I have been working with Care.com for a couple of years doing senior and child care. During that time I have met people from all over the world. My most recent child care position introduced me to a mom from Switzerland. This week she had me try one of her holiday cookies. She got the recipe from her Austrian grandmother. They always called them 3,6,9 cookies to help them remember the recipe. They are so easy and so good.
Simple Sugar Cookie originally from Inge Retl
- 300 grams sugar,
- 600 grams butter, cold,
- 900 grams flour (all-purpose)
You just combine all with a mixer and then roll out and cut into desired shapes. Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes. Watch and don’t overcook. They should just be slightly browned around the edges. You can cook longer if you want a crunchier cookie. Cool and decorate or just sprinkle on powdered sugar.
