Recipe of the Week: Simple Sugar Cookies!!!!

It’s been a long eight weeks folks… yep… eight terribly long weeks since I have featured a “recipe of the week.” Eight weeks since I have had my own kitchen at my disposal. Did I mention it has been eight weeks? ha!

Anyways, for the past two months I have been in a state of moving purgatory; alternating between friends couches, family friends’ apartments and hotels as my “home” and now that I have finally moved into my apartment (which I won’t be leaving for a LOOONNNNGGGG time), I now have access to my very own kitchen, which I have already taken full advantage of.

Since the recipe feature has been absent for a while I have had a lot of time to think about what dish would herald its arrival back to the blog but sadly I have been consumed with apartment stuff, new employment ventures, and this weekends fundraising potluck for God’s Love We Deliver, that I haven’t had any  sort of time to delve deep into my creative imagination and do any elaborate recipe exploration.

So I went with what I had laying in my noggin and now present to you the simplest sugar cookie recipe; it takes no more than 30 minutes from start to finish and will delight you and anyone else who devours them to no end! Like last year, I am making these for the potluck and will be writing “GLWD” over the tops for tomorrow’s party!

Some people think they aren’t bakers… but I am here to prove them wrong… Enjoy!


  • 2 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

To Make:

  • Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees
  • In a small bowl stir flour, baking soda and baking powder together and set aside
  • In a stand mixer cream butter and sugar together until smooth
  • Beat in egg and vanilla and gradually blend in dry ingredients until fully incorporated
  • roll 1 tablespoon of cookie dough into balls and place onto ungreased cookie sheet, 1 inch apart
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown
