Sugar Cookies

Author Marina


  • 1/2 cup butter (I prefer using Kerry Gold unsalted) room temperature
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 tsp milk


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F

  2. Gently mix (I love my KitchenAid to mix things) the butter, egg, sugar and vanilla together

  3. In a separate bowl mix the flour, baking soda and salt

  4. Gradually all the dry mix to the wet, in 3 batches, adding a tsp of milk after each batch

  5. When the cookie batter is mixed well, make 1 inch balls

  6. Place each ball on a cookie tray/pan, gently pressing down on each ball to flatten very lightly

  7. Bake on the middle rack of the oven for approximately 10 minutes.

  8. Remove and cool before frosting each cookie.
