Easy frosted sugar cookies

Easy frosted sugar cookies

These are part 2 of my work treats for tomorrow – frosted sugar cookies. They are so easy to make. They are soft and sweet and have the perfect sugar cookie frosting. I did not cut them out. Just scooped out some dough and flattened to about 1/2 inch.

Remember to scoop your flour from your flour bag into your measuring cup so you get the right amount. And, preheat your oven to 375 degrees for 20 minutes so it cycles to the right temp.

No need to be fancy with the frosting
  • Ingredients
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder

Directions – preheat oven to 375 degrees for 20 minutes. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or nonstick baking liners. cream butter and sugar. Add egg and vanilla. Fold in dry ingredients. Scoop out 1/4 cups of dough, roll into balls and flatten to 1/2 inch thick. Bake 8 to 10 minutes (there will be no golden spots on top). Cool completely.
