How to Make Perfectly Soft Sugar Cookies | The Stay At Home Chef


Today on The Stay at Home Chef I’m showing you how to make Perfectly Soft Cream Cheese Sugar Cookies These cookies are soft and chewy and absolutely perfect! They are everything that I want in a sugar
cookie. They start with 1 cup of softened salted butter We’re going to go ahead and put that into a stand mixer however you don’t have
to use a stand mixer. You could also use a bowl with a hand mixer. To that we’re going to add in 1/4 cup of softened cream cheese and 1 1/4 cups of white granulated sugar Then we’re going to get this mixing. Beat this until everything is creamed together. Next we’re going to add in 2 tablespoons of
corn syrup This will make our cookies nice and chewy. Pour this on into the bowl and I’m using a
little rubber spatula to scrape it all out. Then you’ll also need 1 egg 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract and 1/4 teaspoon of almond extract Then we’ll mix this in. Last we’ll add in our dry ingredients starting with 1 teaspoon of baking powder 3/4 of a teaspoon of salt and 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda We’ll mix this in and then we’ll add in our
flour. I like to just give it a few seconds and let it mix in just a little tiny bit Then we’ll need 3 1/2 cups of all purpose
flour Get it all into the stand mixer and then we’ll just mix this together. You should end up with a nice wet sticky dough Next you’ll need to line a baking sheet with some parchment paper or a silicone baking
mat. Then we’re going to take the dough and roll it into a little ball in your hands and then give it a slight press to flatten and then place it onto your prepared tray. Repeat this process with all of your remaining
dough. This recipe makes about 24 sugar cookies so you’ll need two baking trays to get them
all to fit. You can see that I fit about 12 cookies on each baking sheet. Now these are drop sugar cookies. If you want to roll them out and cut them
with little cookie cutters into fun little shapes you’ll want to refrigerate the dough for at
least 1 hour and let it harden up before you roll them
out and cut them. Other than that it’s all the same instructions. Next we’re going to bake this in a 375 degree oven for 10 minutes. While the cookies are baking you’ll need to make your frosting. We’re going to make just a simple buttercream
which starts with 1 cup of softened butter. Once again you want that softened to room
temperature Then we’ll take a hand mixer and cream this until it’s nice and fluffy. Once it’s all fluffy we’ll go ahead and add
in 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract and then we will slowly add in about 3 to 4 cups of powdered sugar. You want to add that in slowly and mix in between additions otherwise the powdered sugar will go everywhere in your
kitchen and get you nice and messy. So just add it in nice and slow. And that’s really all you need for a good
buttercream however, nothing beats a good pink frosted
sugar cookie so I’m going to take a little bit of pink
food coloring and dye our frosting pink. You just need a little bit here. We’ll put it onto the beater itself and just start mixing it in. I like to use actual pink food coloring because it gives a much better color than trying to fiddle with red and make it the right shade of pink. Once your cookies are fully cooled go ahead and frost them maybe top them with a little bit of sprinkles and they are ready to eat. These will stay good stored in an airtight
container for at least several days. I’d say after 3 to 5 days they will start getting a little bit stale
so enjoy them while they are fresh. Thanks for watching! You can find the full written recipe in the video description. Be sure to subscribe and check out the rest
