Sugar Cookies
Extra Fine Granulated Sugar
Prep time :
Bake/Cook time :
Yield :
up to 36 cookies depending on size


  • 1 1/2 cups Dixie Crystals Extra Fine Granulated Sugar
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, very soft
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour*
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar

*Spoon & Sweep method: Use a spoon to fill measuring cup with flour until required amount is obtained. Scooping measuring cup directly into flour bag will firmly pack flour resulting in too much flour required for recipe.


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Beat butter until very light and creamy. Add sugar and continue mixing until light and fluffy. Add egg, vanilla and salt and beat until very well combined.
  3. Sift flour, baking soda and cream of tartar together and add in one step to above. Mix until dough forms. Do not overmix.
  4. Scoop batter into two tablespoon amounts and make round. Place well apart on parchment lined or evenly buttered cookie sheets. Sprinkle with additional sugar if desired. Dough can also be rolled for cutout cookies. Roll dough on evenly sugared kitchen towel 1/4 inch thick. Cut into shapes and place on parchment or lightly buttered cookie sheets.
  5. Place in oven and bake until very pale and edges are very light golden, about 9 minutes.
  6. Decorate with frosting or icing as desired. Makes about 36 cookies.


Cook’s Tip: For firmer dough wrap tightly in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
