A package and a Sugar Cookie recipe from home.

…what more can I ask for?



I don’t know if I have mentioned this before but I am horrible at making cookies. My cookies may taste good.. .but in the looks department they fall short. I like easy breezy cookie recipes anyway because my kids eat them before they even make it into a cookie jar. Plus I am very lazy when it comes to making them. I just can’t understand the amount of work that goes into making one. Yes… this is me typing this.. the girl who spends 12 hours or more decorating a cake.

I have been on the quest for a Bermuda Sugar cookie recipe. I have received and tried three. This one is by far the easiest and is very tasty.

Now my problem with Bermuda Sugar cookies is that I am not making them in Bermuda. That is causing me not to be satisfied. So when my Aunt gave me her recipe and I tried it.. it tasted like hers but the texture was way off! And when I tried the one I found on the web, they tasted phenomenal…yet again.. the texture was not there. I also did this recipe that was brought to me from an Angel. And…her name really is Angel. This is the recipe I am about to share.. and they tasted really, really, really good… 


…a lovely visitor from home brought me goodies. Goodies in a Bermuda grocery store bag. I used to work at this company for a few years part time. Ahhh.. the memories.

Alas… in the bag…


I haven’t seen Kerrygold Irish butter in years! And Robin Hood flour! Score!!  My Angel says that it is the butter that is making the difference in the cookies. The Kerrygold website says it is sold at Publix and Whole Foods.. well, while on the hunt I also found it at Trader Joes.  I also feel that the flour makes a huge difference too. Robin Hood flour is my favorite for making cookies!

I was still a little skeptical because I still think that the altitude can effect these cookies as well… but I was willing to give it a go.

Here is the easy breezy recipe from an Angel.

Bermuda Sugar Cookies


2 cups Powdered Sugar
4 cups all purpose flour
1 pound of  butter
1tbsp vanilla extract
1 tsp cinnamon

Bake on 350 until golden brown.

I criss crossed the cookies with a fork after placing them on the cookie sheet which I lined with parchment paper. I also sprinkled some granulated sugar on some of them and amused the kids by sprinkling some colorful non pareils on others.


That’s it folks. I promise you. It’s that easy. Within minutes.. my family was gobbling them up.



I will say that I am very happy with the outcome of these, texture and all. I plan on getting more of this butter and trying the other 2 recipes that I have and posting them on the blog as comparison.  But for the moment.. .I must end this post as there is one more cookie left on the cooling rack and I must go claim it as mine!
