Rolled sugar cookies are a classic treat, especially popular during holidays when you can cut them into festive shapes.

Here’s a simple recipe for rolled sugar cookies: Ingredients: 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened 1 cup granulated sugar 1 large egg 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 3 cups all-purpose flour 1/2 teaspoon baking powder 1/4 teaspoon salt For Decorating: Royal icing Food coloring (if desired) Sprinkles or other decorations Instructions: Creaming Butter and Sugar: In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and sugar until light and fluffy. This usually takes about 3-5 minutes. Adding Egg and Vanilla: Add the egg and vanilla extract to the butter and sugar mixture.

Mix until well combined. Dry Ingredients: In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Combining Wet and Dry Ingredients: Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing just until the dough comes together. Be careful not to overmix. Chill the Dough: Divide the dough into two equal portions, shape each into a disk, wrap in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 1-2 hours. Chilling the dough makes it easier to handle and helps prevent cookies from spreading too much during baking. Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line baking sheets with parchment paper.

Rolling and Cutting: On a floured surface, roll out one portion of the chilled dough to about 1/4 inch thickness. Use cookie cutters to cut out shapes and transfer them to the prepared baking sheets. Baking: Bake the cookies in the preheated oven for 8-10 minutes or until the edges are lightly golden.

The exact time may vary depending on your oven and the size of your cookies. Cooling: Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely. Decorating: Once the cookies are completely cooled, you can decorate them with royal icing, food coloring, and sprinkles. Allow the decorations to set before storing. These rolled sugar cookies are perfect for any occasion and can be customized to suit your taste and the season. Enjoy baking and decorating!
