Recipe for Big and Soft Sugar Cookies


Everyone loves giant soft sugar cookies, especially when they’re frosted with buttery frosting. This recipe makes very tender soft cookies that aren’t overly sweet; the frosting adds the sweetness.

Since these Big and Soft Sugar Cookies are cut into giant rounds, they are quick to make. The soft texture comes from the addition of buttermilk; the great flavor comes from using half real butter.
””









Decorating is also quick and easy. Before baking, sprinkle with colored sugar or sprinkles. ””
















If you’d rather frost the cookies, prepare Basic Uncooked Buttercream Frosting, tint it if necessary, and spread a quick dab over the top of each cookie, then add colored sugar or sprinkles (readily available at grocery, craft, and specialty stores). Canned frosting can even be used in a pinch. ””

Big and Soft Sugar Cookies


Makes about 4 dozen 4” round cookies

6 cups flour (about)
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 cups granulated sugar
3/4 cup butter
3/4 cup shortening
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup buttermilk, or sour milk (1 teaspoon vinegar added to regular milk)
3 eggs, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla
  1. Preheat oven to 350°.

  2. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or spray them with non-stick spray.

  3. In a medium bowl, stir together 4 cups flour, baking powder, nutmeg, salt, and sugar.

  4. Cut in the butter and shortening into the dry ingredients until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

  5. Stir in baking soda, buttermilk, beaten eggs, and vanilla.

  6. Stir as little as possible, and add the remaining flour as necessary to make dough thick enough to roll out.

  7. Roll out dough to 1/4 inch thick on a lightly floured surface.

  8. Cut into rounds with a 4” cutter or into desired shapes, and place 1 inch apart on the prepared baking sheets.

  9. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until the edges are lightly browned.
