The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies!

I make the Best Rolled Sugar Cookies!  I really do!  A lot of people have asked me to share my recipe with them.  Actually, it's not my recipe.  I direct everyone to, which is where you can find it.  Today, I want to share the recipe with you here, provide you a link, and show you a gallery of pictures of my sugar cookies.

I do tweak it a little bit.  I add several shakes of cinnamon and some extra sugar.  Other than that, just follow the recipe.

You can find the recipe here.

Recipe By:Jill Saunders
"Whenever you make these cookies for someone, be sure to bring along several copies of the recipe! You will be asked for it, I promise! NOTE: I make icing with confectioners' sugar and milk. I make it fairly thin, as I 'paint' the icing on the cookies with a pastry brush. Thin enough to spread easily but not so thin that it just makes your cookies wet and runs off."


  • 1 1/2 cups butter, softened
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 5 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  1. In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Stir in the flour, baking powder, and salt. Cover, and chill dough for at least one hour (or overnight).
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Roll out dough on floured surface 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick. Cut into shapes with any cookie cutter. Place cookies 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets.
  3. Bake 6 to 8 minutes in preheated oven. Cool completely.

They are easy to make and they taste delicious!  Some of the cookie cutters that I used were the heart, flower, circle, tooth, owl, and Minnie Mouse.  I also have the whole alphabet in cookie cutters to make cookies for my classroom.
