Sugar Cookies
These are the perfect texture and taste light, crisp, subtle butter flavor and not too sweet.
Recipe type: Valentine's Day, Cookies, Dessert, Holidays
Cuisine: Gluten-Free
  • 1 cup butter (I use 1 stick salted, 1 stick unsalted)
  • 1½ cup sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 3 cups flour, then 1½ c more flour (I use GF Jules (affiliate link))
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  1. Cream the butter until light and fluffy.
  2. Add the sugar and mix very well with the butter.
  3. Add the vanilla and milk, the 2 eggs and blend well.
  4. Sift together the 3 cups of flour, baking powder and salt and then add to the above mixture, beating well after each addition.
  5. Add 1½ cup more flour or less as needed. The idea is that it should be stiff enough to roll.
  6. Chill (at least 1 hour - I usually make the day before and then take it out to almost room temp so that it is easy to roll) and roll and cut out, sprinkle with colored sugar.
  7. Bake at 375 degrees for 8-10 minutes on ungreased tin.
Note: Recipe can be cut in half.
