Sugar Cookie Recipe!


  • 2 Sticks of Butter (cool but not room temp)
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 Cup of Sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp Vanilla
  • 1 1/2 tsp Lemon Juice
  • 1/2 tsp Salt (I skip this if I use salted butter)
  • 3 Cups of All Purpose Flour


  • Whip butter in a stand mixer until smooth
  • Add sugar and whip until light and fluffy
  • Add egg, vanilla, and lemon juice
  • Whip until combined
  • Add salt (if you used unsalted butter)
  • Add flour a cup at a time, mixing between cups
  • Mix dough until it sticks to paddled and the side of the bowl are clean
  • Wrap in saran wrap and let rest for 30 minutes

Rolling & Baking

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees - use an oven thermometer! Ovens lie!
  • Roll out dough between two pieces of saran wrap or parchment
  • I use a Joseph&Joseph rolling pin with guides set to 3/8"
  • There is no need to use flour when rolling out
  • Using flour will change the taste of the dough
  • Cut the dough using desired cookie cutters -  I prefer Cut It Out Cutters - lol yeah I'm hilarious
  • Bake cookies on a silpat-like mat or parchment
  • I use amazon basics mats - they rock and they're cheap
  • Bake for 6 min - rotate pan - and bake for a few more min
  • It really depends on the size of cookies you have but use your best judgement
  • Tips: I don't over bake. This results in rock hard cookies once they've cooled. I shoot for barely done cookies and let them sit on the hot pan until cooled - they'll continue to bake.
