Buttery Sugar Cookie Recipe


Buttery Sugar Cookie

After trying over 50 sugar cookie recipes, I found this one to be my absolute favorite. I love this basic sugar cookie recipe for many reasons. It taste great. It is simple with few ingredients. It will maintain it’s shape which makes the dough ideal for molding. You must chill the dough for a couple hours (or overnight is great) or it will be very sticky to work with.

  • 1 cup Butter, softened
  •  1 3-ounce package cream cheese, softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 cups all purpose flour

In large mixer bowl combine all cookie ingredients, except flour. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often until creamy. Reduce speed to low; add flour. Beat, scraping bowl often, until well mixed. Divide dough into 2 equal portions; wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate unitl firm (at least 2 hours). Heat oven to 350°. Roll out on lightly floured surface OR parchment paper. Bake for 7 to 10 minutes or until edges are very lightly browned. Remove from cookie sheets; cool completely.

  1. I love this recipe! I first got it from your Craftsy class (which is fantastic!). I used it for the first time last year for my sons first birthday and everyone raved about them. Made them again this year and same results. A beautiful soft crumb and very delicious – this is my go to recipe 🙂
    Thank you so much for sharing, now to try the chocolate 😉
