Cooking with Phyllis

Sugar Cookies


  • 1 cup butter “2 sticks” (don’t use margarine)
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons of cream or milk
  • 1 teaspoon of pure vanilla (not imitation)
  • 3 cups all purpose flour (King Arthur preferred)
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

Preheat oven to 375°F.

Mix together the butter and sugar till fluffy.

Beat in the eggs, cream or milk, and vanilla.

Now add the flour, salt, baking powder (which has been all sifted together).

Mix well.

Drop by teaspoonful on buttered cookie sheet about 1” apart.

Sprinkle top of each cookie with sugar.

Bake about 8 minute at 375°, but make sure you don’t over bake them.

Have fun!

  • Make sure you use butter because you want the good buttery flavor.

  • King Arthur flour is never bleached and the very best flour you can bake with.

  • I use a small ice cream scoop to put the batter on the cookie sheet.

  • I put a silicon matt on the cookie sheet to keep the cookies from browning too much.

  • For holidays you can roll out the dough (after it is refrigerated to firm it up) and cut out the cookies and decorate them.
