Cookie Monster's Famous Sugar Cookies~Nom Nom Nom!

From Big Bird's Busy Book, circa the 1970s, here is Cookie Monster's famous Sugar Cookie recipe! 

 Cookie Monster's Famous Sugar Cookies
Put 3/4 cup of butter or margarine (that's a stick and a half) into your mixing bowl. Measure 1 cup of sugar. Pour sugar over butter. With fork, squash butter and sugar together until they are blended. Crack shells of two eggs and pour eggs over mixture in bowl. Measure 1 teaspoon vanilla and pour over mixture. With fork, blend everything in the bowl together. Measure 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour and pour over mixture in bowl. Measure 1 teaspoon baking powder and sprinkle over flour. Measure 1 teaspoon of salt and sprinkle over flour and baking powder. Mix everything together either with the fork or with your hands. Put dough in icebox to chill (at least one hour) then roll out the cookie 1/4 inch thick and bake at 400 degrees. 

Cookie makes Apple Raisin Oatmeal Cookies in this old Sesame Street episode... well, almost!


  1. When my grandson was about 3 years old, he woke up screaming because of a bad dream. When his mother got to him, he told her he was crying because Cookie Monster ate off his fingers. My daughter showed him his fingers, he looked so surprised that they were still there. His dream was so real. Just thought I'd share a funny story for today!!

    1. Oh my! What a scary dream... those cute furry monsters sometimes creep into their dreams! The ones our grands watch now ARE scary!

  2. Always love any cookie recipes! Richard

    1. Found this one on Facebook the other day and it sounds like a really good sugar cookie recipe. I know the way the perfect sugar cookie tastes... tender, crispy and sweet!
