Slice and Bake Sugar Cookies

I love fresh cookies! You never know when the mood will strike you for cookies. I don't like buying the store bought pre-made cookie dough because of all the funky ingredients. So when i came across this recipe, I was thrilled. It's simple and you get 4 batches of cookie dough that you can simply take out of the freezer when you need it, just slice it and bake, and voila, fresh cookies!

Slice and Bake Sugar Cookies

What you need:

  • 2 c. butter, softened
  • 2 c. sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 t. vanilla
  • 6 c. flour
  • 1 t. baking soda

Beat together the butter, sugar, eggs, and vanilla until fluffy. Add in the flour and baking soda until well incorporated. Divide the dough into 4 pieces and roll those into logs. Wrap each log in a plastic wrap or freezer wrap and then place inside a freezer container or a freezer bag. When you are ready to use, simply thaw slightly, slice, place on a greased cookie sheet and bake at 350F for about 8-10 minutes or until slightly browned.

Do you use regular flour or wheat, or does it matter?

Regular flour for these.

YUm.. Thanks
Since it makes 4 rolls, I think I will add choc chips in one & perhaps cinnamon in another..

I was craving sugar cookies! I decided to browse a bit to find a recipe better than the one I had been using and found your recipe. Thank you!

I’m going to try to do some Saturday ‘sabbath’ type cooking so that I can relax and enjoy my family on Saturday’s and we don’t resort to take-out. This will work really well for that. My pre-cook day is Friday’s. Thanks much!

If you like big soft cookies like they have at the store, try adding a half cup sour cream to this 🙂

Just want to say thanks for so many great recipes and ideas. We’ve used this one a few times already and I love having something homemade to pull from the freezer and pop in the oven when my kids want dessert and I haven’t planned any! Easy and inexpensive fix!

Thanks so much Merissa! My mom and brother love it! My father is diabetic, do you have any idea what I could subsitute for the sugar? So yummy!

How long do they stay good for in the freezer?

I am going to make these for Valentines Day and crush the rest of my candy canes to sprinkle on top after I bake them.
