Sugar Cookies

Sugar cookies are the rage around any holiday, especially shaped cookies that can be decorated with icing and sprinkles. Thus, here is a very basic sugar cookie recipe that gives you the creative license to adorn as you wish. I opted for the simple circular quintessential cookie, but they’re yummy no matter how you choose to garnish them!

Sugar Cookies


-2 3/4 cups flour

-1 tsp. baking soda

-1/2 tsp. baking powder

-1 cup butter, at room temperature

-1 1/2 cups sugar

-1 egg, at room temperature

-1 tsp. vanilla extract


1. Preheat oven to 375ºF and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

2. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and baking powder. Set aside.

3. In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together butter and sugar until smooth, approximately 3 minutes. On low speed, add egg and vanilla. 

4. Add dry ingredients and mix just until all ingredients are incorporated.
