Recipe: Sugar Cookies

Today we are going to make sugar cookies.  This is my go-to recipe whenever I want to make cut out cookies.  So yummy and easy to make! 

Skill Level: Easy
Items Needed:
Baking Sheet
Parchment Paper (if desired)
Cooling Rack
Plastic Bag/wrap
Rolling Pin
Cookie Cutter
and Ingredients (only 6)!

Average Time: 45-60 minutes

Get a Little Buddy to Help out

3/4 cup soft butter
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
1/4 tsp salt

Cream butter and sugar

Add vanilla and egg

Add flour and salt

Mix until you have a dough. Divide and flatten into discs.  Put the discs into the refrigerator for about 30 minutes.

Roll out the dough on a floured surface

Let little helper try it too!


Use fun shapes.  Since it's still fall, I used leaf cutters.  But this recipe is so easy to use for all season and holidays!

Score the "leaf" with a knife so that it looks even more realistic.
Bake in the oven at 325F for about 13-15 minutes.  Cool on a cookie rack and enjoy!

Make lots of different shapes for variety.

Put it in a nice tin and bring it to your next party!
