How To Make Sugar Cookies

Chewy Sugar Cookies

Hey, Ya’ll, Baking with Donna is here today with a post that is fun, delicious, and perfect for the holiday season and throughout the year. I have created a recipe for sugar cookies, which are ideal for decorating for the season. When decorated with royal icing and sprinkles, these cookies are a beautiful gift or dessert. These cookies are very easy to make, but look complicated. I hope you enjoy it!


  • 1 ¼ cups unsalted butter, one stick
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 egg, room temperature
  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour


  1. In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar.
  2. Add the egg, vanilla extract, and salt and mix to combine.
  3. Gradually add the flour a little at a time to create a soft dough.
  4. Place dough in the refrigerator for 30 minutes before rolling into a log shape.

These cookies are great to decorate with sprinkles, colored sugars, or soft cookies frosting. My favorite is just plain with nothing on them and of course a good cup of coffee!☕

Whip up a batch of them for the weekend and let me know what you think. I am positive you are going to love them and so will your family and friends. Enjoy!

From my family to yours, Happy New Year!🎉🎇🎉🎇

Happy Baking,

Donna Kennedy👩‍🍳
