Default Fav sugar cookie recipe?

We made these this weekend after some trial and error... The first cooked batch showed how off the recipe was as the butter content was too high and they spread apart and fell apart into crumbs... I added a bunch of flour and they worked out, but I am not sure how much... DH loves sugar cookies, but likes them to be thick and on the soft side once baked. Thoughts?

I will be watching this thread with interest. I gave up on sugar cookies because they either didn't turn out, or didn't taste very good.
Decorating them is so much fun, even if I am just watching the kids do it

I usually use my sugar cookie recipe as a means to another end. I add things like chocolate chips, or chocolate syrup. Once I added apple chips and caramels.

Yum! I hope someone posts a scrumpdillyitious recipe.

I found one a couple years ago that called for cream cheese. It wasn't as good as I expected, but still better than some.

Well, here's the recipe that I use. I don't know where it ever came from. I've been using it for more than twenty years.

Cream together 2 C sugar and 2 C butter.
Add 4 eggs and 1 tsp vanilla
Blend in 5 C flour, 1 tsp salt and 1 tbsp baking powder

If dough is stiff, add 1 tbsp milk

Divide dough into 4 equal portions. Roll out to 1/4 inch thick, cut cookies, sprinkle with sugar and bake at 300 degrees for 8-10 minutes. Cool on a rack before storing.

This recipe can be divided.

Hope you like it. These are pretty easy to make.

My old sugar cookie recipe quit working on me. Well, the last couple of times I made it, they just didn't turn out as well as they used to. Not sure if it was me, the weather, my oven, or what. It was always my standby though!! I'm waiting on a delivery guy to show up, but I'll try to get it posted. There's also Martha Stewart's sugar cookie recipe. I've had that bookmarked for a couple of years to try, lol.

I did not make roll sugar cookies in looong time. Last few years when ever I am asked to make sugar cookies I make drop cookies.

You could also make my recipe a drop cookie recipe. It works either way. I roll them out at Christmastime, so that I can make cutouts.

Alrighty. Here's the recipe I'm going to stick with. I tweaked it a little here and there and I'm really happy with the way they turned out. All of the kids liked them - even without sugar or frosting on top!

So here's the goodest () recipe I've used so far. The original isn't mine, just the tweaked version.

Cream Cheese Sugar Cookies -

1.5 cups sugar
1 cup unsalted butter
8 oz. Philadelphia Cream Cheese
1 egg
3/4 teasp. salt
1 teasp. pure vanilla extract
1/2 teasp. baking powder
3 cups flour

Mix the sugar, butter, cream cheese, egg and extracts together until it's nice 'n fluffy. Add the other ingredients and mix well. If it's too soft, you can add a little more flower.

Drop all the dough onto a piece of plastic wrap and form it into a roll. Wrap the plastic around it and pop it in the refrigerator over night or for a couple days.

You can roll them out or make drop cookies or however you want to make them.

Bake at 375° for 7-10 minutes. Bake time really depends on how thick you make them. Pull them out of the oven when they're just barely starting to get golden around the edges.
