Table of Contents


  • 3 cups of all-purpose flour. You can use almond flour or potato starch for gluten free sugar cookies.
  • 1/4 cup of Cornflour (cornstarch)
  • 170g of salted Butter
  • 150g of White sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract

Step on How to Make Easy Homemade Sugar Cookies Recipe

  • Combine the flour, cornstarch, and salt together in a bowl. Stir to combine and keep aside. The cornstarch provides crunchiness to this sugar cookies recipe.
  • In another bowl, add the sugar and butter together and beat or mix until it is soft, fluffy, and creamy in color. Using a hand electrical mixer, this can take about 10 minutes to achieve the light yellow (creamy) color and the softness you desire.
  • Add room temperature eggs and vanilla and mix to combine.
  • Now add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until you have a dough.
  • Once this sugar cookies recipe dough is smooth, transfer to a flat surface; but first of all, place a baking paper over the surface then cover the top of the dough with another baking paper before using a rolling pin to roll the sugar cookies dough to be flat; just about 1/2 an inch thick.
  • Now transfer the flatten dough to a tray and refrigerate for 20 minutes. Let the dough chill and become firm to make it easy for cut out cookies.
  • After 20 minutes, remove the dough and use a cookie cutter of any shape to start cutting the dough so as to have cut out sugar cookies.
  • Transfer the cut-out sugar cookies to a baking tray lined with a baking paper.
  • Now bake in the preheated oven at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 12 minutes or until it is almost brown in color but not completely brown.
