Deluxe Sugar Cookies
Total TimePrep: 20 min. + chilling Bake: 10 min./batch
Makes5 dozen (2-inch cookies)
These are the best sugar cookie for anytime and perfect for cut-out Christmas cookies! Simple recipe, bakes up fast and makes a big batch. They are exactly the right combination of sweet but not too sweet. I also add 1/2 teaspoon of salt and use a bit of cooking spray on the cookie sheet. They slide right off, and keep their cut-out shape. Delicious!
Perfect Christmas cookie cut-outs! :) Instead of 1 cup of butter, I use 1/2 cup of margarine and 1/2 cup crisco. This makes the cookies a little thicker/softer. These cookies are so good!
This is "The Best" sugar cookie. I have been making this recipe since my kids were little and they now are almost 55 and 50. I have a Grandson that won't let me make any other Sugar Cookie. Just mailed him some a couple of weeks ago.
Best sugar cookies I have ever made or eaten!
Excellent! I made these with my 7 yr old nephew, very easy. I chilled the dough for about 20 minutes in the freezer and they rolled out nicely.
I followed the recipe exactly as written, but my dough came out very soft. I chilled it over night so that I could roll out the cookies in the morning. I found that the dough got warm and soft very quickly, making it almost impossible to roll out and difficult to cut the cookie shapes. Should I have added more flour?
Excellent taste, rolled easily cut out easily! I cut almond extract to 1/4 Tsp.
The taste is good, but this recipe isn't very conducive to cutout cookies ... they don't hold their crisp shape when baking.
My Mom has been using this recipe for more than 40 years. It is a family favorite. Using parchment paper under the cookies helps prevent the issue of sticking to the cookie sheet.
Mmmmmm! My favorite sugar cookie recipe by far!
