{RECIPE} The Perfect Chewy Sugar Cookie Recipe!

This is the go-to cookie recipe in our house because it is so quick and easy to put together, and it tastes great! It's also a versatile cookie.

You can top it with green and red sprinkles (like we did for our Cookies and Cocoa party), or sprinkle on some cinnamon and sugar and you'll have a great snickerdoodle. You could also roll it in some pink sanding sugar and have something pretty that would work great at a tea party. And if you ever just want some cookie dough, this hits the spot.



  • 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup  butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Bake at 350F  for 8-10 minutes


Add the flour, salt, and baking powder  into a bowl, mix, and set aside.

In another bowl, add the softened (room temperature) butter, eggs. sugar, and vanilla. Beat with an electric mixer until smooth -- ab0ut a minute.

In three or four batches, add the dry ingredients to the wet, mixing until incorporated.

Lainey's favorite part.

Roll them into one inch balls or roll the dough out using a rolling pin and cut out shapes using a cookie cutter. Top them with sprinkles, sanding sugar, cinnamon and sugar, or anything else you can think of. Place on a Silpat.

Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes. I take them out when there just starts to be the slightest hint of browning along the bottom.

And here's what you get... Soft, chewy, and sweet cookies with a touch of salt. I'm warning you, you will not be able to eat just one.

I love this recipe!! I needed it to make sugar cookies for m family's Christmas party. I put the dough in the fridge for an hour before rolling them out and cutting them into fun shapes. Delicious!

These are soft and puffy, my daughter loved helping with the sprinkles! They are so good especially accompanied with a cup of coffee. :) 5stars

How do you get the sprinkles on top to stick?
