Vanilla sugar cookies

1 of 1


  • 1.75 cup plain flour
  • 0.5 tsp baking powder
  • 0.5 tsp salt
  • 0.25 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, left at room temperature

  • 0.5 cup granulated sugar for rolling cookies in
  • Skill Level


These are really easy cookies to make, and they will be enjoyed especially by the young-lings :)
  1. In a small bowl combine flour, baking powder, salt and bicarbonate of soda
  2. In a larger bowl cream together the butter, sugar, egg and vanilla until creamy and well combined
  3. Add the dry ingredients from the small bowl to the large bowl, and mix until everything is well incorporated
  4. Using a small ice cream scoop (or a tablespoon if you don't have), form cookie and roll in sugar. Then place on a oiled baking tray (or put baking paper instead of oiling), keeping the cookies a few inches apart
  5. Bake for between 15-20 minutes, rotating the baking tray half way
  6. When you remove the cookies, leave them to cool for around 5 minutes, and if you can resist temptation, leave them to cool completely before digging in :)

Although the picture isn't the best to make you think these are tasty, lol, the batch shown were made without ever thinking they would go on a blog, hence not perfectly done. Although, when you do make them make sure to not leave them too long in the oven. You will see on close observation they will have a sugar coating, which goes really well with the soft vanilla cookie interior. Do give these a go, and I can guarantee most kids will love them (my little sister sure does) :)
