Sugar Cookie Cut-Out Recipe

Sugar Cookies


  • 3 cups flour

  • 1 tsp baking powder (not mentioned in video) Decrease amount or omit if you want extremely precise edges.

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature

  • 1/2 cup white sugar

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar

  • 1 egg

  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract

  • 1 tsp butter flavour

  • 1 tbsp milk


  • In a bowl, mix flour, baking powder and salt. Whisk and set aside.
  • In a bowl fitted with a paddle attachment, beat butter for a minute until smooth.
  • Add the sugars and beat until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed.
  • Add the egg and extracts. Beat until incorporated, making sure to scrape down the sides of the bowl.
  • Mix in the dry ingredients on low speed, in two additions. Add milk in between. Stop mixing once everything is mixed and no traces of flour.
  • Split the dough into 2 discs, plastic wrap each one, and chill for about 1-2 hours, or until dough is firmed up.
  • Roll dough out to 1/4 inch thick with a little flour so it won’t stick.
  • Cut out desired shapes, roughly around the same size.
  • Bake on parchment lined cookie sheet for about 10-14 minutes, (depending on size of cookies) or until just slightly barley brown on edges. Decorate as desired with my royal icing recipe.
