This recipe makes a simple but versatile vanilla sugar cookie with only a few ingredients and no fancy techniques The dough is easy to work with you ll be able to roll cut with ease and they are bound to be the perfect go to cookie recipe for any holiday cookies This recipe requires chilling your dough and yes I know chilling is a pain BUT rest assured that your patience will be paid off afterwards I found chilling my cookie dough before and after cutting really helps to prevent spreading during baking It also makes your dough very easy to manage when it comes time to roll it out and to cut out with perfect defined edges so trust me when I tell you that it is well worth the wait INGREDIENTS 175 grams icing sugar 225 grams salted butter room temperature 1 egg room temperature 2 teaspoons vanilla extract or any flavour your prefer 1 teaspoon baking powder 420 grams all purpose flour INSTRUCTIONS Cream together butter and icing sugar Add eggs and vanilla extract and mix well Sift together flour baking powder add to the mixture little by little until well incorporated Wait approximately 30 60 mins before working with the dough as it will firm up slightly Roll the dough between baking paper and put it into the fridge for a few hours this will help prevent spreading When the dough is a bit firmer take it out of the fridge and cut into desired shapes lightly dust with flour if necessary Place the cut out cookie dough into a baking tray then put it into the fridge again for another 1 2 hours this will also help prevent spreading Bake cookies at 180 Celsius for approx 10 12 minutes times may vary slightly depending on your oven Note Each oven is different I would recommend you get to know your oven and adjust the time accordingly USEFUL TIPS for making perfect sugar cookies Ensure that you ALWAYS use room temperature butter in the video i have shown you how to check if your butter have reached the correct room temperature I can t stress enough on how important this is Test your butter by pressing it they should give slightly but it should still hold its shape If you use butter that have melted too much and too soft you will end up with a dough that is too soft and hard to work with When its time to cut your cookie dough make sure to keep your cuts as close together to get as many cookies out of your dough as possible I usually divide my dough into half before rolling them you would have seen this in my video and when it comes to re rolling your scraps after your first cut I usually add the second half from my un rolled dough with the scraps and knead them together then re roll and cut again Chill your dough if you want a perfect cut out cookies with define edges I can t tell you how much chilling really helps my dough to retain they shape and prevent spreading so for those of you who are impatient out there if you want perfect cut out cookies I m afraid you will have to wait and practice being patient LOL If you want to print this recipe you can find the written recipe on my website here is the link All my cookies decorated with Royal icing so if you are NEW to cookie decorating these video tutorials will help you in your cookie decorating journey If like this video please leave a thumbs up and I invite you to SUBSCRIBE to my channel as it is through your support that I will able to make more videos THANK YOU SO MUCH Subscribe Likes Share Enjoy Turn on the Notification bell to stay updated If you love my tutorials and want to show your support as well as wanting to see more from me please consider buying me a cup of coffee It will go a loooongggg way in getting me thru the a long series of decorating sessions and all the late nights video editing sessions Thank you so much in advance and it will truly means a lot to me Follow me on Instagram Facebook Visit my website for ideas inspiration recipes and tutorials Music Credit Run Away by Declan DP CookieliciousNZ SugarCookieRecipe CookieDecorating
