This recipe makes old-fashioned sugar cookies free of eggs and suitable for rolling and cutting with cookie cutters. Decorate for the holidays, birthdays, or just a special everyday treat.

Prep Time: 30 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 40 minutes

Yield: about 40 cookies


  • 2 sticks of butter

  • 1 cup white sugar

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

  • 6 Tablespoons milk

  • 3 cups white flour

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 4 teaspoons baking powder


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Using an electric mixer, cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add vanilla and milk and beat.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, salt and baking powder. Mix into wet ingredients.

Dough will at first appear crumbly but will come together and stick if squeezed with hands. It should be somewhat dry.

Roll out dough on floured surface until it is about 1/4 inch thick. Cut shapes with cookie cutters. Using a spatula, gently lift shapes onto baking sheet.

Bake 8-10 minutes, until lightly browned. Allow to cool slightly on baking sheet, then use spatula to transfer to a cooling rack.

Frost or decorate as desired.
