A classic sugar cookie.

Ingredients

  • 2 & 1/2 cups flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 sticks butter at room temperature
  • 1 & 1/4 cups white sugar
  • 3 egg yolks at room temperature
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 cup white sugar

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and prepare your cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Whisk together your flour, baking soda, and baking powder in a mixing bowl and set aside.
  3. In a larger mixing bowl and with a hand mixer, beat together both the butter and sugar until fully combined.
  4. Add egg yolks and vanilla and continue to mix.
  5. Add flour mixture and incorporate into wet mixture until just combined.
  6. Scoop tablespoon sized cookie dough balls, roll in sugar, and place onto baking sheet about 1" - 2" apart.
  7. Bake cookies for 10 - 15 minutes or until the tops of your sugar cookies begin to crack.
  8. Let cookies cool for 5 minutes on cookie sheet before moving to a wire rack to cool entirely.

Notes

  • Room Temperature Ingredients: Be sure to allow your dairy ingredients to reach room temperature. Room temperature ingredients not only combine more effortlessly (no over-mixing needed) but they also trap air so much better. This trap air will expand and produce a fluffy texture during your baking process.
  • Prepared Pan: There will always be the "next best way to prepare your pan" article. Simply put however, the most effective way i find in my kitchen is a light rub of shortening around the sides, parchment paper on the bottom of the pan (for majority of baking pans), & a very light dusting of flour (cocoa powder for chocolate baked goods) all throughout.
