Cut Out Basic Sugar Cookie (Recipe)


Permitted use provided by:


  • 1-1/2 cups butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup cream cheese, softened
  • 3 cups white sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 TBS homemade pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • 5 cups flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder substitute
  • 1 tsp salt


PREHEAT oven to 400 degrees. Line the cookie sheets with parchment paper.

Sift the flour, baking powder and salt together; set aside.

Cream the butter and sugar until smooth and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, and mix well after each addition. Add the vanilla. In 1 cup measurements, add the dry ingredients to the creamed mixture; mixing well after each addition. Cover and chill the dough for at least 1 hour.

Roll the dough out on a sugared surface (do not put flour down) to 1/2 inches thick. Cut into shapes and place carefully one inch apart, on the prepared cookie sheet. Bake for 6-8 minutes. This is a wonderful basic sugar cookie recipe.
