No-Roll Sugar Cookies

on March 31, 2014

We need some spring time fun after this horrible and VERY long winter!

Nothing says fun like pulling your dress up over your head.

I’m not sure what the deal is with me always pulling my dress/shirt up, but there are a lot of pictures of me like this!

This picture says I was 4 months old, so that puts it in April and I’m sure it was Easter time.

I LOVE that I’m sitting on the old green couch of Grandma and Grandpa’s.

I took a lot of naps on that old couch!

It had a certain smell and feel to it and I LOVED it!!!

Is that weird?

The recipe today isn’t really a spring time recipe but we’re going to make it one!

No-Roll Sugar Cookies is a pretty basic sugar cookie recipe.

Note that there are no baking time or temperature again – you should know this!

Here is the recipe as I made it:

No-Roll Sugar Cookies

1 cup butter, softened

2 cups sugar

2 eggs

3 cups + 2 Tablespoons all purpose flour

2 teaspoons cream of tartar

1 teaspoon baking soda

Cream butter and sugar together.

Add eggs.

Add flour, cream of tartar, and baking soda and mix well.

Chill for about 1 hour.

Shape into balls, press with a fork, and sprinkle with sugar.

Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes.


I’ve shown you three different ways to do these sugar cookies here.

The flat one on the left is dough rolled into a ball, rolled in sugar, and then flattened with a glass.

The round one in the back is dough rolled into a ball, rolled in sugar, and left that way.

The one on the right is dough rolled into a ball, flattened with a fork, and sprinkled with sugar.

I wanted to show you the before and after pictures so you can decide for yourself how you want to do it – take your pick.

I chose to stick with the recipe instructions and do it the way it said on the card – with a fork.


I used spring colored sugars so we could get in the mood!


These cookies are very tasty!

Try this recipe – you’ll love it!
