These Eggless Sugar Cookies are tender, buttery, keep their shape when baked, and yes, taste amazing, too.
TIP AND TRICK TO MAKE SUGAR COOKIES:
- Always refrigerate the cookie dough before and after cutting them. If it gets too warm it’ll be challenging to cut out and move to baking sheets.
- The best way, in my opinion, to roll out the dough is over a big piece of parchment paper. If parchment paper is not an option a well-floured work surface will also work.
- Try to roll out the dough evenly, no thinner than a 1/8 of an inch.
- Gather any scraps and reroll the dough, but no more than twice. After that, the dough will become too tough.
- If you don’t have cookie cutterS use a wide-mouth glass jar or cup.

- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- ½ teaspoon baking powder
- Pinch kosher salt
- ¾ cup unsalted butter softened
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 8 oz cream cheese softened
- 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
Sift flour and baking powder into a bowl. Add salt and set aside.
Into a bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat butter and sugar on medium speed until well combined, about 3 minutes. Add cream cheese and until well combined. Scrape down the side of the bowl as needed. Add vanilla and beat until well combined.
Reduce speed to low and add flour mixture and beat just until incorporated and the dough starts to come together.

Preheat oven to 350º F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
Over a big piece of parchment paper, or on a lightly floured surface roll out the dough disk about 1/4-inch thick. Cut into desired shapes, place at least 1-inch apart on prepared baking sheet. Refrigerate for 15 minutes.
Gather up the dough scraps and form into a disk, wrap, and refrigerate for 15-20 minutes. Then roll out and cut again. Repeat step 6.
Bake for 10 - 15 minutes or until cookies are just beginning to turn brown around the edges. Remove from oven and let them sit on baking sheet for 2 minutes. Then move to complete cooling on wire rack.
