24 Servings
(1 serving = 1 cookie)
  • 275g
    All Purpose Flour
  • 115g
  • 1cup
  • 1/4cup
    Liquid Milk
  • 1piece
  • 1/2tsp

How to make Rolled Sugar Cookies

  1. Sift flour and baking powder into a bowl, then set aside.

  2. Cream margarine, sugar, flavor, and salt together for 3 to 5 minutes until the mixture is well blended.

  3. Add the egg and milk, then mix thoroughly. At this stage, quit using the mixer.

  4. Stir in the dry ingredients (flour and baking powder).

  5. Wash your hands and hand-mix the mixture thoroughly until it forms a pliable dough. If the dough is sticky, add a little flour to make it firm.

  6. Knead the cookie dough very well, then divide it into two, wrap with cling film, place in a bowl, and chill in the fridge (not freezer) for at least 1 hour.

  7. After chilling, place parchment paper on your work surface or sprinkle a little flour directly on your work surface. Roll out the cookie dough to your desired thickness.

  8. Cut the rolled cookie dough into desired shapes and sizes with your cookie cutters. You can sprinkle some sugar on the cookies at this stage (optional).

  9. Transfer the cut cookies onto the cookie sheet tray lined with parchment paper.

  10. Bake in a moderate oven until they are firm to touch. Monitor the baking process and check the cookies frequently to prevent them from getting brown or burnt. Thin sugar cookies bake faster than thick sugar cookies.

Tips & Tricks

  1. If the dough is too sticky, add a little more flour to make it firm.

  2. Chilling the dough helps to make it easier to roll out and cut into shapes.

  3. Monitor the cookies closely while baking to prevent them from burning.
