This classic sugar cookie recipe is perfect to roll out and decorate, and it's chewy and sweet.
Serves: 4 dozen
  • ¾ cup softened butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2½ cups all purpose flour
  1. Beat together the butter, granulated sugar, baking powder and salt. Add in the eggs and vanilla and mix until smooth. (I mix all of my baking by hand, but this also works well with a mixer.)
  2. Mix in 2½ cups of flour. Refrigerate the dough for at least an hour.
  3. Roll the dough out to about ¼″ thickness & cut into desired shapes with cookie cutters.
  4. Bake each batch of cookies for about 7 minutes at 350 degrees F until they are just slightly golden on the edges.
  5. Cool & decorate as desired.
