Homemade Sugar Cookie Mix
Don't buy that sugar cookie mix at the store! Make your own homemade DIY Sugar Cookie Mix! It makes better cookies and it makes a great holiday gift.
Servings 1 batch; 24 cookies
For the Mix:
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups flour
- 3/4 cup mix-ins sprinkles and/or mini chocolate chips and/or nuts
To make the Cookies:
- 3/4 cup unsalted butter softened and sliced into tablespoons
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1 egg
To make the cookies:
(If you’re gifting this mix, attach the following directions to the jar.)
Preheat oven to 350°F. Line two cookie sheets with silpat liners or parchment paper.
Place mix in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. (Or, a large bowl if using a hand mixer.) Add butter and mix slowly until crumbly. (This will take a minute or two in a stand mixer; longer with a hand mixer.) Add vanilla and egg and mix until a cookie dough forms.
Scoop 2 tablespoon balls of dough (use a cookie scoop if you have one) onto cookie sheets.
Bake for 9-11 minutes. I like to take them out as soon as the bottom starts to turn brown (about 9 minutes for my oven) even though the centers may still be a little glossy, and let them finish cooking as they cool. Store in an airtight container or ziploc bag for up to 4 days, or freeze for up to one month.
