans, but wondering if the canned would work as well, thanks

Sarah- while I haven’t tried it, I think it would turn out fine. You may get more of a beet flavor than juicing it would give you. Another option could be some POM juice (it looked about the same color last time I noticed it in the grocery store).
And definitely a YES on the whole wheat flour.

100% for sure. In fact, I did this weekend. The pureed and cooked beans were from my sister in law Beth, but I was in a hurry, and had some canned beans, so I used those.

Thank you for sharing. I am going to try this recipe this week. I make a lot of things from scratch and I don’t use food colorings so we don’t get a lot of artificial coloring in our diet, but we are gluten free, and try to be most of the time dairy free. My oldest son (4) had eczema and have noticed since he was little he had a lot of energy and or would turn mean quickly. He is a great little boy and it made me think about the food he was eating. We eat well, he loves his veggies and we juice or do smoothies. What I started to look at was our gluten intake. We took out gluten and started seeing a difference. And once when he got gluten without me knowing it, he had turned into another person. I knew then gluten for him was not his friend. He is know a calmer person and smiles more. Again, we can’t wait to try these cookies.

Thanks for sharing Kristie! It’s one of those things that you can be skeptical it will help until it does! Then, it’s quite amazing. 🙂

I can vouch for the cookies. I ate them at the Barney Birthday party and literally had no idea they had anything different about them. They were SO delicious. I love healthy foods, but won’t compromise flavor in sweets for health – a dessert is a dessert for me – but in this case there was NO compromise! I now use the bean puree in my banana muffins as well – and like Beth said, they are more moist because the beans hold the moisture better.

Amy is there any way we could figure out a carb count on these cookies? I am thinking all that protein just might make it worth trying out for Hannah. I have worried so much about how she will feel different this holiday season with her new diagnosis, so if I made these cookies then maybe the protein would help to keep her sugars less crazy and more stable.

Thank you so much for sharing this. My daughter cannot have food dyes. We knew from when she was a toddler it made her behavior bad. My husband had the same problem when he was a child, so we knew it was a possibility with our daughter. This time of year is hard on her. So much has red dye that she can’t eat. We will be making these soon. Hope you have a blessed Christmas.

My son turns 7 tomorrow. He has been dye free for just shy of 2 years. To this day, he won’t touch anything unless he is certain it contains no dye. Before dye free, he would get angry very quickly and completely loose control of himself. He would scream for 45 minutes simply because he was hoping for different thing for dinner…or because he didn’t know where his pajamas were…not because he didn’t like what we were having or didn’t want to go to bed….After removing food dye he is COMPLETELY different. He knows he feels bad if he has stuff he shouldn’t and NEVER fights us on it. Most people don’t believe me until they witness him happily walk away from candy or cupcakes he is unsure about. Thanks for bringing to light this issue. I find it very sad that that US allows dyes and such in so many things that many other countries do not allow. ALSO….(because this post is not long enough) I feel that India Tree is a good “on hand” dye. But I will say that their sugar sprinkles are a must at our house for Christmas cookes and birthday cupcakes! We are very healthy eaters around here…but we do not skimp on birthdays!

I’ve used beet powder and spinach powder that I purchased from Amazon. The sugar cookies had deep, vibrant color and still tasted like a sugar cookie. I don’t have a juicer, so I tried the powder. Oh, I bought carrot powder in hopes of making orange pumpkin cookies – total failure! Thanks.

Oh my, YES!!! We had a homeopath tell us our daughter was intolerant to dyes which was causing behavior problems. I didn’t put much stock in it and just kind of forgot about it until Christmas a few years ago when she helped me make red jello with oranges. That night (Christmas Eve!), after eating the jello, she lay on her bed sobbing and saying, “I’m so sad. Mommy, why am I so sad?” I remembered what the homeopath said. We can always tell when she eats something with dyes. She gets very mean and defiant and acts like a different little girl. Her behavior is truly shocking. Thanks for sharing this recipe. She loves to decorate cookies, but hasn’t been able to because of the dyes. Merry Christmas!

Our little girl (almost 7) has been dye-free for around 3 years now. She would get hyperactive after sugar-free freezies and have night terrors almost every night, followed by vomiting. A friend told us about the artificial colours in food, medicines, toothpaste – and, yes, marshmallows – and its effects. A few days after we cut artificial dyes from her diet (and toothpaste), her night terrors stopped. Now it’s rare she ever has one and, if she does, we can track it to something that day that had colour in it. Tartrazine has a terrible effect on her, for sure! She’s really good about stepping away from foods with colour as she knows what it makes her feel like. I know European countries are a lot more strict about this sort of thing – hope North America will catch up soon. LOVE the cookies, by the way!!

