Rolled Butter Cookies That Never Stick

on February 9, 2015

Today’s recipe comes from Grandma’s oldest sister, who had a sweetheart at one point, but something happened and they never married. She was unmarried for the rest of her life and never had children of her own. It’s kind of sad that she didn’t have a valentine, but she loved her family dearly and loved all of her nieces and nephews (and their children) as if they were her own. Valentines come in all shapes and sizes and after all, it’s all about love, no matter where you find the love. (She was also the one who was famous for pinching our cheeks!)

Rolling out cookies can be dicey, but I’m always up for a recipe that helps with common issues like the dough sticking. Let’s see how accurate this recipe for Rolled Butter Cookies That Never Stick really is. I usually think of cut out cookies as “sugar cookies” but these are termed “butter cookies”.

Here is the recipe as I made it:

Rolled Butter Cookies That Never Stick

Mix together:

3 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

2 teaspoons cream of tartar

Cut into dry ingredients:

1 cup butter

Set aside.

Beat 2 eggs.

Add to 1 cup sugar.

Add 1 teaspoon vanilla.

Combine dry and wet ingredients.

Refrigerate 15-20 minutes before rolling out the dough.

Bake at 400 degrees for 8-10 minutes.


I only made a half batch of this recipe. Use a pastry cutter to cut in the butter.


The butter should be like small pebbles – as if you were doing pie crust.


It works! No sticking!


I made an equal number of plain cookies and ones with cut out hearts so I could make them Linzer type.


There were cut out hearts left so I baked them as they were. Don’t forget to add the sugar or icing.


For the Linzer type cookies, I used my home-made Raspberry Jam with Chambord that I made last fall. I used a recipe for that from and you can find it here.


Aren’t they pretty?!!!! The raspberry jam made these amazingly delicious!


This recipe was easy and really did NOT stick. They’re definitely more of a butter cookie (not as sweet as a sugar cookie) and they’re delicious. Make a batch for your Valentine!
