Our Sugar Cookies are a classic favorite, and simple to make! This easy cookie recipe is great as-is, or you can use the same dough with other flavorings to come up with fun variations.

What You'll Need:
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup vegetable shortening
  • 1 cup sugar, plus extra for sprinkling
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon rind
  • 2 eggs, well beaten
  • 1 tablespoon heavy cream or milk
What To Do:
  1. In a medium bowl combine flour, baking powder and salt, mix well.
     
  2. In a large bowl with an electric mixer, cream the shortening and sugar. Add the remaining ingredients and beat until light and fluffy. Gradually add flour mixture and beat until well blended.
     
  3. Form dough into 2 balls, cover and chill for at least two hours.
     
  4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
     
  5. On a lightly floured work surface, using a rolling pin roll 1 ball of dough to 1/4-inch thickness. Using cookie cutters, cut out cookies and place on ungreased baking sheets. Decorate with sprinkles or decorative sugars.
     
  6. Bake 6-8 minutes or until golden around the edges. Move to a wire rack to cool completely. 
Notes
  • Make these cookies all your own by using cookie cutters to cut them into your favorite shapes, or by adding some fun decorations!
  • We like sprinkling our sugar cookies with sugar sprinkles 'cause it's so easy to do; just check out our How To Make Colored Sugar page for this easy decorating idea!
