Super Chewy Sugar Cookies

Let’s talk cookies, shall we?

Sugar cookies, to be specific.

Sugar cookies sans-royal icing to be even more specific.

Sugar cookies that are chewy, yet pack a nice little crunch thanks to the sanding sugar they’ve been rolled in just prior to baking.

Yeah… that’s what we have going on here.


Super Chewy Sugar Cookies
Recipe type: Dessert
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 24 cookies
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 8 ounces (2 sticks) unsalted butter
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup light brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1½ teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup sanding sugar (your choice of color)
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Sift the flour, baking powder, and salt together.
  3. Cream the butter and sugar in an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment until light and fluffy, approx 4 to 5 minutes. Add the egg and vanilla extract, blend until completely incorporated.
  4. Add the sifted dry ingredients and slowly mix until the dough has come together and formed a uniform mass.
  5. Scoop or roll tablespoon sized balls, roll them into the sanding and place on a cookie sheet spacing them about 2 inches apart over a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat. Flatten the cookies with a flat bottomed glass.
  6. Bake cookies for 12 to 15 minutes or until lightly golden brown around the edges. Allow cookies to cool in baking sheet for 2 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack until completely cooled.
  7. Store in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
