Easy Christmas Sugar Cookies

Easiest Sugar Cookie Recipe Ever

December just wouldn’t feel right with a plate piled high with sugar cookies and these are this recipe is the easiest to bake and frost!


  • 1 cup 2 sticks butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract
  • 2 3/4 all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp salt


  • Preheat over to 350. Spray a cookie mold pan with vegetable pan spray. NOTE: I used a cookie mold pan for this recipe, which is much easier than cutting out cookie shapes. You can also roll out and cut these out, or just drop the cookies into balls on a baking sheet.
  • Beat butter and sugar in large bowl with electric mixer at medium speed until blended. Beat in the egg and extracts, mixing well.
  • Combine flour and salt, adding the flour a little at a time while mixing.
  • Press into cookie molds about 2/3 fulls and baked for around 5-7 minutes, just before cookies start to brown.
  • Let cool in cookie mold pan for 10 minutes before turning over and popping out. Continue to cool on wire rack.
  • Decorate and enjoy!
