Easy Sugar Cookies

It’s probably pretty clear by now that my favorite thing to bake is cookies; they’re always fairly easy, never too sweet, and the most simple snack to grab on the run or at the end of the night.  It could come to no surprise that for my non-traditional holiday desserts, cookies were a big part 🙂 One safe bet with cookies, aside from your classic chocolate chip, is a good old fashion Sugar Cookie.

You will need:

2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp baking powder

1 cup butter, softened

1 1/2 cups white sugar

1 egg

1 tsp vanilla extract


Preheat your oven to 375. In a small bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, and baking powder. Set aside.  In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in egg and vanilla. Gradually blend in the dry ingredients. This week I debuted my cookie sized spring loaded scoop, and I’m a big fan of how easy it made separating the cookies into perfect little scoops on the cookie sheet 🙂 Once on the sheet, sprinkle with sugar and/or sprinkles for a little extra sweetness. Bake 8 to 10 minutes, or until slightly golden. Let these cookies stand on your cookie sheet for two minutes before removing to cool on wire racks.

It really doesn’t get much more simple than that!  Quick and easy, and totally delicious.

    I remember when mom used to make these. They are awesome with milk.

    Show them how to make Pumpkin Bars!! Also, how about a low sugar protein cookie/brownie/muffin?!

  2. […] and basically fell in love and had to re-create them.  So cute and Dr. Seuss-y!  I used my Easy Sugar Cookie recipe for the dough, and from there, you’ll just need some food […]
