For me personally, my favorite time to bake is the when the temperature starts to drop here in Indiana. I love when the kitchen is filled with warm air from the oven and I can relax by trying a new Pinterest recipe.
One of my top missions this year was to find the BEST sugar cookie recipe. Good news? After months of searching, I have finally found it. This recipe was originally found on Pinterest. I tried out a few recipes before in the past couple of years but none of them can top this recipe.
When these cookies came out of the oven, I won’t lie – they looked a little underdone. This was a disclaimer in the original recipe, but I was a little weary. FEAR NOT. After cooling down these raw looking cookies turned into soft chewy delicious sugar cookies.

30 – 32 Cookies
2 3/4 Cups All-Purpose Flour
1 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Salt
1 Cup Unsalted Butter, Room Temperature
1 Cup + 2 Tbsp Granulated Sugar
2 Tbsp Brown Sugar
2 tsp Vanilla Extract
1/4 Cup Sugar (Additional for Rolling)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line Baking Sheet with Silicone Baking Mats or Parchment Paper.
- Combine Flour, Baking Soda, Baking Powder & Salt in a medium sized bowl.
- Cream the butter and sugars tougher in a large mixer bowl on medium speed until light in color and fluffy. ( I used a hand mixer)
- Add the egg and mix until well combined.
- Mix in the vanilla extract.
- Combine the dry & wet ingredients until the dough is thick. The dough should not be sticky.
- Create 1 to 2 Tablespoon sized balls of cookie dough. Roll in additional sugar to coat. Sit balls on baking sheet.
- Bake cookies for 7-8 minutes. Remove just before the edges begin to turn golden. The cookies will be a little puffy when you take them out of the oven but will fill a bit as they cool.
This recipe will definitely be added to my recipe box. I love a classic sugar cookie. My next moutain? Find a great Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe. I LOVE the ones Kroger makes, but have not found a recipe that holds up to them.
