Sugar Cookies

Cookies along with pies and pudding are my downfall. Versus be honest, I prefer soft sugar cookies that are either gooey or filled with surprises to crunchy cookies.

Sugar Cookies Recipe Easy

I may never bake regular sugar cookies again since I’m in love with this simple sugar cookie recipe. In fact, they’ve been my go-to for the past few years. They’re easier to make than shortbread and taste similar to crispy sugar biscuits.

All you need is unsalted butter, granulated sugar, and flour. (A touch of vanilla in the dough and sprinkles on top make them even tastier, but they’re not essential for this sugar cookie recipe.)

The ease with which these cookies are made is nearly criminal, yet no one will go to jail! HA. There are only four simple steps to follow. Here’s a basic overview: (Scroll down for a printable version of the detailed recipe.)

  • Cream the butter, sugar, and flour together until smooth to produce the dough.
  • To make the cookies, roll the dough into 1-inch balls. In a glass or measuring cup, roll the sugar balls and flatten them.
  • Bake until the bottom and sides are lightly browned.
  • Rest for at least 10-15 minutes before eating to allow for relaxation and cooling.

That’s everything. No rolling, splitting, cooling, or waiting is required for Easy Sugar Cookie Recipe

Some Extra Tips To Make It Yummy

  • Use a cookie scoop: For ease and consistency, use a small cookie scoop to guarantee that all cookies cook at the same time.
  • It’s crucial to consider the thickness: The uncooked dough balls should be between 1/8 and 1/4 inch thick when flattened, or 3/16 inch to be precise. (They’ll appear small at first, but they’ll spread to the size of a regular cookie.)
  • Allow space between them: Because cookie dough spreads when baked, it should be placed on a cookie sheet at least 2 inches apart.
  • Because these cookies are delicate at first, let them on the cookie sheet for at least 10-15 minutes before moving them to cool completely. They are, nevertheless, powerful once cold.

Is it possible to make cut-out cookies with this recipe?

Unfortunately, no. The dough does not bond firmly enough without eggs in the recipe, and the cookies may break when cut using a cookie cutter.

Is freezing these possible?

Yes, you can use royal icing to decorate them or drizzle them with basic icing. Combine powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla extract in a mixing bowl and whisk until smooth. Set away after drizzling.

What are the calories in a sugar cookie?

There are only 90 calories in these sugar biscuits. With a cup of coffee, it’s perfect.

How long can sugar cookies be stored?

If properly stored, they can be kept on the counter for up to 5 days.

Is it possible to freeze sugar cookies?

If you want to freeze them, roll the dough into balls and place them in the freezer. Refrigerate overnight before rolling in sugar and baking according to package guidelines. You can keep the dough in the freezer for up to two months.

Possible Variations

  • Chocolate chips can be sprinkled on top of the cookies.
  • Sprinkle with multicolored sugar sprinkles before baking.
  • To enhance the flavor, add 1/2 teaspoon almond essence.
  • Try them with chopped nuts if you prefer. Both pecans and walnuts are excellent substitutes.
  • Reduce the sugar by 1/4 cup if you want them to be less sweet; however, cutting the sugar any further can affect the texture and spread of the cookies.
