Sheet Cake Sugar Cookies

Sugar Cookies have to be one of my favorite treats.
Chilling, rolling and cutting out Sugar Cookies...not so much.
This recipe takes all of the time consuming aspects of the
Sugar Cookie out of the equation.

Sheet Cake Sugar Cookies:
1 c. butter, softened (no substitutions!)
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/2 t. vanilla
1 t. almond extract
1 1/2 c. sugar
1 egg
1/2 t. baking soda
1/2 t. baking powder
2 3/4 c. flour
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In the bowl of a Kitchen Aid, cream together the butter, cream cheese, vanilla & almond extracts. Cream until light and fluffy. Add sugar and egg. Once they are incorporated, add baking soda, baking powder and flour. Do not overmix.
Spray a 10x15 inch sheet cake pan. Spread cookie mixture into the pan and bake for 18 minutes.
Frost with your favorite frosting! I used a simple buttercream flavored with almond extract & colored pink!
Bon Appetit!


  1. I love these-- I can't wait to make them!!

  2. I'm going to try and make these today for an activity I'm going to this evening. They look yummy, thanks for the great recipes.

  3. okay I made them they were yummy , but are you sure you used a 10x15 pan? Cause mine looked more like squares. what did I do wrong?

  4. Explain "squares". When I was given this recipe I measured my sheet pans to make sure I had the correct size. 10x15 is the size I use to get the thickness we like. You could use other sizes, but you'd want to adjust cooking times, etc.

  5. The "cookies" were thick like squares they didn't turn out as thin as your looked in the pictures.

  6. The edges will puff up & be thicker than the middle - and the picture is of a middle piece, so I'm not sure what went wrong.
