I love making sugar cookies and giving as gifts for every holiday. It’s such an easy way to make every occasion a little more personal and from the heart. I have a recipe I have been using for years, which I have included for you. I usually find a container to display the cookies in and add other special treats to go along with the edibles. Wrap the cookies individually in plastic treat bags.  I like to adorn ornaments, ribbons, and tags to finish off the present.

DELICIOUS!

How to Make Sugar Cookies

Preheat Oven to 375 degrees F.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 extra large egg (I always use extra large eggs when baking)
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

Directions

  1. In a bowl, combine flour and baking powder. Set aside.
  2. Using an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, on medium speed, beat the butter and sugar for approximately 3 minutes. Beat in the egg and vanilla until combined.
  3. With the mixer on low speed, begin adding flour mixture a little at a time. Scrape the bowl often. Once the flour has been added the dough should form a ball around the attachment and feel soft but not sticky.
  4. Wrap the dough in plastic and press down flat to form a disc. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. You can store in refrigerator for up to a week, wrapped tightly.
  5. Roll out the dough on a lightly floured work surface to about 1/4 inch thickness. Pick all your favorite cookie cutters to desired shapes.
  6. Carefully transfer cut-outs with a spatula to a parchment lined cookie sheet. I place the tray of cut-out cookies in the refrigerator for 10 minutes.
  7. Bake sheet pan in the middle of the oven for 7-9 minutes or until puffy. Watch the cookies closely as you don’t want the edges to get brown.
  8. Cool cookies on pan for at least 2 minutes and transfer to a wire rack to continue cooling.
  9. Decorate cookies with buttercream frosting. (I will have this recipe for you tomorrow).

DELICIOUS!
