Mom's Best Easy Roll Sugar Cookies


One batch of my mom's sugar cookie recipe baked and ready to be decorated. I thought I would share the recipe. It makes a nice thick not too sweet cookie. With the frosted icing adding so much sweetness this is the perfect cut out recipe.

Audrey's Easy Roll Sugar Cookies
4 1/2 c. flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 c. butter
1 1/2 c. sugar
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
3 egg yolks
1/3 c. milk

Measure flour in large bowl & add baking powder and salt stirring to mix and set aside. Cream butter and add sugar gradually and beat until light and fluffy. Add egg yolks and vanilla beating until well blended. Add dry ingredients and milk. Continue beating until well blended. Chill dough wrapped in plastic wrap for at least an hour or overnight.
Roll 1/2 inch thick cut outs and place on greased cookie sheet. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for eight to 10 minutes or until they just start to brown on bottom edges.
After they cool, decorate with icing.

I have always used the Rich Roll cookie recipe from Joy of Cooking, but I'm always on the lookout for good cookie recipes. Thanks!

You are correct...the cookies do not need to be sweet! The icing is sweet enough.

Lori Lynn said...

This is the first rolled out sugar cookie recipe I've seen with milk. (I've read of of recipes per Google). I like a little sweetness to the cookie but the icing gives the right balance. My Q is- does the milk make the dough real sticky? Thanks!

Lisa not at all. I flour the dough for rolling but it works beautifully. This cookie is not too sweet. I like the sweetness to come from the icing. Enjoy!!
