Soft Sugar Cookies

A few months ago I posted a recipe for a No Chill Sugar Cookie. Now those are great if you are wanting a cookie that will really hold it’s shape but they are also crunchy. These sugar cookies are soft which is how my family likes almost all cookies. They start with a packaged mix but the added ingredients make them a million times better.

  • 1 (17.5 oz) package of Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie Mix
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract



In a large bowl, mix together the packaged sugar cookie mix, flour, melted butter, egg and almond extract.


Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.


On a floured surface, roll out dough to about 1/2 inch thickness (I just eyeball it). Cut out whatever shape you are wanting with a cookie cutter and place on a cookie sheet about 2 inches apart.


Bake for 5-7 minutes. The cookies should not brown on the edges. Remove from oven and allow to cool 1 minute on cookie sheet before removing to cooling rack. Cool completely before frosting.
