The Best Sugar Cookie Recipe
These sweet and fluffy sugar cookies are perfect for a sweet tooth treat!
Room temperature butter, unsalted
Preheat oven to 350°
In a bowl, mix flour, baking soda, and baking powder along with salt and set aside
Beat together sugar and butter until well mixed and fluffy
Then add egg and mix before adding the vanilla extract
Add dry ingredients in thirds until well mixed
Your dough will be semi sticky and not too firm (that's okay)
Using a tablespoon, dollop spoonfuls of the dough onto two cookie sheets
With a spoon or pinching your fingers, sprinkle extra sugar on top of each cookie. You can add colorful sprinkles and different toppings here (optional)
Set in oven and bake for 8-9 minutes or until edges are very slightly golden brown (don't over bake or cookies will not be soft)
Take out and let cool for a few minutes, then enjoy!
