Basic Sugar Cookies recipe

  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup superfine sugar
  • 1⁄2 tsp. salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1⁄2 tsp. almond extract or emulsion, optional
  • 2 1⁄2 cups all-purpose flour.

Cream butter, sugar and salt until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes with mixer set at medium speed. Add yolk, beat well. Add whole egg, vanilla and optional almond extract and beat until well incorporated. Add flour; beat at low speed just until flour is mixed in; do not over mix.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Dust work surface and rolling pin with flour. Roll dough to 1/4" thick, sprinkling with additional flour as needed to prevent sticking. Cut with Sugary Charm cookie cutter and place on parchment or silicone-lined pans. Bake in preheated oven until cookies appear dry on the surface and are light golden brown on the edges, about 10 minutes (very large cookies may take up to 12 or 13 minutes). Remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks and cool completely before decorating.
