Easy Sugar Cookies Recipe (rolled version) ~Homemade~
Serves: 2 dozen
  • 1½ cups + 2 Tablespoons all-purpose flour ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon of salt
  • ½ cup real butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • Powdered sugar or flour (for rolling)
  1. In a bowl add flour, salt, baking soda & baking powder. Whisk until well combined. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl cream together butter, sugar, vanilla & egg. Mix until creamy.
  3. Gradually add flour mixture into sugar mixture. Use a spoon or rubber spatula to mix together. The mixture will be crumbly.
  4. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours.
  5. Preheat oven to 400 degrees & line some cookie sheets with parchment paper or foil.
  6. Remove bowl from the refrigerator. Sprinkle powdered sugar on the table or cutting board.
  7. Gather dough into a ball. The dough will be hard &
  8. crumbly but the more you work with it, the heat from your hands will help it warm up fast. I kneaded it on the table and it took about 2 minutes before it was soft and ready for
  9. rolling.
  10. Sprinkle powdered sugar on the rolling pin and roll the dough to about ¼ inch thick.
  11. Place your cookie cutters into the dough to cut out the shape. I always wiggle the cookie cutters around once I've put them into the dough just to kinda separate the shape from the dough.
  12. Use a spatula to carefully lift the cookies and place them 2 inches apart on the prepared cookie sheets. The dough scraps can be re-rolled to make more cookies.
  13. Bake for 4-6 minutes until lightly browned on the edges.
  14. Remove cookies from oven & let them sit in the pan for 5 minutes. Cookies will not look done when you take them out of the oven but will firm up as they cool. When cookies have firmed, place them on cooling racks to finish cooling.
