Easiest Vintage Sugar Cookie Recipe!

195 grams Plain Flour
1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
110 Grams Unsalted Butter
100 Caster Sugar
1 Egg
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
Pinch of Salt
    • In one bowl, mix together the flour, salt and baking soda.
    • In a second bowl, beat butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. 
    • Add in the egg and vanilla extract along with the flour mixture. Continue to mix until you get a smooth dough
    • Pour your dough into a plastic type bag and refrigerate for around 3 hours. You want the dough to settle so you can work with it.

 

Now the fun part!
Preheat oven at 170c

  • Lightly flour a clean surface and roll out your dough with a rolling pin. Grab your heart shaped cutter, or use a steady hand and cut them puppies out!
  • Place your shaped dough onto parchment paper and refrigerate for 15 mins. This will make sure your dough doesn’t lose its shape when you place it in the oven. 
  • Bake your cookies for around 10 to 15 mins. If you like your cookies quite soft, take them out around the 10 minute mark.
  • Decorate with icing if you please.

Happy Valentine’s Day!!
