Instructions
  1. In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in eggs and extract. Stir in the flour, baking powder, and salt. Cover, and chill dough for at least one hour (or overnight)
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Roll out dough on floured surface 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick. Cut into shapes with any cookie cutter. Place cookies 1 inch apart on parchment lined cookie sheets
  3. Place cookie sheet in freezer for 10 minutes. This helps the cookies not spread and distort the shape when baking
  4. Bake 8 to 10 minutes in preheated oven. Cool completely

  1. Hi Shani, I absolutely love you Mother’s Day Cookies and I ordered everything from your links provided and some of the things will be here today, but others not till Monday and the scribes not till Wednesday. I thought it would all come today so I made the sugar cookies yesterday to chill overnight. And now I really don’t want to bake them until I have all my supplies. Should I freeze them or will the dough be ok refrigerated for 6 days? Please help. And thank you for your wonderful tutorials they are great. Also your recipes.

    • Hi Debbie, I’m so glad you loved the recipe and tutorial! Yes the dough will absolutely be ok in the fridge for even several weeks. Just wrap it well in parchment paper and then a layer of plastic wrap. I usually put it in a ziplock baggie as well. Keeps it from drying out at all. It can also be frozen this way for up to 6 months. That being said, you can also use a toothpick instead of the scribes. They are not as thin and precise but work just fine if you are anxious to get started on your project! Have fun!

  2. Thank you Shani for your quick response. And thank you so much for the lily tutorial I loved it. Can’t wait to try some more of your beautiful work. I will double wrap and put the cookie dough in a vacuum bag until all my supplies get here thank goodness it’s all from Amazon thanks for you links. They sometimes say 3 to 5 days but, with prime it sometimes comes faster. Hopefully so I really can’t wait to try the decorated cookies have mostly just done cakes in the past and still working on improving those skills.

  3. Hi Shani, sorry to bother you again but, my first batch of cookies turned out wonderful. Thank you so much. I was wondering about the recipe I thought you had added cardamon and orange to your cookie recipe but, I couldn’t find the amounts to add to the recipe.

    • Hi Debbie, I’m so glad you cookies turned out good! For my orange spice cookies I add a half teaspoon of orange extract and a teaspoon of ground cardamom. it’s my favorite sugar cookie flavor!

  4. Thank you Shani for everything, those will be my favorite also I am thinking. I love cardamon and orange.

Tell me what you think!
