Everyone needs an Easy Sugar Cookies Recipe! These are literally melt-in-your-mouth delicious. I am positive these Christmas cookies will win you over. 


  • 1 cup unsalted butter softened at room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg (large)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour (measured correctly)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 °F with a rack in the center. Whisk together flour with baking powder in a small bowl and set aside. 

  2. Using a stand-up or handheld mixer, beat the butter together with sugar. To the mixture add vanilla extract and egg and beat to combine.

  3. To the butter mixture, add flour in 3 parts until fully incorporated. 

  4. Divide the dough into two equal parts. On a lightly floured surface, roll into ¼-inch thickness. Use a cookie cutter to cut out your favorite shapes. 

  5. Bake cookies on a parchment or silicone-lined baking sheet at 350˚F for 10 minutes, or until the edges are just beginning to turn golden.

  6. Let the cookies cool for about 5 minutes on the baking sheet before moving them to a wire rack to cool completely.
