Grammy’s Sugar Cookies

The thing that should really sell you on this recipe, is that you don't have to chill the dough. You can take these cookies from recipe to fresh out of the oven in about 20 minutes. You only need 7 ingredients, and I nearly guarantee that you have them all on hand. Grab you sugar and butter, lets bake!


  • 1 1/4 cup real butter, I use salted butter
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 5 cups flour
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup milk


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar using an electric mixer.
  3. Add eggs and beat until fluffy.
  4. Add flour, salt, and soda. Mix until nearly combined. Add milk and mix. Dough will be crumbly.
  5. Use hands to form dough in to 3 balls.
  6. One at a time, roll a ball of dough out on to a floured surface 1/4-1/2 inch thick. Use your favorite cookie cutters to cut shapes. You can also use a glass to make circles.
  7. Place on baking sheet and sprinkle with colored sugars or other sprinkles.
  8. Bake for 9 minutes until puffed up but do not let the edges brown.
  9. Repeat with the remaining dough.
  10. Enjoy!!
