Best Cut Out Sugar Cookies (No-Chill Recipe)
These cut out sugar cookies are the BEST. They are soft, easy to decorate, have neat edges, and the dough doesn't require refrigeration!
Servings 24 cookies
Preheat oven to 400-degrees F. Combine sugar, powdered sugar, butter, and shortening in a stand mixer. Mix until well combined.
Add eggs, vanilla, and almond extract and mix until combined.
In a medium-sized bowl, combine flour, salt, and baking powder.
Add flour mixture to sugar mixture a little at a time. Mix until the dough pulls away from the sides and forms a soft ball when pressed together.
Remove dough from bowl and roll out onto a lightly floured surface (about 1/4 cup flour). Roll out to 3/8-inch thickness (see notes above).
Cut out shapes using cookie cutters.
Bake cookies on a lined baking sheet for 7 minutes (6 minutes for smaller cookies). Remove cookies from pan and allow to cool on a cooling rack.
After cookies have completely cooled, they are ready for decorating (see notes above).
