About Me!

Hi, thanks for stopping by, my name is Anna Kosti and I am 18 years old. I live in Larnaca, Cyprus, with my family and I am still going to high school. I fell in love with baking since the age of 9! I started with simple recipes to making complicated and fascinating desserts. I am planning to join university next year, overseas, to become a professional pastry chef.

Sugar cookies are one of the easiest type of cookies as they are very simple to prepare and bake so perfectly! They can be also decorated in many ways and taste super delicious! Make sure to give this recipe a try!

  • 250gr unsalted butter (room temperature)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour


American Buttercream


  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer add in your butter and sugar and cream together for at least 2 minutes.
  2. Add in your eggs, vanilla and almond extract and mix until completely combined.
  3. Add in your flour, baking powder, salt and mix for at least 2 minutes until a dough is formed.
  4. Roll out your dough on a lightly floured surface and cut the shapes you want using cooking cutters. Place the cookies on a lined baking tray and leave enough space in between them to expand in the oven.
