“Delicious melt in your mouth sugar cookie dough for using your favorite cookie cutters. The cookies are so good that sometimes I don't even bother to frost them. I found a similar recipe online and tweeked it to the following.”
READY IN:
17mins
YIELD:
24 cookies
UNITS:
US

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Cream together softened butter and confectioners sugar.
  2. Whisk egg and flavor extracts in a separate bowl.
  3. Add the egg mixture to the butter/sugar mixture. Mix until egg is thoroughly incorporated.
  4. In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, and salt.
  5. Add the flour mixture, little by little, to the butter/sugar/egg mixture. You can tell the dough is ready when most of it sticks to the paddle. When touched, it has a little big, but does not stick to fingers.
  6. Roll out 1/4inch thick onto parchment paper. Dust as necessary with confectioners sugar instead of flour.
  7. Cut with your favorite cookie cutters, place on baking pan, and bake at 400 degrees for 7-8 minutes.
  8. For high altitude, add 1/4 cup of flour and reduce sugar by 2 tablespoons bake at 415 for 4 minutes.
