Not everyone can be a brilliant baker, and that’s fine. While you might see friends crafting beautiful confections, it’s just not in you. That doesn’t mean you can’t make something delicious, though.

You can make sugar cookies with only three ingredients, and they’re easy to bake, too!

To create these cookies, you’ll need unsalted butter, flour, and sugar. That’s it (but we recommend throwing in a few colorful sprinkles, too). As for the baking process, you’ll first need to pre-heat your oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. As it’s heating, cream the butter and sugar together until fluffy.

Next, add all of the flour to the butter and sugar mixture. You’ll likely need to finish mixing with your hands to ensure everything is properly mixed. Once finished, roll pieces of the dough into balls and flatten them slightly in your hands. Dip one side in sprinkles and place them on a greased or parchment-lined cookie sheet. Bake for 14 minutes, and you’ve got the easiest cookies ever.

You can find the full recipe on Taste of Home. But if you’re still dubious about your baking abilities and just don’t trust yourself with an oven, don’t worry. There are plenty of easy, no-bake cookies you can try as well.
