These sugar cookies are so fun (just as fun as my jumbo chocolate chip cookies)!! I wanted to create a huge, soft cookie- just like you would buy from a bakery, and that’s just what these are! They are so easy to make and the dough doesn’t have to chill at all, which means you can be eating a warm cookie in less than 20 minutes!!

  1. butter – use real unsalted butter. No margarine
  2. sugar – granulated sugar is the star of the show!
  3. egg – room temperature is best
  4. all-purpose flour – the base of the dough
  5. baking soda – gives a bit of rise and texture
  6. cornstarch – helps provide a soft tender texture
  7. salt – enhances the overall flavor of the cookie
  8. coarse sugar – for sprinkling on top to give it the classic bakery cookie look!

Making Jumbo Sugar Cookies

This recipe yields 6 big cookies. To create the perfect massive jumbo sugar cookies, you’ll need to keep a few things in mind.

  1. Measure the dough – you will use ⅓ cup cookie dough to create the perfect big cookie.
  2. Space them – allow adequate room on the cookie sheets. Only three cookies will fit on one pan at a time.
  3. Top with coarse sugar – this is that final touch that will give it that bakery style touch!

These cookies have a slight crunch on the edges, the center is extremely soft and chewy, they are not overly sweet, and the sugar on top is the perfect addition.
