I am on a roll. The Hot Pot cookie craze continues to roll on at my house. (If you don’t know what I’m talking about, look here or here.) This time, I’m featuring easy and delicious Sugar Cookies with simple icing!

Sugar Cookies

I love a good chocolate cookie, but man oh man, depending on the day, I could hurt someone REAL BAD for a bite of a proper chewy, buttery, vanilla-y sugar cookie. I don’t make the cut-out kind very often anymore because it makes such a mess and it’s a little more time consuming than the old scoop and bake method. (Plus, I gave all my cookie cutters away when we moved to NYC.) The sugar cookie bars are a great option if you are looking to mimic the same sort of taste but I wanted a proper cookie STAT.

So off I went into hot pot territory (not the drugs, Mom) and created this recipe, based on my first two posted to the blog earlier in the year. A few corrections and tweaks here and there and several minutes later, I was pulling beautiful, soft, and chewy sugar cookies out of the oven! They cooled while I threw together a simple glaze (an optional step for sure) and then went to town, drizzling away! One dozen stayed classy, and the other dozen looked a little bananas because my kids got ahold of the sprinkles. But both were fantastic and they completely hit the spot. When you haven’t had a proper cookie in a while, it makes it taste even better, methinks.

Tips and Tricks for Perfect Sugar Cookies

  • Recipe Card. I put a lot of details into the recipe card, so take care when reading it through so you don’t miss any steps.
  • Almond Extract. The almond extract is optional (but delicious).
  • Oven Temperature. Take note of the 325 bake time. Keep in mind every oven is different, so my bake time may vary slightly from your bake time. That’s why I gave you a bake time as well as cookie characteristics to look for before removing them from the oven. Not hard, just something you might want to pay attention to 🙂
  • Let the Dough Rest. As the cookie dough rests and cools, the flour will get absorbed. If you let it sit too long, your cookies may not flatten as much as mine did. No problem! Gently flatten the tops of your dough balls before baking. If you notice your cookies are too buttery or too flat, you may need to let your dough cool longer OR add a touch more flour to help with the structure of the cookie.

How to Make Sugar Cookies

This sugar cookie recipe starts out in a pot on the stovetop (I know weird, but trust me it’s all going to work out). Then once the dough is mixed and rests a little bit, you bake it! Cool and drizzle with a simple icing! For the full recipe details, check out the recipe card at the bottom of the post!

  1. Melt butter in a medium-sized pot. Remove from heat. Stir in granulated sugar.
  2. Add in egg, egg yolk, and vanilla. Mix.
  3. Add in the flour, baking soda, and salt. Stir well to ensure a smooth, well-stirred batter.
  4. Preheat oven.
  5. Let batter sit to let the flour soak into the rest of the batter.
  6. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and scoop cookie dough onto prepared pans, using a cookie scoop.
  7. Bake, rotating sheets halfway through baking.
  8. Leave the cookies on the hot baking pans until you can remove them without falling apart. Place onto cooling racks and cool to room temperature before glazing.

Sugar Cookie Icing

For the glaze, whisk powdered sugar together with milk and vanilla until thick glaze forms. Should be the consistency of white school glue; add the milk in slowly! Add in food coloring if desired and then drizzle over cookies.


These Sugar Cookies are best eaten in the first 24 hours after baking; store in airtight containers.


You can freeze the sugar cookie dough so you can make this recipe any time!

Simply mix the dough and freeze in a single layer on a baking sheet. Once completely frozen you can transfer the dough balls to a safe freezer bag. Freeze up to three months.
