Best Sugar Cookie Recipe EVER

 Every year, millions of people print this best sugar cookie recipe from In Katrina ’s Kitchen. I've been using this recipe for over 25 years and have never failed.

The texture is medium soft, but if you like crispy cookies, you can bake longer. This cookie is my absolute favorite and has been perfected for years for friends and family.


  • 1 Cup unsalted butter, 226 grams
  • 1 Cup granulated white sugar, 200 grams
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups all purpose flour, 360 grams


  1. PREHEAT oven to 350° F.
  2. In the bowl of your mixer, CREAM butter and sugar until smooth, at least 3 minutes
  3. BEAT in extracts and egg.
  4. In a separate bowl, COMBINE baking powder and salt with flour and add a little at a time to the wet ingredients.
  5. IMPORTANT NOTE: If the dough looks crumbly keep mixing for 30 seconds to 1 minute longer. The dough should be pulling away from the sides of the mixer.
  6. If the dough still looks too dry or stiff for your mixer, turn out the dough onto a countertop surface, flour surface as needed. Wet your hands and finish off kneading the dough by hand.
  7. DO NOT CHILL THE DOUGH. Divide into workable batches (2-3 chunks), roll out onto a floured surface, and cut. You want these cookies to be on the thicker side (closer to 1/4 inch rather than 1/8).
  8. Bake at 350 for 6-8 minutes. Let cool on the cookie sheet until firm enough to transfer to a cooling rack.
