Ultimate Sugar Cookie Recipe!!!

This is my favorite homemade cookie recipe! I learned the recipe in my foods class in high school and it still remains a favorite even 10 years later :)


  • 1 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup shortening
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup pancake syrup (it's the "secret" ingredient!)
  • 1 tbs vanilla
  • 3 cups flour
  • 3/4 tea baking soda
  • 1/2 tea salt
  • Sprinkles or other decorations if desired

Not the prettiest picture, they are MUCH tastier than they appear haha

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  2. Combine sugar and shortening in large bowl. Beat at medium speed with mixer.
  3. Add eggs, syrup and vanilla. Beat until fluffy.
  4. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a separate bowl
  5. Add gradually to creamed mixture at low speed. Mix until well blended
  6. Bake one baking sheet at a time for 6 minutes, makes roughly 40 cookies
Tip: I like to flatten mine with the back of a spoon prior to makes them extra soft :)
