Easy Sugar Cookies From Scratch
My sister-in-law made this easy sugar cookie recipe at my house a couple years ago and I have been making them often ever since. They use only simple ingredients that you typically have in your pantry. And the best part is that they don’t require any patience while chilling in the refrigerator.
The dough comes together in just a few minutes, and I love that it doesn’t require any weird ingredients. In fact, the only ingredient that I didn’t have on-hand at the time was butter flavoring. (Now I keep it stocked in my pantry JUST for this recipe!). Plus, they turn out soft, fluffy and super delicious every time! Is there anything better than that?
How to Make Sugar Cookies
These sugar cookies are super easy and I’m going to show you how to make them in just 10 minutes.
Prep – Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees F. You’ll also want to line your cookie sheet with either parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
Mix – Throw all of the ingredients into a large bowl and mix everything until the ingredients are fully blended together.
Roll – Roll the dough into 1 inch balls. Place them on your cookie sheet with enough space in between each one so they can spread out while cooking.
Cook – Bake the sugar cookies in the oven for 7 minutes. Pull them out and let them cool and finish baking on the baking sheet. They should stay tall and fluffy!
Decorate – Allow your cookies to completely cool before bedazzling them. I love to top mine with a Cream Cheese Frosting but any frosting will be delicious.
Don’t Over Bake – After 7 minutes DON’T leave the sugar cookies in the oven even if they look like they need to bake longer. They’ll go from perfect to ruined in just about a minute.
Butter Flavoring – You can find it with the baking supplies at your grocery store. It comes in a bottle that looks similar to vanilla extract. Here is a link to the Butter Flavoring we used so you can see what it looks like.
