Holiday decorating is meant to be a fun, joyful experience—not a competitive sport. Set a relaxing, fun, and festive tone for decorating by playing Christmas music, lighting soothing candles, building a fire, preparing a cup of hot cocoa, and baking some pre-batched cookie dough. 

Here’s a must-try, fuss-free Christmas cookie recipe by Food Network that will undoubtedly spark joy:

Ingredients: 

  • 2 ¾ cups all-purpose flour 
  • 1 tsp baking soda 
  • ½ tsp baking powder 
  • 1 cup softened butter 
  • 1 ½ cups white sugar 
  • 1 egg 
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract 
  • 3-4 tbsp buttermilk 
  • Colored sprinkles 

Directions: 

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. In a small bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, and baking powder. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, mix the butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in the egg and vanilla. 
  4. Gradually blend in the dry ingredients. Add enough buttermilk to moisten the dough and make it soft (not wet). 
  5. Roll rounded teaspoons of dough into balls and place them on an ungreased cookie sheet. 
  6. With a brush or fingers, moisten the top of each cookie with remaining buttermilk and slightly flatten the top of each cookie. 
  7. Sprinkle with colored sprinkles. 
  8. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until slightly golden. Let stand for 2 minutes before removing to cool on a rack.
