  • In a bowl whisk together the flour, salt and baking powder. Set aside.
  • In the bowl of your mixer, add the rest of the ingredients and mix until smooth, I mixed mine about 3 minutes. Add the flour mixture in batches about 1/3 at a time and mix. 
  • Transfer the dough to a big piece of plastic wrap and gently knead it until it forms a ball. Wrap the cookie dough and refrigerate for at least an hour. 
  • Preheat  your oven to 350 degrees. Line a couple baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • I found it easier to cut the dough in 4 pieces and roll out each piece at a time so that it's about 1/4 of an inch in thickness. Cut the cookies with your favorite cookie cutter. 
  • Place the cookies onto the prepared baking sheet and bake for about 9 to 11 minutes, just until the edges are firm and the center still slightly soft. Repeat with remaining dough.
  • Transfer to a rack and cool. If you wish you can sprinkle them with icing sugar.



This recipe will yield about 48 cookies.
I used this sun cookie cutter.
You can refrigerate the dough over night. 
To freeze, place sugar cookies in an airtight container and place in the freezer for up to 3 months.
Please keep in mind that nutritional information is a rough estimate and can vary greatly based on products used.
