Easy Sugar Cookies Recipe And Instruction
Tinfoil / Parchment Paper
I've been using the new baking paper that has parchment paper on one side and tinfoil on the other side. You just cut a piece to fit the bottom of the baking pan or cookie sheet and you can clean up in seconds. You want to put the tinfoil side down and the parchment side up. You also don't have to use any cooking spray for cookies if you use this product.
You'll want to start by pre-heating your oven to 375 degrees. In a small bowl sift together the flour, baking powder, and baking soda and then once you get it sifted together sift it again. Then set aside.
In a large bowl with your electric hand mixer cream together your butter and sugur until light and fluffy.
Mix in your egg and vanilla extract and then slowly mix in the dry flour mixture until everything is very well mixed together.
Roll rounded teaspoons of the cookie dough into balls after you have floured your hands well. Put the balls of cookie dough onto a lightly greased cookie sheet or onto the parchment paper if your using baking powder.
Bake for 8 - 10 minutes in your pre-heated oven until your cookies are light golden brown. Remove from the oven and let them stand for about five minutes on the cookie sheet before you put them on cookie racks or a tray.
These are some of the best sugar cookies you'll ever eat in your life.
