Old Fashioned Sugar Cookie Recipe

Lately I’ve been reminiscing about the warm sugar cookies by Grandma would pull out of the oven, after we spent our time in the kitchen laughing and mixing them up. Those were some great times filled with great memories. My grandmother passed from this earth without passing along her recipe. Actually, she never actually baked from a recipe though either.

Anyways, long story short. I scoured the internet for the PERFECT sugar cookie recipe to remind me of my grandmother. This comes pretty darn close if I do say so myself. Happy Baking!! May you make many great memories with your loved ones baking alongside them, like I did my own grandmother.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon of grated orange rind
  • 2 cups  of all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 2-3 tablespoons of milk

Baking Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cream butter and sugar in a mixing bowl until the texture is light and fluffy. Add egg; beat until blended. Mix in vanilla and orange rind. Add sifted mixture of flour, salt and baking powder alternately with milk; mix well. Chill dough until firm. Roll dough to 1/8 inch thickness on a floured surface. Cut the dough with a 4-5 inch cookie cutter. Arrange cookies on a 12 x 18 inch greased cookie sheet. Sprinkle with additional sugar. Bake at 375 degrees for 12 minutes.

This recipe yields 18 cookies.
