Refrigerated cutout sugar cookie

Today I decided to try yet a other recipe for sugar cookie but this time the cookie dough needed to be refrigerated for at least 4 hours and I thought since I had the time why not give it a try.  I am so happy that I did because the cookie was soft and it held up its shape while baking.  The taste of the cookie was amazing.

3 cup four
1 tsp baking powder
1 cup sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla essence
2 stick butter
1 egg

Option..can also add lemon or orange zest to the dough


In a small bowl whisk egg and essence, Set aside

Cream butter and sugar. The creamed butter should be light and fluffy.  Add egg mixture and mix well.  Beat for about 1 minute.

In another bowl, sift dry ingredients.

Gradually add flour mixture into the butter in 3 additions.  Scrape the dough into a large bowl and knead with your hands till everything is combined,  Bind dough together and make into a disk.  Wrap the dough in a plastic and refrigerate overnight or at least 4 hours.

Divide cookie dough in half.  Roll one half of the cookie dough into about 1/4 inch thick.

Cut out as many cookies as you can.  Place the cookies on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.  Chill the cutout in the fridge for about 10 minutes.

Bake for 8 minutes depending on your preference.

Let the cookies cook on the baking sheet and then transfer to cooling rack.

Store in airtight container for up to 2 to 3 weeks or freeze undecorated cookies between pieces of wax paper in a large container.

Decorate as desired with royal icing.
