Description

Soft Sugar Cookies are tendery, buttery cutout cookies. They hold their shape and have a smooth, tender bite.

Ingredients

  • 10 Tablespoons Butter Or Margarine
  • ⅔ cups Sugar
  • ½ teaspoons Kosher Salt
  • 1 whole Egg
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 2 Tablespoons Non-dairy Milk
  • 1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
  • 2-½ cups Flour
  • Powdered Sugar, For Dusting
  • Decorations As Desired

Preparation

Preheat oven to 375ºF. Prepare a cookie sheet with parchment paper and a light spray of oil.

Cream margarine, sugar and kosher salt on high speed until light in texture and very pale yellow. Add egg and mix on low. Add vanilla extract, non-dairy milk, and baking powder and mix on low to combine.

Add flour and mix on low to combine. Be careful not to over mix, just combine.

Dust surface and rolling pin with powdered sugar. Roll out the dough to ¼ inch thickness. Cut shapes out with knife or cookie cutters. Place onto prepared cookie sheet with approximately ½ inch between cookies. If using sugar as a topping, add to the cookies now.

Bake at 375ºF for 8–10 minutes. The cookies should not be golden on top or bottom. They should be “just” cooked.

Cool cookies on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before being transferred to a cooling rack. Allow cookies to cool completely before frosting or decorating them.

Soft Sugar Cookies keep at room temperature for a week or even longer in the refrigerator. Be sure to store in an airtight container.
