Easy Sugar Cookie



1 cup (226g) unsalted butter, softened

1½ cups (285g) granulated sugar

2 large eggs

1 teaspoon (5ml) pure vanilla extract

3 1/2 cups (420g) all-purpose flour

½ teaspoon baking soda

½ teaspoon cream of tartar

½ teaspoon salt

Additional 1/2 cup granulated sugar for finishing



Preheat the oven to 350° F. Line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.

Soften the butter in the microwave for 10-12 seconds. Combine the butter with the sugar and beat on medium speed until well creamed together.

Add the eggs and vanilla extract. Mix into the butter and sugar until the eggs are well beaten.

In a separate bowl, combine the remaining dry ingredients. Slowly add into the dough and beat on medium-low speed until well combined and dough forms.

Use a large cookie scoop and portion the dough. Roll each ball of dough in granulated sugar and then place each one about 2 inches apart.

Bake at 350° F for 10-12 minutes. Allow cookies to cool on the baking sheet for several minutes and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
