World’s Best Sugar Cookies

This past week-end, Ike and I were baking up a storm.


Since blogland is pretty quiet this week, I figured I’d post a few of our favorite holiday recipes.  Mainly because I like having easy access to them.  It pays to blog.

Our very favorite holiday recipe is our sugar cookie recipe.  I know others claim to have the best sugar cookie recipe.  But they are wrong.  Ours is the world’s best.  Which makes me think of Elf. “You did it! Congratulations! World's best cup of coffee! Great job, everybody! It's great to be here.”

But seriously.  Our sugar cookie recipe is the best.  Make it.  Try to prove me wrong.

World’s Best Sugar Cookies

  • 1 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 5 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp. baking poswer
  • 1 tsp. salt

In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until smooth.  Beat in eggs and vanilla.  Stir in the flour, baking powder, and salt.  Cover.  Chill dough for at least one hour (or overnight).  Preheat over to 400.  Roll out dough on lightly floured surface 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick.  Cut into shapes with any cookie cutter.  Place cookies 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheet.  Bake 6-8 minutes in preheated over.  Cool completely.

Frosting for World’s Best Sugar Cookies


  • 2 Tbsp butter (softened)
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • ~1 Tbsp milk (more or less)
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla

World's Best Sugar Cookies

I left out the yellow snowman that Nate made…

Got a sugar cookie recipe to rival ours?  Does your significant other make inappropriate sugar cookies?


  1. My family makes awesome sugar cookies! Here is the recipe:

    We love them because they dont rise a whole bunch & can be easily decorated. And they taste amazing!

  2. Perhaps I will make these! We have a penguin cookie cutter that I've been DYING to use!

  3. These look delicious. I've been on the hunt for a new sugar cookie recipe!
    With Luck

  4. I can barely focus on the cookies because I'm too busy salivating over that backsplash. Yum.

  5. This one:

    They are so big and poofy and wonderful!

  6. I should know by now that I need to eat breakfast before visiting your blog. Now I want cookies for breakfast!!

  7. These sound delicious! I'm definitely going to have to try them out!

  8. Love the idea of blogging things for easy access to them. Do you think anyone would mind if I blogged my shopping list? I think making inappropriate cookies would be the only way to convince Andy to bake.

  9. I lіkе the hеlpful infoгmation you supply in your агticleѕ.
    I ωill boοκmark your weblog and take a look
    at again right here frequеntly. I'm relatively certain I will be told many new stuff right here! Best of luck for the next!

    Feel free to visit my homepage -

  10. I'm impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that's both educative and engаging,
    аnd without a doubt, you hаve hіt the nail on the head.
    The problem is an issue that too few men аnd women
    are ѕpеаking intellіgently
    about. Now i'm very happy I stumbled across this in my hunt for something regarding this.

    Look at my website:
    My page:

  11. Hahah I immediately though of Elf when I read the title! If I allowed my husband near cookie dough, or anything in our kitchen for that matter, I'm sure an inappropriate cookie or two would appear along with some frat-boy style one liner to match.

    Thank for the recipe, you know I'm all for the cookies!

  12. Can't wait to try this! I always want to like sugar cookies but end up disappointed - these sound great. My 2 1/2 year old spotted Ike in the photo and was all "aw look at him mama- I wish I could pet him!" :D

  13. Every time I see a recipe that says, "World's Best...." I have to try it. These are just as good as you said and turned out great, even in high altitude. To read my praise with a link to your blog, check out mine at This recipe is a keeper.

  14. I made sugar cookies that were apparently mother-in-law threw them in the garbage!! =(
    Perhaps I need to pin this!

  15. Yummy! My grandmother's sugar cookie recipe is actually even better. :-) She puts a little lemon extract (or lemon zest, if you've got lemons handy) to give it a bit of a punch. And we always use holiday-colored sugar on top. They're a nonnegotiable part of my Christmas!
