This cookies are absolutely delicious and with no chilling time necessary, they can be made quickly. This is now my favorite sugar cookie!

"I just made these with my 4 year old son. We had such a great time. This recipe is basic enough to where I could keep him involved the whole time. We used baking powder, not baking soda, since the original recipe called for it (but the instructions say soda).

I think the cookies are a wee on the dry side, but they're still good. We are going to make frosting next!"


1 cup Butter; room temperature
1 cup Sugar
1 teaspoon Vanilla
1 ea Egg
3 cups Flour; sifted
2 teaspoon Baking Powder

Original recipe makes 30



Preheat oven to 400. In a large mixer bowl, cream butter and sugar until well combined. Beat in vanilla and egg.

Sift flour and baking soda together. Add to creamed mixture, one cup at a time, mixing after each addition.

Dough will be very stiff.


Divide dough in half. On floured surface, roll dough about to 1/8 thick. Dip cutters in flour before each use. Bake cookies on ungreased cookie sheet on top rack of oven for 6-7 minutes, or until lightly browned.

Makes 2-3 dozen cookies.

I just made these cookies for my husband to do a cookie exchange at work and they turned out great. The dough is so nice to work with and rolls out perfectly. This is my new favorite sugar cookie recipe. They are tasty & so EASY to make.

This is a great recipe when you follow the directions exactly!! The cookies are delicious, they're crunchy there quick, hold the shape of the cookie cutters. I do have favorite recipes that you refrigerate the dough, but this one is by far the best one when you don't have time to chill it.

Started to make but confused. Recipe calls for 2 teaspoons baking powder, but directions call for baking soda. Which one is correct?

Substituted syrup for vanilla and added a little more sugar and butter (baking at 3am and didn't have any vanilla) turned out very good.

I just wanted something easy to make with my 5 year old. This one tasted okay, but is too dry for us.