Making these for my daughters’ school parties on Friday, so I did a test batch tonight. My frosting didn’t look good. I waited until it was white and fluffy, but it wasn’t spreadable at all–once i stopped beating it, it started to separate. I did melt the coconut oil, so maybe that was the problem? I don’t know how else to soften coconut oil. I used it as glaze over the cookies; we’ll see how it sets.

Oh no Carrie! I will try it again today and see how it goes. You could always use your favorite fool-proof frosting recipe and still dye it with the beets or spinach.

Hi Again Carrie- so, I just made some more, and the frosting turned out pretty good. I softened the coconut oil with just 15 seconds in the microwave. Then, after I spread the frosting, I put the cookies in the fridge to firm up the frosting. It spread pretty well. Make sure your beans are thoroughly pureed as well- no chunks!

I appreciate the feedback. I think for the purpose of the classroom cookies, I’ll just use a regular buttercream (that I know how to make) and will save this for when I make the cookies with my kids. 🙂 The cookies and frosting tasted good, even if my frosting looked imperfect!

I am new to baking. I don’t have a tea towel, and don’t really know what one is. Will parchment paper work okay?

Check out naturalcandystore.com for tons of dye-free holiday options (and cotton candy!!!) and diefooddye.com for tips on navigating dye-free holidays!
My daughter is happy to hand over the “fake candy” because she knows I have “safe” stuff always on-hand! I packed a bento box full of dye-free candies for a cookie decorating party at school, and not only was she thrilled, but SHE got a few jealous looks from the other kids!

okay, looks like I don’t have a rollilng pin either. can these be smoothed down with another parchment paper, or am I out of luck?

Do you know of good resources for families that want to learn more about the possible link between behavior and food additives? I met with a family this week for nutrition counseling and the young boy had huge behavior issues and a very poor diet. Cutting out artificial dyes would be a huge hurdle for them but if I had some resources to back it up, they might at least consider it. (I’m an RD)

The Feingold diet is what we used to eliminate food additives. It is
http://www.feingold.org. My oldest daughter had hyperactivity issues in kindergarten and 1st grade. We removed food coloring and it improved drastically. Then in 3rd grade she wasn’t having as much issues with hyperactivity anymore, so I let her have some food coloring at birthday parties or special occasions. Every night after ingesting it she would vomit. Ever since I removed it again from her diet, she has not vomited once. I am definitely looking into doing the natural food additives this holiday.

You can grate beets and carrots using the small holes on a box grater and then squeeze out the juice by wringing out the pulp in a square of cheesecloth. I make natural dyes all the time for my daughter who is allergic to food dyes and I find this is a quick way to make a small quantity. Blueberries makes a nice light purple colour (just squeeze the juice from a few berries using cheesecloth again) and if you put a little baking soda into the juice, it will turn it blue although that colour is not stable for long (it will turn blue/grey after a few hours). Saffron makes a beautiful sunny yellow (put a few threads in hot water and let it sit). We discovered my daughter’s allergy to dyes when we fed her organic marble cheddar for the first time vs. the usual organic white cheddar. Surprisingly, farmed salmon is also another one to watch out for as that can contain hidden food dyes – they feed the fish dyed food to give the flesh a bright orange colour and my daughter has reacted to farmed salmon as well.

You could try Garbanzo Bean flour, it’s not gritty. Bob’s Red Mill makes it, but you can make your own by just grinding up dried Garbanzo Beans. I’ve used it to make hummus that’s not gritty.

How long would you say it took for your niece’s behavior to turn around once eliminating dyes? My 4.5 year old daughter is also very smart, reads really well but I cannot keep her bottom in her chair for home-school. Would be interesting to try this theory…

Our 5 year old son has had some problems in school and is very energetic. We started changing his diet(high protein, almond/coconut milk, no dyes, no GMOs, no BHT, etc) and have seen a definite change. We can definitely tell when he has had something he shouldn’t have. I am going to be making these for sure!!! Thank you…love finding fun healthy recipes for my boys.

Great recipe 🙂 Can’t wait to give the cookies a try!
I will say, I have been using India Tree and Maggie’s Naturals for years (mainly because I’m lazy…lol) and I’ve had really great luck getting the colors to blend etc.. I think they make beautiful colors.

I had a similar experience with my Maddy. She had awful nightmares when we first moved here from the UK and it could only be the artificial colours she had on the birthday cake she ate as the rest of her diet was organic. Thank you for the idea, I had looked into the bottled dyes but was reluctant to pay big bucks got something I could reproduce with better results at home. Thank you for sharing.

Have you had any luck trying a recipe without the processed sugars which is equally as damaging as the dyes. I love these ideas, but wonder if they would still work with less sugar and natural sugars? Has anyone tried? Thank you!

