The Perfect Sugar Cookies
Sugar cookies are sweet, simple and perfect for holiday baking. In under 15 minutes of prep time, you will have a dough that you can rely on for all that holiday baking you have to do.
– unsalted butter
– vanilla extract
– baking powder
– all-purpose flour
Prepare all ingredients. Be sure to use butter that is softened in a room temperature. In a small pan, combine the flour and baking powder.
Beat together butter with sugar, until the mixture is smooth. To the mixture, add in the egg and vanilla extract. Whip everything together until it's well combined.
Stir the flour mixture into the butter mixture, adding it in small parts. The dough will be a bit crumbly, but that is OK.
Divide the dough into small parts and roll it out into a 1/4 inch thickness. Use cookie cutters to cut out your favorite shapes.
Bake cookies at 350°F on a lined baking sheet for about 8 minutes. Cookie time depends on the size of the cookies.
