Easy no chill sugar cookies!

Recently my mother in law told me that she was looking for sugar cookie recipes and they were all quite difficult seeming. I knew there had to be an easier way, a no chill, straight to the oven way. This dough is soft, yummy, and best of all, EASY! These cookies will definitely be something we make every year now. She gave us a decoration kit. Next year I may try to make my own icing for them.

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup butter, room temp
  • 1 cup granulated white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract (I also think lemon would be good!)
  • 1 egg
  • Preheat oven to 350° F.
  • Cream the butter and sugar until smooth. I used my hand mixer but you could use a stand mixer, as well.
  • Add the extracts and the egg, beat again.
  • In a separate bowl combine baking powder with the flour.
  • Add a cup at a time at a time to the wet ingredients. Best each time.
  • The last cup will make it very difficult to beat in so, I just put on my big cutting board with some flour down.
  • Roll out the dough and cut shapes.
  • I cut my cookies a little thick (about 1/4 of an inch, maybe a little more) because I didn't want them crunchy.
  • Bake at 350 for 6-8 minutes. 
  • Let cool on the cookie sheet until firm enough to transfer.

We hope everyone had a great Christmas! I will definitely be making them every year. We had so much fun decorating them.
