Ever wanted a sugar cookie that is easy to make and doesn't spread? Look no further! This is the one you've been looking for! These cookies keep their shape and are perfect for decorating Christmas cookies, easter cookies or any cookie!

30 cookies





  • 120g (1 cup) unsalted butter, softened

  • 230g (1 ¼ cups) caster sugar

  • 1 large egg

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • 380g (2 cups) all-purpose flour

  • ½ tsp salt

  • 2 tbs milk



Add cream, butter and sugar to a large bowl. Use an electric hand mixer to whip until light and fluffy.


Add eggs and mix until well combined.


Sift in the flour and salt and use a spatula to mix together until a dough forms. Split the dough into two and wrap in plastic. Chill for 30 minutes.


Preheat oven to 180C° (356F°).


Place a large piece of baking paper on your workbench. Add one half of the dough to it. Place another large piece of baking paper on top and use a rolling pin to roll out to ½ cm (.2 inches). Cut out cookies using desired cookie cutter shape. Place on a baking tray lined with baking paper about 5cm (2 inches) apart.


Bake the cookies for 10 minutes or until edges are lightly golden. Allow to cool before serving or decorating.


These cookies can be kept in an airtight container for up to 7 days. Decorated or not decorated.
