Sugar Cookie Recipe

sugar cookie recipe

Every year I bake Christmas cookies for family and friends.  I usually start in the beginning of December but this year I’m a little behind.  I have an old binder that I I keep all of my recipes in and often get asked to share.  I’m not one of those people who keep all of my recipes secret so this year I decided to share with all of you.  Sharing is caring, right?  So the first recipe in my Christmas Cookie Recipe Series is an easy and delicious sprinkle sugar cookie.


2 3/4 cups flour

1 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. baking powder

1 cup butter, softened

1 1/2 cups granulated sugar

1 egg

1 tsp. vanilla extract



1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a small bowl combine dry ingredients, flour, baking soda, baking powder.

2. In a large bowl, (I use a kitchen aid) cream together sugar and butter until smooth.  Add egg and vanilla.  Slowly add in dry ingredients and be sure everything is fully combined.

3.  Roll rounded teaspoonfuls of dough into balls.  Then, roll dough in sprinkles making sure dough ball is fully covered.  Place dough on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.

4.  Bake for 8 – 10 minutes in the preheated oven,or until cookies are golden.  Let cookies stand for a few minutes before placing on cooling racks.

These cookies freeze well if you want to make them a few weeks in advance.  Stay tuned for more cookie recipes, including Thumbprints, Christmas Mountain Cookies, Cream Cheese Cookies, Peanut Butter Blossoms, and Rainbow Cookies.
