The Best No-Chilling-Required Cut-Out Sugar Cookies
These Cut-Out Sugar Cookies truly are the BEST! No chilling required makes them a breeze to make, too.
Servings: 18 -24
- 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, at room temperature
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 2 egg yolks
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp butter-vanilla extract or plain butter extract, optional but recommended
- 2½ cups all-purpose flour
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets with silicone liners or parchment paper. Set aside.
In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together the butter and sugar until fluffy, about 2 minutes. Beat in the egg yolks, one at a time, and the extracts until blended. Lastly, add in the flour until a soft dough comes together.
Lightly flour a work surface and roll out the dough until it's about 1/4" thick or so, or to desired thickness. Cut using floured cutters and place on the baking sheets. Bake, rotating pans halfway through baking time, for approx. 15-17 minutes, or until cookies are light golden brown. Cool completely, then ice and/or decorate as you desire.
