These sugar cookies are a deli-style sugar cookie. More like what you’d get from subway or someplace like that. They’re not a Valentine or Christmas cookie style sugar cookie. These are great when you’ve got a craving for sugar cookies because they whip up fast and they make about 2 dozen perfectly every time. I can’t remember where I got the recipe years ago, but it is quick and easy and they always turn out great and soft!
2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 cup butter, rooom temperature
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1. Preheat to 375 degrees. In a small bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, and baking powder. Set aside.
2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in egg and vanilla. Gradually blend in the dry ingredients. Roll rounded teaspoonfuls of dough into balls, and place onto ungreased cookie sheets. I like to push down just slightly on the top of the dough ball with my palm so they cook flatter for speading frosting later.
3. Bake 8-9. Don’t overcook! Let stand on cookie sheet 2 minutes before removing to cool on wire racks. Cool completely and frost as desired.
