No-chill Cutout Sugar Cookies

No-chill Cutout Sugar Cookies	Opens photo in lightbox. Hit Escape or X to exit lightbox.

This is a nice sugar cookie which doesn't require that you chill the dough before you roll it out. We recommend you roll it out between two sheets of waxed paper to prevent sticking.

Makes about 24

1 cup butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 teaspoons baking powder
3 cups all-purpose flour

Preheat oven to 375F. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar with an electric mixer. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Add baking powder and flour one cup at a time, mixing after each addition. Dough will be stiff. Do not chill dough. Divide dough in half. Roll each half about 1/8 inch thick. Dip cutters into flour before each use. Bake cookies on ungreased cookie sheet on middle rack of oven for 8-12 minutes, or until cookies are lightly browned.

Would make this again.
I anm totally switching from my old recipe to this one! I had to add some water to my dough because I think I had too much flour, but they dough was perfect afterwards! Not to sticky to roll, the cut outs came out perfectly beautiful! And they taste great!!!! 5 stars

These cookies are great for kids and pretty tasty for adults. I have made them many times for many different occasions. I always add and extra egg and the dough is easy to work with. Cookies always keep perfect shape. I have also substituted 1/4 of the flour with cocoa powder to make chocolate sugar cookies on occasion. 5 stars

I have made these cookies for years and years. I have never had any difficulty with the dough. Remember it is no chill. I make them and give them as gifts, holiday cookie exchanges. Everyone loves them and always ask for the recipe when they find out the cookies are a no chill dough. I also decorate with royal icing. 5 stars

Would not make this again.
They were OK sugar cookies. I followed the recipe to a tee and they came out pretty bland, but were just fine with some icing. Would pass up this recipe to try another next time. 3 stars
