I love sugar cookies, but I can’t stand having to wait for them to chill before cutting and baking them. That’s where this recipe is a lifesaver! Make your dough, cut, bake, and frost your cookies, and you’re done!
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 t. vanilla
2 t. baking powder
3 cups flour
1/2 cup butter, melted
2 T. vanilla
1/2 bag powdered sugar
First, cream your butter and sugar together.
Beat in the egg, vanilla, and baking powder.
Sift in the flour one cup at a time and mix between each addition.
Take half of the dough and roll it out on a layer of waxed paper.
Dip your cookie cutters in flour before using.
Place cookies on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 375* for 5 minutes. Pull out, turn around, and bake for another 2 minutes.
It’s always best to have some little helpers around!
Meanwhile, make your frosting. Melt butter and add vanilla.
Then add powdered sugar and milk. Don’t get it too thin!
If you want, you can always divide it into bowls and use different colors. After your cookies have cooled, frost ’em!
Store in air-tight containers at room temperature.

- 1 cup butter, softened
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 t. vanilla
- 2 t. baking powder
- 3 cups flour
- 1/2 cup butter, melted
- 2 T. vanilla
- 1/2 bag powdered sugar
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- Start by creaming the butter and sugar together.
- Beat in the egg, vanilla, and baking powder.
- Mixing between each addition, sift in the flour, one cup at a time.
- Now, divide the dough into two halves, and roll out one half at a time on a layer of waxed paper. (I like mine rolled out about 3/8 of an inch thick, but you can do whatever thickness you want!)
- Grab your cookie cutters and dip them in flour. Cut out your shapes and place on an ungreased cookie sheet.
- Bake for 5 minutes, pull out, turn around, and bake for another 2 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
- While cookies are cooling, make the frosting by combining the melted butter and vanilla.
- Add the powdered sugar and milk.
- If you want, divide frosting into different bowls and add some food coloring!
- Frost your cookies, let them set for about 15 minutes for the frosting to set up and store in an air-tight container.
