Sugar Cookies Recipe

One of my favorite cookies has always been a simple sugar cookie – nothing fancy added, just a slightly sweet and tasty cookie, easy to make. (And they freeze well also.)

Sugar Cookies



  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 1 cup butter (2 sticks), softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 Tbsp pure vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt

Preheat oven to 350°, line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
Using a stand mixer beat sugar and butter until fluffy. Add in eggs and vanilla, mixing till smooth and blended. Add in flour, baking powder and salt. Beat till a cookie dough forms.
Dish up balls of dough, flatten a tiny bit and put 12 on each sheet. Bake for 10-16 minutes (depends on oven and how thick your cookies are).

Makes about 5 dozen.
