No Fail Sugar Cookies

Note: This recipe can make up to 5 dozen 3 inch cookies.


  • 6 cups flour
  • 3 tsp. baking powder
  • 2 cups butter
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract or desired flavoring (I like almond myself)
  • 1 tsp. salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  3. Add eggs and extracts and mix well.
  4. Mix dry ingredients and add a little at a time to butter mixture. Mix until flour is completely incorporated and the dough comes together.
  5. Chill for 1 to 2 hours, or portion and freeze for later use by double wrapping in plastic wrap.
  6. Roll to ¼” thick and cut into desired shapes. Bake on ungreased baking sheet for 12 minutes, or until just beginning to turn brown around the edges.
  7. Cool on cookie sheet for 5 to 10 minutes and then transfer to wire rack to cool completely for frosting or freezing.
