The Lynn Vance Show

Lynn tried her hand at baking with the help of Biskie. Darran joined in the fun also. Biskie had to keep it simple for Lynn who has said she is not a good cook. We hope you have fun watching this recipe and if it gets hard to follow along we have posted the recipe below.

Quick and easy sugar cookies made with only 3 pantry ingredients and no egg! So simple and foolproof, you can whip up this sugar cookie recipe anytime. Sweet, buttery, and delicious!Prep Time: 10 minsCook Time: 15 minsCool down: 15 minsTotal Time: 40 minsServings: 34 cookies

Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsalted butter , room temperature
  • 2/3 cup + 3 tablespoons granulated sugar , divided
  • 2 cups + 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour , spooned and leveled
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla (optional, but recommended)
  • rainbow sprinkles or nonpareils (optional, but recommended)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • In a medium bowl, using a handheld electric mixer, beat together butter and 2/3 cup sugar until combined. (It will be a little gritty – that’s ok.)
  • Add in flour and blend well (then blend in the vanilla, if using.)
  • Using a cookie scoop, roll the dough into 1-inch balls.
  • Gently roll the balls in the remaining 3 tablespoons of sugar until lightly coated; transfer to the baking sheets 2 inches apart.
  • With the bottom of a measuring cup or glass, press down on the balls to flatten. Sprinkle with some nonpareils (if using) and lightly press down again just so they stick. (The dough should end up being between an 1/8-1/4 inch thick, so 3/16 to be exact. They will look pretty small in circumference, but they will spread a bit to a normal size cookie.)
  • Bake for 14-16 minutes or until just slightly golden around the edges and on the bottom.
  • Remove form the oven and let rest on the baking sheets for at least 10-15 minutes (don’t skip this step!) Then eat or transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.
  • Enjoy!

Notes

This recipe renders a slightly crunchier sugar cookie, but they should not be dry or crumbly. If they are too dry, make sure you  didn’t 1) use too much flour 2) make the balls of dough too small 3) flatten them too much, 4) baked them at 350 instead of 325, or 5) baked them too long.For recipe tips, questions, and storage, please refer to the full article. And watch the video, which is a great visual for how to roll and flatten the cookies.
