The Best Chewy Sugar Cookies Recipe

Servings 30 cookies


  • 1 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter one stick, room temperature
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 whole egg + 1 egg yolk
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • optional: decorating sugar


  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In the bowl of a mixer, cream together the butter and sugar for 2-3 minutes on med-high.
  3. Add in the whole egg, egg yolk and vanilla, then mix again until incorporated.
  4. Put in the baking soda, salt and flour, all at once, then mix on low until it just comes together.
  5. Scoop out with a 1 oz. portion scoop onto a Silpat (or a buttered baking sheet).
  6. Bake for 7-9 minutes until the edges are barely browned. Do not overcook, or you'll have crunchy sugar cookies - not chewy ones :)
