Sugar Cookies

easy sugar cookies

You know those sugar cookies that look so delicious, but leave that bitter, weird after-taste?  These are not those cookies!  These are soft, and sweet, and oh-so-delicious! This particular cookie was cut into a puzzle for a silly little thank you gift.

Can Sugar Cookie Dough Be Frozen?

Sugar cookie dough can be frozen for up to 3 months.

Form dough into a ball and freeze in a heavy duty freezer bag.

Or, roll dough out and cut into shapes.

Freeze in a single layer on a parchment lined cookie sheet.

Once frozen, transfer cookies to a heavy duty freezer bag.

Sugar cookie dough should be thawed in the refrigerator before baking.


How Long Will Sugar Cookies Keep?

Store sugar cookies in an air tight container in a cool, dry pantry or cupboard.

Sugar cookies will keep for up to 3 weeks.


Can You Use Margarine Instead Of Butter In Sugar Cookies?

You can substitute stick margarine for the butter in a cookie recipe.

But, margarine may affect the spread and texture of the final result.

Sugar Cookies
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes


  • 2 Cups Butter
  • 2 Cups Powdered Sugar
  • 3/4 Cup Sugar
  • 1/2 Tablespoon Vanilla
  • 1/2 Tablespoon Almond Ext.
  • 2 Eggs
  • 5 Cups Flour
  • 3/4 Tablespoon Baking Soda
  • 3/4 Tablespoon Cream of Tarter


  1. Mix butter, sugars, extracts, and eggs until fluffy.
  2. Add dry ingredients and mix until combined. Dough is soft, but should ball up. I like to use my hands to form the ball.
  3. Roll 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick (whatever you like-I like something closer to 1/4).
  4. Cut into shapes.
  5. Bake on 325 for 12 to 15 min.
Cookies will not be brown, if you like them soft. If you like them crisp, then let the edges brown just slightly.