Our granddaughter was tested at Michigan State University for the food dye “allergy” and the doctor told my daughter that it isn’t really an allergy. It’s a POISON TOXICITY reaction. That’s right. Poison. He said if you look at a puddle with oil in it you see a lovely rainbow. That is where food dyes come from… coal tar derivatives. We got our “ah-ha” moment when she climbed up in my lap at the end of her 4th birthday party and said, “Gramma, sometimes I just want to take my skin off!”

Hi there, re food colourings; my daughter was literally climbing the walls at bedtime, it was like she had drank 10 strong coffees! I suspected it was artificial colors because of what I’d heard about them and we were visiting my parents at the time and my father kept feeding her these incredibly bright, very cheap looking lollies! So I took her to my homeopath and he confirmed my suspicions and we began a color free diet. She can now have the odd food with colour and her behavior doesn’t seem to change. I try to keep the colors away though anyway for all my children so if the odd thing slips in its no biggie.

Thank you for the fantastic Ideas…will try the natural beet and spinach colours also the carrot suggestions. Good to know about the farmed Salmon even though no allergies, we sure don’t need all the artificial gunk.

I just love your site. I have made several recipes and my kids love them. How do you know to use the beans? Also I am trying to make my children’s diets better and am always wanting to swap ingredients but never know what to swap it for. Where did you learn how to do all that you go. Thank you and again your site is the best change my life.

We avoid artificial colouring and flavouring like the plague. My son has ADHD, and when he does get any of the artificial stuff his behaviour goes off the scale. We noticed that certain junk is worse than others: Skittles are seriously banned in our house. Those things are scary! I am looking forward to trying this recipe. I know when I’ve needed colours for icing, mashing frozen raspberries or strawberries for pink, and blueberries for mauve has worked really well for colour and flavour. We don’t have a juicer, so it’s whatever I can mash or puree!

My boys would sleep walk and have night terrors, as well as wet the bed, when they had food dye. Another one of my kids has correlated food dye to her problems sleeping. We just avoid it in general on the premise that, even if you don’t notice it’s effects, it still isn’t good for you. As for coloring things, the very best red coloring I’ve gotten came from raspberry juice. I bought frozen berries, thawed them (you could even just put a cup full in the microwave or something), and drained out the juice. Really nice color. There is a little flavor, but not too bad, and it’s raspberry – YUM! I have done spinach to get green and it worked really well, but it also flavored the frosting a little . Blueberry juice will give you a nice bluish/purple too. I haven’t tried anything else but I think there are other powders for yellows and oranges that are supposed to work well. Some companies are finally switching over to using carmine for red and that’s a natural dye made from beetle shells. Oh, and here’s a little trivia tidbit for you. In other countries, they don’t use artificial dyes. Once, we got a box of strawberry Pop Tarts from the food bank that was packaged to be sold in Australia. My kids were in heaven because, guess what? NO food dye!! If they can make it for other countries, they could make it for us too! We need to be more proactive and hold companies accountable. So glad your niece figured out what worked for her. :o)

When my oldest was 8, she started getting random aggressive and irrational behaviour. It wasn’t until I witnessed her ingest an Italian Ice right after some skittles that I realized it was a huge issue. We are a very low-sugar family, and rarely eat candy, but it was one of those extended family days where it was abundant. It was scary to watch my 8 year old out of control, and she cried because of her own behaviour and inability to control it.
We cut all dyes out of our diet for all five of my children. My children also ask now “Does it have dye in it?” We have learned to make our own dyes and we find much joy in it! The India dyes are great, as are beets, tumeric, spinach, even blueberries and raspberries (I usually grind up the freeze-dried version, so the color tends to be speckled but beautiful).

Can’t wait to try these! Wanted to add that a pinch or two of tumeric makes a beautiful yellow without changing the icing taste – especially if it’s older tumeric. We’re fans of pomegranate pink since it’s such a tasty icing. Another green icing we make is blending an avocado (instead of butter ) with “powdered sugar” and some mint extract – though I imagine there must be a way to use actual mint leaves. We’re also a sugar free family that regularly subs 60/40% powdered stevia and powdered xylitol for sugar. Neither taste great on their own, but mixed is an excellent sugar knock off in baking. (We run Bulk Barn’s granular xylitol through a coffee grinder so it’s like icing or confectioner’s sugar.) For icing though, we just stick to powdered xylitol, as powdered stevia has a strange texture. If icings are too runny, we add a bit of non GMO corn starch at a time while mixing and it helps improve the texture. Very occasionally I’ve added a pinch of xanthan or guar gum to help thicken as well.

