I'm not going to lie, sugar cookies can be a little boring. But, if you add some mini chocolate chips and some cream cheese frosting, you really can't go wrong! These are "no-spread" cut out cookies so you can depend on them keeping their shape no matter what cookie cutter you use.

PSA: If you like those giant cookie cakes from the bakery, you are going to LOVE these.


Chocolate Chip Cut-Out Cookies

makes 2 dozen cookies

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 7 minutes/batch

Total Time: 27 minutes


  • 1 cup unsalted butter softened

  • 1 cup packed brown sugar

  • ½ cup granulated sugar

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 3 ½ cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips


  1. In the bowl of a standing mixer, add your butter and sugars. Beat until fluffy and completely combined. Make sure to scrape the bowl once or twice to get all the butter incorporated.

  2. Add your eggs, vanilla, baking powder, and salt. Beat again until combined.

  3. In 1 cup increments, add your flour. The dough will continue to thicken and come together with each addition. It will be a thick, heavy dough after all of the flour is added.

  4. Use a spatula and fold in your mini chocolate chips by hand.

  5. Roll out your dough in 1 or 2 sheets that are 1/4 inch thick. Place in your fridge or freezer for about 30 minutes.

  6. Now is a good time to preheat your oven to 375° and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  7. Once the sheets are stiff and cold, begin to cut out your cookies. The colder the sheets are the easier it will be to cut the cookies out.

  8. Place your cut out cookies on a baking sheet and return to the fridge for an additional 15 minutes.

  9. Bake at 375° for 6-7 minutes or until the bottom edges are beginning to get golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool on baking sheet for 5-10 minutes.

  10. Transfer your cookies to a cooling rack to cool completely.

  11. Either eat them as they are or top with frosting and enjoy!
