Sugar Dipped Butter Cookies

20 Jan

My Mom found this sugar cookie recipe on the Land O Lakes website. She is in Florida for the winter, so I made some the other day and mailed them to her. They came out quite delicious! The cookie is tender and the top is covered in crunchy sugar. This is also an easy recipe to make since all of these ingredients are staples in your kitchen.


  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3/4 cup softened butter
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • water


  1. Heat oven to 375 F
  2. Combine 1 cup sugar and the butter in mixing bowl. Beat on medium, scraping bowl, until creamy. Add egg and mix until well combined. Add flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix on low until well combined.
  3. Place remaining 1 cup of sugar in a small bowl, and fill another small bowl with water. Shape dough into 1 inch round balls. Dip balls halfway in water and then into sugar. Place on baking sheet and bake 10-12 minutes or until very lightly brown on edges.
