Delicious Sugar Cookies

You know those delicious soft sugar cookies you find at Fry’s? Those circular ones with the buttercream frosting and sprinkles? I love them. If there was a birthday at my school, the birthday girl/boy brought those, everyone would just crowd around you and basically try to convince you that they know you well enough to deserve a cookie. In fact, I loved those cookies so much that for Christmas, I made those cookies at home instead of the traditional snappy ones. Instagram asked for this, so here is the recipe:

Serving Size : 2 dozen cookies

You will need:

  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour (gluten-free sub: Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 Baking Flour)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 tsp of baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp of baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup softened butter
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • pinch of salt

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F
  2. Combine butter, eggs, vanilla, and sour cream. Mix until well combined.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Make sure to sift all of them.
  4. Gradually add the dry ingredients. I recommend combining in 3 pours. Pour 1/3 dry mixture then min. Pour another 1/3 and mix. Once the mixture starts coming together as a dough, start using your hands to knead it. Don’t worry if the dough seems small in quantity… The cookies rise in the oven A LOT!!!
  5. Chill the dough for just 20 minutes
  6. Using an ice cream scooper, take balls of cookie dough and flatten in your hand. the cookie should be about quarter to half a centimeter thick. Another way you could do this is to roll out all the dough and use cookie cutters to cut out your cookies.
  7. Line a baking tray with parchment paper
  8. Bake for about 10 minutes. Keep a close eye on them. Bake until a toothpick/fork inserted in the cookie comes out clean.
  9. Take out of the oven and let them cool completely.
  10. Enjoy!
