No Spread Sugar Cookies


These perfect sugar cookies are so easy and with the addition of one ingredient, they become a magical treat.


  • 4 cups flour 480g, sifted
  • 1/3 cup corn starch 40g
  • 3/4 tsp salt 4g
  • 1 cup unsalted butter 227g
  • 1 cup sugar 200g
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract 5mL


  1. Sift your flour, corn starch and salt in a large bowl. Give it a whisk.
  2. In your standing mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream the butter and sugar together.
  3. Add the eggs while mixing. Scrape downsides of the bowl.
  4. Add 1 tsp vanilla extract.
  5. Pour in the flour mixture and mix until everything is well incorporated.
  6. Put the dough in a plastic bag, flatten it together, then chill it in the refrigerator so it firms up.
  7. Once the dough is chilled, place it on a rolling matt, sprinkle with flour and roll out with a rolling pin. Move the dough around so to prevent it from sticking.
  8. Use a circular cookie cutter to cut out your cookies. Take away extra scraps to re-roll for more cookies.
  9. Place them on a non-stick baking sheet and bake at 375F for 12 minutes.
