Soft Sugar Cookie


I Love These Sugar Cookies!

These are the easiest and best tasting cut out sugar cookie I have had. Everyone I make them for agrees! Best part is that you don't have to chill the dough. 


Ingredients: 

  • 1 cup softened butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups all purpose flour


Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 350℉
  2. Use a mixer to cream together the butter and sugar until smooth, at least 3 minutes. 
  3. Beat in eggs and extract. 
  4. In a separate bowl mix baking powder, salt, and flour. Slowly add to the wet ingredients. When the dough becomes to stiff for your mixer, pull it out and finish kneading the dough by hand. 
  5. Do not chill the dough. On a lightly floured surface roll out the dough until about 1/4 inch thick. Cut out your cookies.
  6. Bake at 350℉ for 6-8 minutes. Let cool until firm enough to move to a cooling rack. 
Tips:
  • If you have to chill the dough just set it out to warm up before rolling it out. 
  • Exchange 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract for 1/2 teaspoon of almond extract for a sweeter cookie. 
  • Start out with 6 minutes of cooking time, add more time as needed. They should be only lightly browned on the bottom for a softer cookie.
