My friend Jamey emailed me the other day about Blue Chip Cookies, asking if I had them when we lived in KC. Of course I did! The irresistible melt-in-your-mouth sugar cookies are slathered with icing, and were all too convenient to some of my favorite lunch spots! I had to try to forget they were there every time I went shopping.

Jamey’s not-so-subtle reminder had me wondering why I had never attempted to recreate them before. Unfortunately, I couldn’t taste test these side by side, but after 3 attempts, I achieved melt in your mouth sugar cookies. Are you ready for this?

These Sugar Cookies Are Perfect For Christmas

For me, it really isn’t Christmas until I have a sugar cookie! They are a classic sweet treat over the festive period and I always have a batch on hand to feed to friends and family. To make these cookies really fun and festive, once I have frosted them, I like to pop some sprinkles on top for a pop of color.
