Although many people associate sugar cookies with Christmas, I actually connect them with Valentine’s Day first. Don’t get me wrong—I think they’re delicious cookies to enjoy all year round!—but Valentine’s Day is when Mom always bought them from the grocery store bakery for my brother and me.
Throughout our childhood, the type often varied. Sometimes she brought home the crunchy kind covered in coarse red sugar, or the Lofthouse-style thick and cakey ones with frosting and sprinkles, or the buttery and chewy type neatly decorated with festive royal icing.
Forever a chewy cookie lover, I favored the last ones above all and slowly savored every bite. As I grew older, the overly sugary icing became less appealing, and I mainly looked forward to the soft cookie underneath.
And those were the kind I had in mind when I developed this recipe for the Ultimate Healthy Sugar Cookies! They’re sweet, buttery, and chewy, just like my favorite ones from my childhood, but these are really easy to make and just 41 calories!