My mother taught me as a young girl to use natural products to make eater egg dye. For those who want blue for your Christmas cookie dye use red cabbage;)

In the Kids Activity blog where they have listed 75 cookies to make, your bean cookie is listed under gluten free. I couldn’t find a comment page on that web page but I hope people will not think that these cookies are gluten free as your ingredients list flour in it. I am intrigued tho and will try to make this at our company cookie exchange day. Thanks for sharing your recipe! will let you know the outcome of it.

Can you use white kidney beans? What is the difference between what you used?
I plan on making these this weekend!

Cheryl- I’ve never refrigerated them, but I’ve also never refrigerated the brownies! We don’t keep them very long though, maybe just 1-3 days. If you keep them longer than that, it would be smart to refrigerate!

I can’t wait to try this recipe. I can completely relate to your niece’s food dye story. From the age of birth to 3, my son’s behavior was exceptional. He was sweet, loving, extremely intelligent, and acted more like a 40 year old than a baby/toddler. Suddenly, he wasn’t acting so sweet anymore. He had daily tantrums, his foot would tap all of the time, he became agitated easily, and he wasn’t acting like the sweet boy I once knew. This lasted until I eliminated food dye from his diet seven months ago. For three years, he consumed food dyes and his behavior was terrible. (He was not introduced to dyes until he was 3.) His behavior took a 180 degree turn seven months ago. He can concentrate again, and I notice a huge change with his friend choices. Loved relating and reading your article.

My daughter reacts to pink and red food colouring. Her reactions have gotten progressively worse each time she ingests it. It is in common antibiotics and kids medicines too so very difficult when she needs AB’s! She puffs up and goes bright red, and gets terrible stomach pains. It’s awful! The other night she ate a green jellybean at the school concert a friend gave her and for the rest of the night complained her tongue and cheeks were swollen, so we need to keep an eye now on what she eats. I actually can’t believe these dyes are allowed to be in food etc!

Thank you for sharing this we just stated the Feingold Diet, which is a dye free diet, mainly for my 5 year old who has been diagnosed with ADHD since he was 3. We have been told by several doctors and child psych that the only way to help his behavior was drug therapy. So about 4 weeks into a dye free diet I have a new child. His teachers, friends and family are amazed. My only issue has been the holiday party’s poor thing can’t enjoy it. I am so new to it I am having trouble finding substitutes thank you for giving me this so we can keep our traditional xmass cookies. I can’t wait to try these.

When my son was three, he was out of control with his emotions, always throwing tantrums and screaming and crying. I couldn’t even make it five minutes in a grocery store before he had a meltdown. I had read about the possibility of artificial food dyes altering behavior so I began eliminating them from his diet. Within two days, he was like a different person! His diet has been free of artificial dyes for about eight months now & I can’t imagine ever going back. I used blueberries to make a purple frosting for his birthday cake & I’ll definitely try the beets & spinach for next Christmas. Also, thank goodness for Trader Joes & their naturally dyed gummies & jelly beans!

@Robyn…my daughter is the same way! She can tolerate in very small doses..but she comes from her dad’s a different person because they do not eat the same as she and I do at our home despite having the means to do so. I have studied the effects of dyes and sugar and artificial nonsense with her and it is unbelievable.

I just wanted to let you know that I tried these as a tester. To compare a couple of weeks later I made a whole wheat flour instead of white beans out of curiosity. We had to use canned white beans (drained) but short of that taste, the texture of the white beans was FANTASTIC!!! I was sorely disappointed when I use the wheat flour instead because it was so crumbly. We will be sticking to white bean dough from this point on! Thank you for your blog. It is wonderful for parents like myself!

I made these yesterday, and they are amazing. The dough is extremely soft and pliable, no cracking whatsoever. They are so delicious. I made the bean based frosting, and it was great. Thanks for the tips about using other veggies and fruits for natural dyes. We don’t have allergies here, but I’m all for making our food better and healthier by substituting ingredients.

Oh my goodness, I know this is an old article, but THANK YOU for reposting it on FB. I’m pretty much a scratch cook, and suspected a while ago my daughter had behavior problems related to food dye. We did well at Easter and I got her candy from Whole Foods, but this summer we moved across the country and I’ve totally forgotten. Well, long story short we’ve had that stupid Halloween candy around and she gets one piece a day, but ALWAYS goes for sour patch kids or starbursts, junky junk. Her behavior at home has been atrocious, and this article was my ah ha moment. Even though I knew this about her, all of our transition has left me with a blank on why she’s so contentious. Thank you again for the reminder!

Thank you! I always thought that pomegranate would make a beautiful colour for icing too! I will be using the spinach this year for sure!

Thank you for sharing your experiment! I was hesitant to purchase the natural food colorings because of the cost. I will stick to homemade. Thanks.

This is one of our favorite holiday recipes. It seems that the “white beans” have been removed from the recipe and instructions. I had to look up an archived page to get the correct ratio.
