Annie's Sugar Cookies

This is my FAVORITE sugar cookie recipe EVER. My sweet friend, Annie McDaniel, is the one who shared it with me years ago. It's my go-to recipe because it's not only EASY but there's no need to chill the dough prior to rolling out. actually produces a nice tasting cookie! *wink*

1 large egg
1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 3/4 c. flour
2 tsp. baking powder

Using an electric mixer, mix wet ingredients: egg, butter, sugar & vanilla
Add dry ingredients...mix well.

Roll out dough on floured surface and cut with cookie cutters.
Bake at 400 degrees for 6-7 minutes

yields: approx. 24 - 3" cookies OR 150 - 1.5" cookies

Now all you need is some royal icing to decorate your's my all-time favorite!


  1. Hello from Thailand,

    I like handmade things. I bake some easy bakery sometime. I think decorated cookies are also handmade things. I search for an easy one to practise so I found your blog. Your cookies, Annie's sugar cookies, are so cute. I hope it's easy enough for me to start decorate cookie.
    I'll try this weekend and show them on my blog (if I'm successful). (THAI)

    nice to meet you.

  2. Hey Jessica! Should the butter be room temperature, melted or right out of the refrigerator? I'm going to try these for Christmas cookies.
