Sugar Cookies

Enjoy simple sugar cookies to cut out. Made with Pamela’s Baking & Pancake Mix.


    Cream butter and sugar together. Add egg and vanilla and beat together.

    Add Baking & Pancake Mix. Wrap dough with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

    Roll out between two pieces of parchment paper until the dough is 3/8" to 1/4" thick. Cut out cookie shapes and place on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Leave space between the cookies as they will spread. Bake at 350° for approximately 12-15 minutes or until edges are light brown. Let cookies cool slightly and use spatula to remove from cookie sheet. You can also can wrap and freeze dough, then slice and bake in a 350° preheated oven for 14- 17 minutes.

    IDEAS: Use egg white to wet tops of cookies and sprinkle colored sugar crystals on top before baking, or frost cookies with a mixture of powdered sugar, water and food coloring after baking. Please note: brown flecks of almond meal will show in the cookies.

These were delicious. The recipe yield was great—I cut them into small heart shapes with a clean playdough cutter (ha I no longer had my regular cookie heart cutter) and covered them in pink icing for my kid's Valentine's Day party at school. I made the icing from regular sugar, which I threw into a blender to make confectionary sugar, and from a puree. I grabbed a handful of frozen strawberries and half-and-half, blended them together, then mixed them into the confectionary sugar . Voila, strawberry icing, very fresh, also pink! At first I wasn't sure if the cookies would hold together. But when they cooled in the fridge for just a little bit, they held together nicely. They were perfectly chewy in the way you want a sugar cookie to be. I recommend underbaking them a little. Because I cut mine small, I did around 5-7 minutes in the oven. They came out absolutely perfect and chewy that way. I have other sugar cookie recipes, but this is a new favorite. My husband said the icing was one of the best ever too. Definitely recommend that combination!

Add a little avocado/ vegetable oil

I have made this recipe 4 times in the past month because the cookies turn out so good! The dough is a little too crumbly to roll out sugar cookies so I have been adding 1 tsp of avocado oil and they roll out much more smoothly and taste great still.

good news/bad news

When the cookies came out of the oven I told my four year old granddaughter that I had some good news and bad news about the cookies. The good news was that the cookies had expanded and so there was more cookie to eat than when we put them in the oven. The bad news? The shapes were unrecognizable. Guess which part the four year old cared about? Right! They were delicious.

good recipe

Use parchment paper instead of greased cookie sheet. I baked cookies for 10 minutes, then transferred the parchment paper with cookies to cooling rack.


I am very happy with how these cookies turned out. Simple ingredients and the cookies are sturdy. I didn’t change a thing. They do expand more than I expected. For the first batch, I used a biscuit cutter and the cookies were too big. The rest were cut with a shot glass. You can see by my photo the size before and after baking.
