Traditional Sugar Cookies

Sugar-CookiesTraditional Sugar Cookies

I have two recipes for sugar cookies that I use. This one is the one I use for holidays, for rolling out and cutting into shapes and frosting with buttercream frosting or cookie icing. They are PERFECT because they are hardly sweet at all – a perfect compliment to the frosting.

INGREDIENTS:

1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 ¾ cup flour
¾ tsp Kosher or sea salt
½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda

SUPPLIES:

Measuring cups/spoons
mixing bowl/wooden spoon
plastic wrap
rolling pin
cookie cutters or sharp knife
cookie sheet

PREPARATION:

I grind up the salt to make it less course and so that it will dissolve more quickly.

DIRECTIONS:

Cream together butter, sugar, eggs, and vanilla.

Sift together the dry ingredients. Add to the creamed mixture.

Form into a ball and wrap tightly in plastic wrap. Refrigerate several hours.

Heat oven to 375° degrees F.

On a lightly floured surface, roll dough to ¼-½ inch thick. Cut with cookie cutter and place on ungreased baking sheet. (I use parchment paper on top of my baking sheet when when I bake cookies, but that is by no means required.)

Keep some space between each cookie, because they’re going to grow and spread out some.

At this point, you can sprinkle with colored sugar if you’re going to do that instead of frost them.

Bake 375° degrees F for 8-10 minutes, or until the edges just start to brown.

Let cool in pan for 2 minutes, then transfer to wire rack to continue cooling.

Decorate with frosting and candies or just eat plain and enjoy!

YIELD:

This depends on the size of your cookies. If you were going to just use a cookie scoop and make “normal” cookies, it would probably make 3 dozen.

NOTES:

Once these are baked, there are limitless possibilities. Before baking, you can stick a lollipop stick in them and make a cookie bouquet.

You can add food coloring to the dough as you’re making it and make colored cookies.

You can sprinkle with sugar before baking and serve as is.

You can frost with cookie icing or buttercream frosting.

This dough is just a base to do almost anything your imagination can allow.
