Sugar Cookies recipe

 

Have you ever wanted to make sugar cookies? Maybe for your friends, teachers, or for your family? Well here’s the recipe:

 

Ingredients:

 

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • ¾ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • Powdered sugar, for rolling dough

 

Directions:

 

  • Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside. 
  • Place butter and sugar in a large bowl of an electric stand mixer and beat until light in color. Add egg and milk and beat to combine. Put mixer on low speed, gradually add flour, and beat until mixture pulls away from the side of the bowl. 
  • Divide the dough in half, wrap in waxed paper, and refrigerate for 2 hours.
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Sprinkle surface where you will roll out dough with powdered sugar. 
  • Remove 1 wrapped pack of dough from refrigerator at a time, sprinkle rolling pin with powdered sugar, and roll out dough to 1/4-inch thick. 
  • Move the dough around and check underneath frequently to make sure it is not sticking. 
  • If the dough has warmed during rolling, place cold cookie sheet on top for 10 minutes to chill. 
  • Cut into the desired shape, place at least 1-inch apart on a greased baking sheet, parchment, or silicone baking mat, and bake for 7 to 9 minutes or until cookies are just beginning to turn brown around the edges, rotating cookie sheet halfway through baking time.
  • Let sit on the baking sheet for 2 minutes after removal from the oven and let them cool.
