Rolled Sugar Cookie Recipe

We have some amazingly talented people on our crew. During our company potlucks and celebrations, everyone always looks forward to Lisa’s picture-perfect frosted sugar cookies. Lisa has been with Haggen since 1992 and over the last 20 years she has worked with the bakeries of our Meridian and Barkley stores (learning her cake decorating skills on the job!) and moved into Human Resources in 1997. A talented baker in her own right, Lisa says she has “been baking at home since I was a kid with my Aunt Marta, but decorating since the mid-90s thanks to Haggen.”

Rolled Sugar Cookies

Ingredients

  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) butter, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup shortening
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder

Directions

In one bowl cream butter, shortening, sugar, eggs and vanilla together. In a separate bowl mix flour, salt and baking powder. Slowly add dry ingredients to wet ingredients until well blended. Scrape down bowl and turn dough out onto plastic wrap to form loaf approximately 4″ x 12″ x 1.”
Chill dough for several hours until firm…overnight, time permitting.

Roll dough on floured surface no less than 1/4″ thick. Cut out shapes. Re-form dough from scraps and continue to roll and cut until all dough is gone.

Bake at 375° for 6–7 minutes, or until lightly browned at edges.

Helpful Tips

  • Mix dough in a stand mixer. It creams and blends ingredients easier than a hand mixer.
  • Make sure to use enough flour so that dough rolls out at a consistent thickness.
  • Use air-bake cookie sheets.

Buttercream Frosting

Ingredients

  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) butter, room temperature
  • 1 lb. box powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Directions

Mix all ingredients slowly at first, then increase speed until creamy. Add coloring and flavoring as desired.

Helpful Tips

  • Tint frosting using gel paste for bolder colors. Liquid food coloring just waters down the frosting.
  • Change frosting flavor by adding different extracts like almond or peppermint.
  • Add sprinkles before the frosting sets.
