Sugar Cookies


  • 1 cup butter, room temp
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3 cups AP flour
  • 1 package white candy melts
  • Sprinkles or sugar crystals


  1. Preheat oven to 350, and line a baking sheet with parchment.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer with the paddle attachment, cream together butter and sugar until pale and fluffy.
  3. Add vanilla and egg, and mix until incorporated.
  4. In a separate bowl, combine flour, salt and baking powder.
  5. Slowly add the flour mixture, and incorporate until just combined.
  6. On a clean surface, sprinkle a little flour before turning out the cookie dough.
  7. Roll it to be ¼-inch thick, and use a heart-shaped cookie cutter to cut out cookies. Re-roll the dough as needed.
  8. Bake for 8-11 minutes, or until fully cooked (but before browning).
  9. Let the cookies cool completely.
  10. Follow the package instructions for heating candy melts, and begin to dunk, dip, glaze and drizzle the candy melt on the cookies, and scrape off excess.
  11. Before hardening, coat with sprinkles as desired.
