A classic sugar cookie.

Ingredients

  • 4 cups flour, sifted
  • 1/3 cup corn starch
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Sift your the flour, corn starch and salt in a large bowl. Give it a whisk.
  2. In your standing mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream the butter and sugar together.
  3. Add the eggs while mixing. Scrape down sides of the bowl.
  4. Add 1 tsp vanilla extract.
  5. Pour in the flour mixture and mix until everything is well incorporated.
  6. Put the dough in a plastic bag, flatten it together, then chill it in the refrigerator so it firms up.
  7. Once the dough is chilled, place it on a rolling mat, sprinkle with flour and roll out with a rolling pin. Move the dough around so to prevent it from sticking.
  8. Use a circular cookie cutter to cut out your cookies. Take away extra scraps to re-roll for more cookies.
  9. Place them on a non-stick baking sheet and bake at 375F for 12 minutes.

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.
