Homemade Sugar Cookie Recipe…

Sweater: Club Monaco

Happy Friday, everyone!! A couple weeks ago my sister Emily and I got together to bake our favorite sugar cookies (and let’s be honest, we bake these cookies ALL the time! If you follow me on Instagram then you’ve probably seen me post about them before). I’ve tried SO many different recipes but none of them come close to this one. This is my family’s all-time favorite homemade sugar cookie recipe!!!!! We plan to bake them next week for Halloween so if you’re needing some yummy treats for the weekend, try this recipe and let me know what you think!!

Sugar Cookie Recipe:

2 cups butter

6 eggs

2 cups sugar

2 teaspoon vanilla

2 teaspoon almond extract

6 teaspoon baking powder

7 cups flour

Mix wet ingredients with sugar then slowly add baking powder and flour. Mix well (I love to use this Bosch mixer). Refrigerate dough for 30 minutes. Bake for 7 minutes at 375.  (In my oven I only cook them for 6 minutes. I like them to be extra soft!!).

Cream Cheese Frosting Recipe:

1 pound cream cheese

3/4 pound unsalted butter at room temperature

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/2 teaspoon almond extract

1 1/2 pounds powdered sugar

Thanks for stopping by!! Have a great weekend!

  1. Hi Rachel!
    I’m over from Grace + Beauty. How tall is the model fir your clothing linE? I’m 5’8 and find it hard to buy a dress just brlow my knees. I find this length to be elegant and stylish aka Kate Middleton.
    Such cute children. I used to make cookies with my liTtle ones so it brings back great memories.

  2. i made these for work last week because I remembered a post you did for valentines day. everyone loved how light and fluffy they were! thanks for sharing!!

  3. Is the butter softened or melted and also it says 1lb of creaM cheese frosting…do you mean 1lb of cream cheese? Looks DELICIOUS….cant wsit to bake some

    1. Sorry for the confusion, 1 pound cream cheese! And the butter is just a room temperature. Let me know if you have any other questions!

      xo, Rach

  4. Is this The kitchen in your parent’s house? It is so stunning!!! Love the Framed prints on the wall, the window coverings, and just that there’s a bIt more personality and colour Throughout. Pretty please dedicate a post to this space!

  5. Dear Rach,
    Thank you for another recipe and for the lovely photos.
    I feel so comfortable whEn the cookies in the oven start to smell around the house!
    P.S.: I tried your mac & cheese yesterday for our dinner and it’s easy,creamy and so delicious.Thank you :)

  6. I’m confused. Do YOU actually buy the pre-made cream CHEESE icing in the baking aisle and add stuff to it, or is that a typo ANd it’s just a pound of cream cheese? Thanks. :)

  7. HI RACHEL,

    THANK YOU SO MUCH! CANT WAIT TO SEE YOUR CHRISTMAS AND VALENTINE’S DAY SUGAR COOKIE POSTS!

  8. I’m definitely going to try this recipe out! Thanks for sharing! I’ve got a few questions that maybe sometime you can advice me on but, what does your skincare routine look like? How do you achieve such a beautiful and flawless complexion? You always look so put together and gorgeous I just thought I would ask ;)
    Also, what does your blogging schedule look like. I’m really interested in knowing how you organizeyourself with photo shoots and posting. Like, do you have a week’s worth of posts ready in advance? Di you do your outfit photo shoots on the weekend and then just post them? Okay, I’m so sorry.I could keep on asking too many questions :)
    Oh my goodness it would be a dream to meet you someday <3

    Love + hugs,
    raquel ♥

  9. We love making sugar cookies! Especially during the holidays. I tried a new vegan sugar cookie recipe last year and they turned out so good that I just had to share them on my blog. I love cutting them into snowflakes, wrapping them, and giving them as little gifts during the holidays.
