Sugar Cookie Recipe:

This recipe is perfect for making delicious sugar cookies! The dough rolls out easily every time and the cookies turn out nice and sturdy. Ingredients:

  • 2 cups salted butter, softened
  • 2 cups granulated white sugar
  • 6 cups all purpose flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 large eggs 
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract  Directions: 

1. In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to cream the butter and sugar until fluffy. Add the eggs and vanilla extract. Mix well. In a separate bowl, whisk the flour and baking powder together. Add dry ingredients, a little at a time, to the butter mixture. Mix well, at a low speed, until fully blended.

2. Cover and chill for 1 - 2 hours. 

3. Roll your dough out to desired thickness. (1/4" thick is recommended)

4. Bake at 350 degrees for 8 - 10 minutes, or until just beginning to brown around the edges. 

Let your cookies cool completely on wire racks before decorating! 

This sugar cookie recipe yields 5 dozen (3 inch round) cookies.


  • Room temperature eggs mix better in a recipe and produce fluffier cookies. Let your eggs sit out for 30 minutes to an hour prior to baking. (Don't leave them out for longer than two hours)
  • Line your baking sheets with silicone baking mats or parchment paper. This will keep your cookies from burning and make clean-up much easier!
  • If you only have unsalted butter, you can add in a teaspoon of salt. 
  • Splurge for the good vanilla! (you're welcome)
  • Add a touch of almond extract for some extra flavor.
  • Thicker cookie = longer baking time
  • You can freeze extra cookie dough ( stays fresh for up to 3 months).
