Easy Butter Cookies Recipe

Easy Butter Cookies Recipe


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 16 tablespoons unsalted cold butter, sliced (2 sticks)
  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar, plus more for tops
  • 1/2 teaspoonย sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon orange zest
  • 1 teaspoonย vanilla bean paste or substitute vanilla extract


Make Dough

  1. Add everything to a food processor and pulse until the mixture looks like lumpy mashed potatoes. Divide the dough between two large sheets of plastic wrap. Wrap and form into round disks. Chill for 15 minutes in the refrigerator. (If you plan to make slice and bake cookies, shape the dough into two 8-inch logs instead).
  2. Bake Cookies
  3. Heat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper or silicon baking mats.
  4. Lightly flour a clean work surface, remove one disk of dough from the fridge. Roll out to about 1/3-inch thick. Use a cookie cutter to cut out shapes. If you formed the dough into logs instead of disks, simply slice them into 1/3-inch thick slices.
  5. Arrange the cookies on the prepared cookie sheets, spacing them about 1/2-inch apart. Bake until the edges start to turn a very light brown, 10 to 15 minutes. Remove pan from the oven and let the cookies cool on the pans until set, about 5 minutes. Transfer cookies to a cooling rack to cool completely.

Super Easy Leaf Cookies


  • 1ยฝ cups Butter (room temperature)
  • 3 cups Sugar
  • 2 tbsp. Greek Yogurt
  • 3 tsp. Vanilla Extract
  • 2 Eggs
  • 3ยฝ tsp.ย cups Flour
  • 1ยฝ tsp. Baking Soda
  • 1ยฝ tsp. Baking Powder
  • ยฝ tsp. Salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).
  2. Withย electric mixer, cream butter and sugar together for a few minutes at medium speed using paddle (itโ€™s really important that butter is at room temperature as it will take forever otherwise).
  3. Add Greek yogurt (you can also use a regular yogurt but Greek is the best) and vanilla extract to butter and sugar mixture in mixer. Cream together for 1 to 2 minutes at medium speed.
  4. Add eggs to mixture and beat together for about 3 minutes.
  5. Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in medium mixing bowl (weโ€™ll call this the โ€œdry mixtureโ€).
  6. Slowly add dry mixture to mixer on low speed until all ingredients are evenly combined.
  7. Scoop mixture into medium mixing bowl. Seal and place in refrigerator overnight (waiting is the hard part when you crave for cookies!!!).
  8. Remove from refrigerator. Scoop out one fist-sized ball at a time and place onto parchment paper. Knead with hands. Sprinkle flour onto rolling pin and dough as needed to avoid sticking. Use rolling pin to flatten dough evenly.
  9. Using all 4 of the fall leaf cookie/fondant cutters, begin to cut each shape into the dough as many times as possible. Do NOT press down on spring button (unless youโ€™re doing a fondant free version of these cookies but whereโ€™s the fun in that?).
  10. Place all of the fall leaf shaped cookies onto baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees F for 5 minutes per batch.
  11. Remove from oven. Let cool for approximately 5 minutes.
  12. Knead yellow fondant in hands for a few minutes (itโ€™s like play dough for grown ups isnโ€™t it?). Use fondant roller or just your regular rolling pin to flatten into a thin layer. Using the same fall leaf shapes, begin to cut as many leaves as possible from the fondant. Be sure to press down on the spring button when cutting each shape, this will create 3-dimensional detailing and indentations for your leaves.
  13. Repeat step 12 for the orange fondant.
  14. Using the orange sparkle gel, begin to fill the indentations. Do this to about half of the sugar cookies. Add fondant leaf cutouts to each cookie and press down gently to secure them
  15. I found this recipe on easy peasy and fun
