How to Make Deluxe Sugar Cookies

Step-by-Step

  2. Mix together dry ingredients and add to butter/sugar mixture. Mix well.
  3. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours.
  4. Let sit at room temperature for about 10 minutes. Divide dough in half. Roll out on lightly floured surface to desired thickness. Cut with cookie cutters.
