Everyone needs a tried and true recipe. The standby. The one you have memorized because you've made it so many times. The holidays are a stressful time, and sometimes the only thing that can make it better is the food and drink involved. This holiday season I have quite a few recipes lined up that I want to make. I've got a pretty ambitious Pinterest board with some of my aspirations and I'm planning on making a board filled only with recipes I've actually successfully made.
I thought I'd start off December with a tried and true sugar cookie recipe.
The Perfect Sugar Cookie
What you will need:
2 3/4 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 cup butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350
Combine dry ingredients and set aside.
Whisk egg, butter and vanilla extract together
Add wet ingredients to the dry bowl slowly
Flour a cutting board generously. Roll the dough onto the board so that it is evenly distributed (about 1/4 inch). Use your favorite cookie cutter, then transfer to a baking sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes.
I'm always torn on the frosting. Sometimes I make it with confectioners sugar and milk but I never get it exactly how I want it.
What about you? Do you like your sugar cookies with or without frosting? Leave your recipes in the comments!
