Chewy Sugar Cookies Recipe

Sugar Cookies are one of my very favorite cookies in the entire world. Seriously. They are truly one of the most perfect cookies ever. I thought it would be fun to share my favorite chewy Sugar Cookie Recipe during my 12 Days of Cookies series this year.

Because, as much as I love them throughout the year, at Christmas, I am always drawn to them.

This simple sugar cookie recipe is easy to make and everyone always loves them.

Maybe it is because these sugar cookies are different from the rolled sugar cookie recipe we also love throughout the holidays. Those can seem a bit daunting at times while this chewy version of the sugar cookie comes together quickly and is just one of those perfect cookies you enjoy eating!

 

For this sugar cookie recipe, I scoop the dough, roll it into a ball and then roll it into a bit of granulated sugar for a sparkly touch that lends a crisp little coating on the cookie once it is baked. While you can certainly skip that little step, I highly recommend that you not. It is so very much worth it.

Serves: 36 cookies
Ingredients
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
  • 1½ cups granulated sugar

  • 2¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar for rolling cookies
Instructions

  3. Stir in flour, baking powder, salt, and vanilla.
  4. Scoop cookie dough by the tablespoon full and roll into a ball.
  5. Add granulated sugar to a large bowl for rolling cookie dough in before baking. Place each ball of cookie dough into the bowl of granulated sugar and roll to coat well.

    Please Help:

    I’ve made cookies with this same recipe about four times and only made a perfect batch once.

    Meaning I’ve only made it to where I could roll the cookie dough into a ball once.

    I don’t understand what I did wrong the other times when I follow the instructions step by step and couldn’t roll the cookies. I help my friend make the cookies the same way as the instructions and the same thing happened.

    If you can tell me where I might have made a mistake I’d really appreciate it.
