How To Make Sugar Cookies Cutouts

Making and cutting these sugar cookies is a great way to spend the holidays with the kids making something delicious that you can also give as presents.

Preparation: 30 minutes
Cooking: 30 minutes
Total: 1 hour



  • 4cupsall-purpose flour,sifted
  • 1tspbaking powder
  • ½tspsalt
  • 1cupunsalted butter
  • 2cupssugar,granulated
  • 2largeeggs
  • 2tspvanilla extract


  1. Sift flour, baking powder, and salt into a bowl. Put butter and sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix on medium speed until pale and fluffy. Mix in eggs and vanilla. Reduce speed to low.

  2. Gradually mix in flour mixture. Divide dough in half; flatten each half into a disk. Wrap each in plastic. Refrigerate until firm for at least 1 hour or overnight.

  3. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F with racks in upper and lower thirds. Let one disk of dough stand at room temperature just until soft enough to roll. This will take about 10 minutes.

  4. Roll out dough on a lightly floured work surface to just under ¼-inch thick, adding more flour as needed to keep dough from sticking.

  5. Cut out cookies with a 4-to-5-inch cookie cutter, transferring shapes to parchment paper-lined baking sheets. Roll out scraps, and repeat. Repeat with remaining disk of dough. Chill cookies in freezer until very firm, for about 15 minutes.

  6. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes, switching positions of sheets and rotating halfway through, until edges turn golden. Let cool on sheets on wire racks. Decorate as desired.
