I remember a few years ago when we lived in Arizona and I was without a car, due to a car accident I was in.

I was craving these cookies something fierce, so I put my babies in my bike stroller, attached it to my bike and took off for Paradise Bakery that was 4 miles away.

I pulled up to the small bakery with a smile on my face. These cookies are completely worth all the extra calories I had to burn just to get there.

If you’ve ever rode a bike with two hefty toddlers behind you, it’s a workout.

So the other day I stumbled upon this recipe for the coveted Paradise Bakery sugar cookies. This lady found the recipe for the real deal cookies in the newspaper, so I decided to give it a whirl.

There are a few key things to keep in mind when baking these sugar cookies.

  • Use cake flour instead of all purpose flour.
  • Don’t over bake your cookies, they are supposed to be very pale in color.
  • Use extreme will power to not eat them all in one sitting.

Instructions

Use the palm of your hand to slightly flatten. Bake for 9 to 10 minutes, cookies will still be pale in color.

    Not a fan of Chai. If I wanted to make the original cookies (without the Chai spices), what would I change in your recipe.
    Thank you.

    1. You could, but it won’t give you the same results as I got. I would refrigerate your cookie dough for a few hours after it’s made before you bake the cookies.
