best sugar cookies.
But if I’ve earned any trust with you over the last 7 weeks that I’ve been doing this, I hope you’ll take my word when I tell you I’ve tried a ton of sugar cookie recipes…
This one takes the cookie (or cake).
They’re soft, buttery and melt in your mouth.
Also they cost about $1.50 to make, cheaper than any box of cookies you could buy at the store (unless you are shopping in the clearance section and I don’t advise that…you’d be a candidate for “super frugal foodie” status at that point).

Best Sugar Cookies
What You’ll Need:
1/2 cup butter, softened
2/3 cup white sugar
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
1 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 400.
In a large bowl cream together butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in egg and vanilla. Stir in flour, baking powder and salt.
Cover and chill at least 1 hour.
Roll out dough to 1/4-1/2 inch thick. Cut into desired shapes. Place 1 inch apart on an ungreased baking sheet.
Bake 6-8 minutes. Frost if desired (I go for a milk, butter, powdered sugar frosting…yum).
TOTAL: $1.56 or about $.08 per cookie.
How do I figure these costs? Take a look at my shopping spreadsheet to see what I pay for items, average costs per serving, etc and to figure out how to make all this frugal foodie stuff work for you.
