Fluffy and Chewy Sugar Cookies

Fluffy and Chewy Sugar Cookies


  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • ¾ cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 tbsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 cups AP flour
  • 1 tsp. fine sea salt
  • 1 ½ tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 ½ tbsp. milk
  • Sugar crystals, for sprinkling


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.

  2. In a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment cream together the butter and both sugars until light and fluffy. Add in the vanilla.

    Add in the eggs, one at a time and mix thoroughly scraping down the sides every so often.

  3. In a small bowl combine the flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Add to the butter mixture and combine until you no longer see any flour.

  4. Using a small to medium sized ice cream scoop or large spoon, drop the cookies onto the cookie sheet. Do not press down.

  5. Bake for 9-11 minutes until golden brown and set. The bottom will get darker than the tops. Remove and let cool on a cooling rack. Continue with remaining dough.

  6. In a small bowl combine the powdered sugar and milk. Whisk until smooth. Frost the cooled cookies with the frosting and sprinkle with sugar. Will keep in an airtight container for 3-4 days.
