Everyone needs that “go to” sugar cookie recipe. You know what I mean. It’s a sugar cookie that holds its cookie-cutter shape when you cut it but is soft, buttery and irresistible!
Here at Gamblnteam, we use this recipe year-round! Imagine heart-shaped valentine cookies, Easter egg cookies, Mother’s Day flower cookies, Father’s day tie cookies. (Wait, is that a thing?)
Regardless, you get the idea. Please enjoy this perfect recipe with our compliments:
Amanda’s Sugar Cookies
1-1/2 cups sugar
2/3 cup butter
2 tbs milk or cream
1 tsp vanilla
3-1/4 cups flour
2-1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
Cream sugar and butter until fluffy; add egg, vanilla and milk. Beat until smooth. Sift dry ingredients (I just use a whisk) and add to wet mixture gradually. Mix only until combined. Chill batter for a few minutes, then roll and cut. Refrigerate cookies on sheet for a couple of hours. Bake at 375 for 6-8 minutes. Check early! They are best taken from the oven when just barely starting to brown. Enjoy!
