No Chill Sugar Cookies Recipe

I am a huge fan of sugar cookies, but they have to be homemade. I can not eat store bought one for some reason they just don't taste right. So because I only like homemade sugar cookies, I rarely get to have any.

Why is that you may be wondering ( and if not I am still going to tell you anyway) ...

It is because I hate the wait. You make the dough, chill the dough, warm the oven, bake the dough and THEN you can have some cookies. Yeah ... that doesn't work for me. When the craving hits I want them now. Thus, the no chill sugar cookie ...

Ingredients:

2 3/4 cup ... FLOUR
1 1/2 CUP ... SUGAR
1 CUP ... SOFTENED BUTTER (2 sticks)
2 ...LARGE EGGS (room temp)
2 TSP ... CREAM OF TARTER
1 TSP ... BAKING SODA
1 TSP ... VANILLA
1/4 TSP ... SALT
optional .. SPRINKLES

(makes 4 dozen cookies)

Tools:

Cookie Sheet
Parchment Paper
Cookie Scoop

Mixer
2 Mixing bowls
Whisk

Here we go:

1- Preheat oven to 350 f

2 - Combine butter and sugar in mixing bowl (if you have a stand mixer, go to step 4 first and then complete step 3 while it is mixing)



3 - Using a whisk mix flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt into second mixing bowl.

4 - Cream butter and sugar until butter is white and mixture is fluffy.


5 - Add vanilla and one egg at a time mixing well in between each addition.

6 - Continue to mix batter for an additional 2 minutes

7 - In small amounts, add the flour mixture to the batter mixing on low until completely combined.

8 - Line cookie sheet with parchment paper and with cookie scoop, place cookie dough an inch apart on cookie sheet. Add spinkles here if you are chooing to use them.


9 - Bake for 10 to 12 minutes depending on your oven.

10 - Remove from oven and cool cookies on cookie sheet for one minute than on cooling rack until completely cool

A few tips:

** roll cookie dough balls in a mixture of 3 tbsp of sugar and 1 1/2 tbsp of ground cinnamon to make SNICKERDOODLES

**bake cookies one minute less than you think you need to get super soft cookies that will stay soft after they cool


I forgot to take pictures of the finished cookies before the family and I ate them all. Hope you enjoy this recipe.


Ciao

This was an incredibly easy recipe (my favorite kind). The dough was perfect and delicious (yeah, I know I shouldn't be eating raw dough). They cooked up perfectly and the texture and flavor are exactly what we were hoping for with this recipe. Thank you for our new favorite cookie recipe!
