Sugar Cookies

These cookies come out chewy and not too sweet. Be sure to watch them in the oven as the edges can brown or burn very quickly.

Sugar Cookies

Ingredients

3 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon sea salt (or 1 teaspoon kosher salt)
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 tablespoon milk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Powdered sugar, for rolling out dough

Directions

  1. Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  2. Place butter and sugar in large bowl of electric stand mixer and beat until light in color. Add egg, milk, and vanilla, and beat to combine. Put mixer on low speed, gradually add flour, and beat until mixture pulls away from the side of the bowl.
  3. Divide the dough in half, wrap in waxed paper, and refrigerate for 2 hours.
  4. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  5. Sprinkle surface where you will roll out dough with powdered sugar. Remove 1 wrapped pack of dough from refrigerator at a time, sprinkle rolling pin with powdered sugar, and roll out dough to 1/4-inch thick. Move the dough around and check underneath frequently to make sure it is not sticking. If dough has warmed during rolling, place cold cookie sheet on top for 10 minutes to chill.
  6. Cut into desired shape, place at least 1-inch apart on greased baking sheet, parchment, or silicone baking mat, and bake for 7 to 9 minutes or until cookies are just beginning to turn brown around the edges, rotating cookie sheet halfway through baking time. Let sit on baking sheet for 2 minutes after removal from oven and then move to complete cooling on wire rack. Serve as is or ice as desired. Store in airtight container for up to 1 week.
