    AnnieLynne's Note:

    A favorite with my family! These aren't overly sweet sugar cookies, so they are perfect for frosting. This recipe was originally taken from (Check out the Clabber Girl website - lots of great recipes!)

    My Private Note


    Serves: 1



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Sift together flour, salt, baking powder and sugar in a large mixing bowl.
    2. 2
      Cut in butter until fine.
    3. 3
      Add egg, cream (or evaporated milk), and vanilla.
    4. 4
      Roll out dough evenly on to a lightly floured surface. (I separate my dough into 3 pieces and roll each piece to 1/4 inch thickness.).
    5. 5
      Sprinkle with sugar. (I usually skip this step if I plan to frost the cookies).
    6. 6
      Cut out with cookie cutters and place on an ungreased baking sheet. (The cookies do not really spread much, so about an inch apart is fine.).
    7. 7
      Bake at 400F for 5 - 8 minutes or until edges just start to brown. (In my oven 6 minutes is perfect - the cookie is firm, but not over-cooked and the bottoms are just-browned.).
    8. 8
      Remove to cooling rack and cool completely before frosting.

      This is just like the one my Mother used from an old Pillsbury cookbook. ROLL to 1/8 inch.
      Can be refrigerated.

      I was looking for a sugar cookie that had cream in it, since I thought it might give the cookies a nice texture (not brittle or crisp). I appreciated that you told where the cookie recipe came from. I figured a baking powder company would have a great cookie recipe! I needed a lot for my son's project at school, so I made 4 batches of this recipe! It is easy to mix up (except in "batch 2" when I dropped the cream/egg mixture on the floor!). I wasn't sure how thin to roll the dough out, and decided that I liked them best on the thicker side (maybe 1/4-1/3 inches). The dough was very easy to roll out but I was having lots of trouble with the dough sticking, until I did this method: roll out, stick sheet in freezer, then cut out and bake. This way was "stress free" and my dough worked great. I baked these convection 400 degrees for about 5 min. I preferred them to be pretty light, with only a hint of brown of the edges (if any). I was very pleased with the taste and texture of these cookies! They turned out exactly how I hoped. I love your photo, too. Thanks Annie, for posting a great recipe for classic sugar cookies.
