Sugar Cookies

Really simple cookies to make with even the smallest of children.



125g/4.5oz unsalted butter

125g/4.5oz caster sugar

1 medium egg, lightly beaten

1 tsp vanilla extract

250g/9oz plain flour


Preparation Time
20 minutes


Cooking Instructions

In a large bowl cream together the butter and sugar using a hand whisk or an electric beater until light and fluffy.

Add in the beaten egg and vanilla extract and continue to mix until combined

Gradually add the sifted flour and fold in.

Knead the dough until combined and smooth in texture. Wrap in cling film and allow to rest in the fridge for about half an hour.

Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas mark 4.

Remove the dough from the fridge and roll on a floured surface to a thickness of approximately 5mm.

Cut out shapes using whatever cookie cutters you have – even an upturned cup or glass will serve the purpose if you don’t have any cutters!

Lay the shapes on a greased baking sheet and cook in the centre of the preheated oven for 10-15 minutes until lightly golden.

Allow to cool thoroughly on a wire rack before decorating with icing, sprinkles, sweets or whatever you like!


18-20 cookies
