Sugar Cookie Recipe
Serves: 18 cookies
  • ½ cup butter
  • ¾ cup powdered sugar
  • 1 egg (mixed then 1+1/2 tablespoons removed to use in the recipe)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste or vanilla extract (or another extract flavor)
  • 1½ cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  1. Preheat oven to 400°.
  2. In the bowl of a mixer, beat butter with sugar.
  3. Add in the egg (remember this is a small batch and you'll mix one egg and only add 1½ tablespoons of the egg mix) and vanilla bean paste/extract and mix until combined.
  4. Add in flour, baking powder, and salt and mix until all combined.
  5. Roll out cookie dough to ¼" in between wax paper.
  6. Cut out cookie with a cookie cutter. I used a 2" scalloped edged cookie cutter. (any round cutter would work)
  7. Place cut out cookie dough on parchment lined baking sheets.
  8. Bake for 7-8 minutes.
