Sugar cookies

I have really been craving sugar cookies lately then last night there was a post on my cooking board about them. It must be fate, right? ;) So tonight I pulled out my favorite recipe. It's pretty simple and always reliable.

Ava's Sugar Cookies
Recipe courtesy of Ava

1 1/4 cups sugar
1 cup butter flavored Crisco (you can sub regular butter if you like)
2 eggs
1/4 cup light corn syrup
1 tbsp vanilla
3 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine sugar and Criso in a large bowl (I use my standing mixer)beating at medium speed. Add eggs, syrup and vanilla. Beat well. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add gradually to the creamed mixture at low speed. Divide dough into quarters and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Sprinkle 1/4 of dough with flour and roll out onto floured surgacte to 1/4" thickness. Cut out with floured cutters (I used my pampered chef medium scoop, which is why they look like ice cream in the picture). Place 2" apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 5-9 minutes. Don't overbake. Cool 2 minutes and frost.


  1. Oh my goodness those cookies look to-die-for yummy! I could go for a couple of thos right now... :)

  2. These look wonderful - I love the shape too, I'll have to try using a scoop sometime.
