Easy sugar cookies recipe

I love a great recipe. I think that  an Easy sugar cookie recipe is just what we need to make our holiday count. We make sugar cookies every year because it is our way to pay it forward and bring joy to others. We love to make people cookies. The reason is simple you make a memory for yourself and your family and you can also help someone else. I honestly enjoy giving these away as much as I like eating them. They make your house smell awesome as well. I can’t address how wonderful it is to do something simple with your family no matter how old or young you are cooking is a great way to create more than a great recipe.

The directions are:


In a large bowl combine the following items butter and sugar. You will need to mix them until they are smooth. Then beat in the eggs and vanilla. Stir in the flour, baking powder, and salt make sure they are mixed completely. Then cover the dough in a bowl and leave it in the refrigerator and let it chill for one hour. We do ours the day before.


When ready place dough on a floured surface and roll out to ¼ or ½ inch thick. Then you can cut the dough into your favorite shape.

Note: using parchment paper will make clean up easier. You can cook the cookies directly on it.

When you are ready place them in a 400 degree oven on an un greased cookie sheet for 6-8 minutes or until the edges of the cookies are golden brown.

  5. Decorating sugar cookies is a tradition I’ve made with my kids ever year on Christmas Eve. We have so much fun and it’s great to see what they come up with. It’s fun to look at pictures and see how they’re “style” has changed over the years. They are 11 & 17 now so there are lots of pictures! 🙂 Most years I skimped and just doctored up a store bought sugar cookie mix, but this recipe looks so simple I think we’ll try it this year!

    I love sugar cookies but unfortunately I can’t eat anything with eggs in it. It’s amazing how many things have eggs in it that you don’t even realize. I have learned to search for recipes for baked goods without eggs…not always easy and not always tasty. Thanks for the great review.
