This is the best recipe for eggless sugar cookies EVER! This super easy and simple recipe only has 4 ingredients and perfect for every holiday!
I don’t make sugar cookies much because it requires a tad more work than other cookies, rolling them out. This recipe is perfect because you don’t need a rolling pin OR cookie cutters.
If you are new to my site, then you should know I’m allergic to eggs. I’ve been allergic my entire life so I’ve never been able to eat “normal” cookies and cakes.
When I would search for recipes, I would find one that looked good and when I looked closer it would require all kinds of weird ingredients that I never bought and would only use once. So I started making adjustments to regular recipes and was able to eat sweets and desserts too.
After trial and error, I’ve been able to create my own recipes that use ingredients you already have in your pantry.
This recipe only has four ingredients- flour, vanilla extract, butter and sugar!

Sugar Cookie Recipe Trick!
First, don’t forget to preheat the oven to 350 F.
Here’s the trick that makes these sugar cookies so easy! See the picture below. Once you roll the sugar cookie dough into the cookie sized ball, you’ll want to lay them on your pan. I do around twelve at a time.
Find a glass cup. You’ll dip the bottom of the glass into your sugar and then press down on the cookie to flatten it out, about 1/4 inch thickness. The sugar will transfer to the cookie for baking.
Hint: The first time you dip your glass into the sugar it won’t stick to the glass. You can dip your glass into your mixing bowl dough to get a little of the grease from the butter. It will help the sugar stick.
Look closely at the image, you can see the sugar on the bottom of the glass.
These cookies will get lightly browned on the edges. That’s when you’ll know they’re done.
