The Easiest Cookie Dough

This is such an easy cookie dough that I have to share it with you. Three ingredients and that's it.
Flour, icing sugar and lots of butter.

This is the dough I used for Heidi's birthday party and it was a big success. I also felt good about the fact that it did not contain any eggs since these days parents are very fussy about their kids eating raw eggs in dough or batter (not me though!). So I decided to play it safe.

It really is a great dough and the kids loved working with it and eating it. The baking time really depends on how thick you roll out the dough and with 7 kids we had a variety of cookie shapes and sizes. I just let them do what they wanted really. I suggest sticking to basic cookie cutter shapes since the dough tends to spread a little in the oven which is not ideal for intricate designs. The cookies are great as is, or if you want you can always make a thin icing to decorate them.

I found the dough on and it is definitely a winner!

Here is a link to the recipe and here is a copy:

300g softened butter
1 cup icing sugar
3 cups plain flour


  1. Mix butter and icing sugar. 
  2. Add flour and mix well.
  3. Knead cookie dough on top of  baking paper until smooth.
  4. Place in the fridge to rest for 15 minutes.
  5. Roll out flat with a rolling pin on baking paper.
  6. Use your favourite or themed cookie cutters and press firmly onto the flat cookie dough.
  7. Repeat until all dough has been used.
  8. Bake at 180 degrees for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
Make sure you keep an eye on the cookies in the oven since baking time might depend on how thick your cookies are!

P.S. I had some left over cookie dough and added chocolate chips to it, wrapped it in a tube format and stuck it in the freezer for a rainy day. Will let you know how it turns out!
