Cookie Monster's Famous Sugar Cookie Dough Recipe

If there's someone who knows their cookies, it's this furry blue monster. That's why we were thrilled to have Cookie Monster's Famous Sugar Cookie Dough recipe in our All-Star Cookie Swap. You'll definitely want to add this to your baking list this holiday season.

But, like most people around the holidays, Cookie Monster tries to balance his cookie consumption with more healthful options. After all, “a cookie is a sometime food.”

You and your family can learn all about sometime and anytime foods with Sesame Street’s Healthy Habits for Life, a great resource for staying healthy during the holiday sugar rush and all year long. So go ahead and have a cookie -- but not the whole holiday cookie tray.
