Bakery Style Sugar Cookies with Buttercream Frosting

These were delicious!  I ate way too many.  It also made a lot, like 7 dozen or more, I lost count.  And they were also pretty easy to make.


2 cups butter, softened

2 1/4 cups sugar

4 eggs

1 cup milk

7 cups flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon baking powder

2 teaspoons vanilla or almond extract

1/2 teaspoon salt

1  Cream together butter and sugar until fluffy.  Add eggs, then milk and mix well.

2  Stir in remaining ingredients.  Dough will be soft and sticky but should pull away from sides of bowl,  add more flour if needed until it does.

3  Roll out dough on floured surface about 1/2″ thick.  Cut out as desired and place on parchment paper or silicone mat lined cookie sheets.

4  Bake at 325 for 14 minutes or just until edges are starting to change color.  Cool completely before frosting.


1 cup butter, softened

1 teaspoon vanilla

3 tablespoons milk

2 cups powdered sugar

pinch of salt

food coloring, if desired

Beat butter until smooth then add vanilla and milk and beat until well incorporated.  Add salt then start adding powdered sugar until desired consistency is reached.  Frost cookies.
