Grandma Bednarz’s Sugar Cookies


Grandma Bednarz's Sugar Cookies

These are awesome! I made two modifications to her original recipe. She didn't use salt, and the dough tasted better with salt. Also, her original recipe said to roll out to 1/4 inch thick, and for me, the cookies baked far better when they were rolled to 1/8 inch.

  • 1/2 cup butter softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 4 tbsp milk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups flour


  1. Preheat oven to 400°.

  2. Cream together butter and sugar. Add beaten egg.

  3. Mix in the rest of the ingredients, just until blended.

  4. May refrigerate at this point to help with rolling.

  5. Roll on well-floured board to 1/8 inch thick.

  6. Cut with cookie cutters, and top with sugar (if desired.)

  7. Bake for 8-10 minutes until edges turn light golden.
