Easy Roll-Out Refrigerator Cookies

These roll-out refrigerator cookies are super easy to make and only need to be chilled for about 2 hours before you can roll them out and cut them into fun shapes!  Although try not to do what I did and forget to add in the baking soda.  Duh.  Thankfully, I remembered in time to add it in to the mix!


1 cup butter, softened in the microwave for about 20 seconds
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg
2 1/3 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda


Cream butter and sugar in a mixing bowl on low until light and fluffy.  Add vanilla and egg.  Mix.  Add flour and baking soda.  Mix well – dough will be thick.  Store in the refrigerator for about 2 hours.  When chilled, divide dough in half and roll each half about 1/2 inch thick.  Cut into desired shapes … we are making Christmas cookies today!  Cook at 375 for 7 to 8 minutes and remove immediately from the cookie pan to cool. 

Frost and decorate as desired!!
