Quick and Easy Rolled Sugar Cookies

 

I generally don’t have enough forethought to mix up cookie dough and let it chill for 2 – 3 hours before my children can roll it out and cut out fun shapes.  When the kiddos decide they want to make cookies, the process needs to be rather instantaneous.  This recipe requires just a few ingredients and it is ready immediately to roll out and cut.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt

Directions:

In a large stand mixer, cream softened butter and sugar together.  Add egg and vanilla.  Combine flour, salt, and baking soda and add to bowl and mix well.  (I don’t dirty a second bowl – just toss it all into one big mixing bowl.)

Divide dough and roll it out!  Cut into shapes.  Bake at 375 on cookie sheet (lightly sprayed with cooking spray) for about 8 to 10 minutes.

This recipe made about 3 dozen Christmas cookies ready to be eaten or decorated!  Enjoy!

    Hi Erin, thanks for the recipe! Megan & I just made a batch of large cookies using this recipe and our child-friendly Kuhn Rikon cookie cutters. Delicious! Can’t wait to decorate them now.

    Thanks so much! We have been looking for a simpler sugar cookie recipe that doesn’t make too many and doesn’t require chilling (for all the kid reasons you already said). We had a great time making them and then used a simple glaze with sprinkles on top. They taste great. Thanks!! (I blogged them here.)

    Hi! I made these the other day and found that they were too sticky and that I had to add about a handful of flour, but other than that they’re great!
