Easy Slice and Bake Sugar Cookie Recipe

Makes: 18 cookies

Calories per serving: 77

Fat per serving: 3g

Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup (½ stick) unsalted butter, softened
  • ⅔ cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, and salt. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the butter and sugar until blended. Add the egg and vanilla and mix until smooth. Add the flour and mix until just combined. Shape the dough into a 6-inch-long log, about 2 inches in diameter, and place it on a sheet of wax paper. Roll the dough in the wax paper, twisting the edges to seal it. Freeze until firm, at least 3 hours, and up to 3 months.
  2. To bake, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet to parchment paper. Remove the dough from the freezer and use a sharp knife or uncoated dental floss to slice the dough into ⅓-inch-thick rounds. Place on the prepared baking sheet, 1 inch apart, and bake until puffed and faintly golden, about 10 minutes.

    This sounds like a great recipe to try! My holiday bake-a-thon starts this Saturday and I think this one may have to be added to the menu ;)

    My absolute favorite recipe to make and gift is for what we call “Kissy Cookies”, aka “Peanut Butter Blossoms” on some recipe sites/cards. The rich taste of actual peanut butter in the cookie part, paired with a slightly melted Hershey kiss can’t be beat! Everyone always requests I make these at the holidays.

    Hey Andie! By the way, I love you. I feel like we are kindred spirits. I’ve been reading you for years but this is my first time commenting!

    (I lost 175 pounds all own my own, the old-fashioned way AND I love to cook (and eat) so that’s why I feel like we’re kindred spirits, just to clarify!)

    My favorite thing to “bake” this time of year is SOUTHERN SALTINE TOFFEE!!. It’s super easy (almost TOO easy!).

    40 saltines crackers (arrange them in lines/rows using a FOIL-LINED jellyroll pan. Trust me, you will thank me for the foil-lined tip for it makes it SUPER easy when you go to break the toffee into pieces and it also saves you from need to scrub the pan afterwards which equals more time to eat said toffee!)
    2 sticks of unsalted butter (I like the European style butter)
    1 cup of brown sugar (I’ve actually made this in a lower-sugar format using 1/2 C Splenda-Brown Sugar, tastes just as sweet, but less sugar)
    1 bag of chocolate chips (Again, for my lower-sugar version I’ve used the Hershey’s Sugar Free chips.)You could use any type of baking chip you want! White Chocolate would be sinful!!

    Bring brown sugar and butter to a slow rolling boil and let it come to a rich caramel color.
    Pour over the saltines and take in the wonderful aroma while you are at it! (Ahh, what a wonderful candle scent that would make- Butter and Brown Sugar Scented Candles!!)
    Use an off-set spatula to spread it out.
    CAREFULLY transfer into a 400 degree pre-heated oven and bake for a mere 6 minutes.
    CAREFULLY, again, remove from oven and immediately pour baking chips over the HOT caramel butter sugar goo! ;)
    Allow the chips to melt for a minute or so and using that same handy-dandy off-set spatula spread out the chocolate until it completely covers the caramel/toffee.

    For an optional topping, you can sprinkle chopped pecans or even festive-colored candy-coated chocolate (cough, M&Ms, cough) because a little extra chocolate never hurt anyone, right!?

    Place pan in refrigerator for at least an hour to help the chocolate set.

    Be patient. Go and do some online shopping and fill virtual shopping carts with stuff you’ll never end up buying ;) or call an old friend to chat.

    Remove the pan and carefully remove the toffee from the foil and then break toffee into nicely shaped pieces.

    SHARE IMMEDIATELY or you will want to eat the entire pan, Trust me Andie. Trust me. :)

    MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

      WHOA I LOVE THESE! I made a suuuper similar recipe a few weeks ago for Daniel’s family’s Hannukah party and I swear everyone went nuts. I’ve been making it for a couple years and it’s just like your recipe (it’s from Leite’s Culinaria, called “Cashew Caramel Cracker Bars”), only the caramel is slightly different. Now I need to try your version!!

    Love love!! Slice and bake cookies: the world cannot have enough of them I say. Same with sugar cookies around the holiday season.

    Okay so my absolute favorite holiday cookie lately is rugelach. Specifically, the NUTELLA rugelach that I found on Michelle/Hummingbird High’s site! It’s so freaking good–uber flaky and full of layers no matter what you do to the dough, sweet and salty, glazed tops, melty fillings…ugh. And it’s actually simpler than I think most people credit rugelach as being–the dough is super easy and I think the rolling out part is fun!

      OH my gosh I love this idea! Add Nutella to anything and I’ll love it :)
      I’m so glad you said rugelach aren’t as hard as they seem. I’ve always thought they looked like a challenge!
