My fiancé Drew is a huge fan of the classic sugar cookie, and after this long week of work I decided to take the 20 minutes while he was at the grocery store to whip of a batch of these no fail, no chill sugar cookies!
I don't make sugar cookies that often because I use to think they took to long to make with the chilling process. These are no fail and no chill which is a win win in my book when it comes to sugar cookies! Besides being a 20 minute process to make the dough, roll the dough and bake the cookies, they turned out soft and chewy like he likes them!
I added frosting to a few of them for a cuter look, but they are delicious either plain or frosted!
Let's get to baking!
Sugar Cookies: Preheat the oven to 350 ° fehrenheit
In a mixing bowl, cream the soft butter with the sugar
Add in the baking soda, baking powder, and vanilla extract
Next add in the egg
Lastly, combine the dough with the flour 1/2 cup a time
On a clean flat surface, spread flour out evenly and place your dough onto the flour
Coat your rolling pin in the flour and roll out the dough until the dough is about 1/4 inch thick
Using cookie cutters of your choice *I used a star and a squirrel* cut the cookies until there is no more room on the sheet
Transfer the cookies to a non greased baking sheet and cook for 6-8 minutes until soft with light brown edges
- 2 sticks of soft room temperature butter
- 1 1/2 cups of granulated sugar
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 baking powder
- 2 3/4 cups of all purpose unbleached flour
*more for rolling cookies
- 1 large egg
- 1/2 cup of confectioners sugar
- 1 tablespoon of milk
Continue to ball the dough, roll the dough and cut cookies until the dough is used up and all the cookies are done baking!
Combing the powdered sugar and the milk in a small bowl with a fork and drizzle over the cookies! Add sprinkles if you are feeling festive!
And enjoy! Make sure to tag me in your posts and comments if you recreate a recipe of mine!
