Bake sales are wonderful fundraisers for causes close to our hearts, and these melt-in-your-mouth ribbon-shaped Pink Ribbon sugar cookies were created especially with Breast Cancer Awareness events in mind. Even if you aren't having a bake sale, these are great for sharing.

How to Make COOKIES FOR A CAUSE

Step-by-Step

  • 1In a large bowl, with an electric mixer on medium speed, cream butter and sugar.

    Add eggs and vanilla; beat 1 to 2 minutes, or until light and fluffy.

    Gradually add flour and beat 2 minutes, or until well blended.

    Form dough into 2 balls; cover and chill at least 2 hours.

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

    On a lightly floured work surface, using a rolling pin, roll 1 ball of dough to 1/4-inch thickness.

    Using a ribbon cookie cutter, cut shapes out of dough.

    Place cookies 1 inch apart on ungreased baking sheets.

    Repeat with remaining dough.

    Bake 10 to 12 minutes, or until cookies are golden around the edges.

    Remove to a wire rack to cool completely.

    Frost cooled cookies with your favorite frosting and decorate as desired.
