Bakery Sugar Cookies

Preparation 20 mins Total Time 0:20



  1. In a large bowl/your mixer, cream butter and sugar.
  2. Add eggs and vanilla.
  3. Gradually add flour, baking powder and salt, mixing well.
  4. Refrigerate dough for 1 hour.
  5. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line your cookie sheets with parchment paper. Roll out dough to ¼-1/3" thick. Press your cookie cutter onto the cookie sheets, leaving a half inch or so between each. Peel away your excess dough. {No flouring needed! Yay!} Bake 6-7 minutes and allow to cool.


Quick tip: Refrigerate remaining dough while you’re rolling out dough to keep it solid & as simple as possible.
