Sugar Cookie Recipe


In A Nutshell

This is a simple, good basic sugar cookie recipe.

Sugar Cookie Recipe


Preschool, Elementary, Tweens, Teens

What You Will Need

  • 1/4 c. butter
  • 1/4 c. margarine
  • 1 c. granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2-2/3 c. all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 c. sour cream


Preheat oven to 425°. Combine dry ingredients in separate bowl and set aside. Mix butter, margarine, sugar, egg and vanilla until creamy. Alternately add small amounts of dry ingredients then sour cream to the mixture, until all has been combined. Divide dough into three portions. Roll out on well-floured work surface to 1/4" thickness. Dust cookie cutter with flour, then use to cut cookies. We recommend a 2-3" diameter cookie cutter. Place cookies on lightly greased baking sheet or sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake until lightly brown, 8-10 minutes for a delicious, soft cookie. Do not over-bake.

Powdered Sugar Icing

  • 2 cups sifted powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoons milk
  • 1 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • Food color
  • Sprinkles (optional)

Combine ingredients. Beat at medium speed until smooth, adding additional milk if necessary, to reach desired glazing consistency. Tint with food color, if desired.

Ice cookies. Decorate with sprinkles.

Yield: 30 three inch cookies
