I wanted to make some whimsical decorated sugar cookie for Valentines Day. I got the idea of these from Fancy Flours.
They were perfect for the occasion, and were super easy to make. I just frosted and covered with colored sugar.Print
This is the BEST rolled sugar cookie recipe I’ve ever made! It is so easy to roll out, re-roll, and tastes delicious.
- 6 c. all-purpose flour
- 3 tsp. baking powder
- 1 tsp. salt
- 2 c. unsalted butter
- 2 c. granulated sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 2 tsp. vanilla extract
- Cream sugar and butter until fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add eggs and vanilla. Mix dry ingredients in separate bowl and add to butter mixture. Mix well.
- Put a handful of the freshly made dough between two sheets of parchment paper and roll to desired thickness. Repeat with the rest of the dough. Put the rolled dough, including the parchment paper, on a cookie sheet and refrigerate for 10 minutes or longer. Your dough will be chilled and ready to cut and bake with no wait and no added flour! Repeat with scraps after cutting cookies.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 8 -10 minutes. Let cool.
These cookies are perfect for decorating with royal icing as I did in these “lips” cookies.
