My Favorite Rolled Sugar Cookies

Recipe by AndreaVT96
READY IN: 19mins
YIELD: 2-3 dozen




  • In a large bowl, cream together sugar, butter, milk, vanilla and egg.
  • Lightly spoon flour into a measuring cup, level off. Add the flour, baking powder and salt to creamed mix, mix well.
  • Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour for easier handling.
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • On lightly floured surface, roll out 1/3 of the dough at a time to approximately 1/8 inch thickness (I don't whip out a measuring tape at this point--just an estimation--eyeball to the thickness that you prefer.).
  • Cut with desired cookie cutters.
  • Place 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Decorate as desired.
  • Bake at 400 degrees 5-9 minutes until edges are very light golden. (In my oven, this takes about 6 minutes.) Be careful not to overbake (if you like soft cookies, as I do.).
  • Immediately remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks.
