Easy Cut Out Sugar Cookies
These easy cut out sugar cookies are soft, delicious and great for decorating. Made with a no chill dough and only 5 ingredients, they are super easy and quick to make.
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 1 1/4 cup sugar
- 2 eggs, room temperature
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 3 cups flour
- 1/2 tsp salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Beat the butter and sugar together in a stand mixer or using a handheld mixer until light colored and flluffy.
Add eggs and vanilla and beat until ingredients are thoroughly combined.
Scrape down sides of bowl and add flour and salt. With mixer on low, beat in flour until dough begins to form.
After your dough has formed, half your cookie dough and roll out each half onto wax paper to your desired thickness. Cover with plastic wrap and freeze for about 5-10 minutes. This makes it easier to cut out cookies. When the dough is cold, cut out cookie shapes and place on a non stick cookie sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes or until lightly golden brown.
Remove from oven and let cool.
