cut out sugar cookies

Soft and chewy sugar cookies with icing and sprinkles! Incredibly delicious cookies that your friends and family will love.




  1. To make the cookies, mix the softened butter until smooth.
  2. Add the sugar and vanilla extract and mix for 1-2 minutes.
  3. Add the egg, all-purposeĀ flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix until well combined.
  4. Wrap the dough with plastic and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  5. Once the cookie dough is chilled, Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  6. Roll out the dough using a rolling pin and a sprinkling of flour.
  7. Cut out the cookies and place them on a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  8. Bake for 10 minutes.
  9. To make the icing, whisk the powdered sugar, corn syrup, and water.
  10. Make sure the cookies are completely cooled before icing.


For firm cookies with crispy edges bake for 12-15 minutes.

If you want to frost the entire batch of cookies, I suggest tripling the icing recipe.
