If you love baking but don’t have the patience to wait for your cookie dough to chill, we have the perfect recipe for you! In this article, we will share a simple and delicious recipe for cookie cutter sugar cookies that require no chilling time. These cookies are perfect for any occasion and can be decorated in countless ways. Let’s get started!


For the cookies:

– 2 ¾ cups all-purpose flour

– 1 teaspoon baking soda

– ½ teaspoon baking powder

– 1 cup unsalted butter, softened

– 1 ½ cups granulated sugar

– 1 egg

– 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

– ½ teaspoon almond extract (optional)

For the icing:

– 2 cups powdered sugar

– 2-3 tablespoons milk

– Food coloring (optional)

– Sprinkles or decorations (optional)


Step 1: Preparing the Dough

Start by preheating your oven to 375°F (190°C). In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and baking powder, then set aside.

In a large bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy. Add the egg, vanilla extract, and almond extract (if using), and mix well.

Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until well combined. The dough should be slightly sticky but not overly wet. If it feels too dry, you can add a tablespoon of milk to bring it together.

Step 2: Rolling and Cutting the Cookies

Dust your work surface with flour and roll out the cookie dough to about ¼ inch (0.6 cm) thickness. If the dough sticks to the rolling pin, lightly flour it as well.

Use your favorite cookie cutters to cut out shapes from the dough. Place the cookies on a parchment-lined baking sheet, leaving about an inch of space between each cookie.

Step 3: Baking and Cooling

Bake the cookies in the preheated oven for 8-10 minutes or until the edges are lightly golden. The cookies will firm up as they cool, so be careful not to overbake them.

Once baked, remove the cookies from the oven and let them cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

Step 4: Decorating

While the cookies are cooling, prepare the icing by whisking together the powdered sugar and milk in a small bowl. If desired, divide the icing into separate bowls and add food coloring to create different shades.

Once the cookies are completely cooled, you can start decorating them with the icing. Use a small spatula or a piping bag to apply the icing and add any sprinkles or decorations you like.

Step 5: Enjoy!

Allow the icing to set before serving or storing the cookies. These delicious sugar cookies can be enjoyed on their own or shared with family and friends. They make great gifts and are perfect for parties or special occasions!
