What's in a sugar cookie?

To make sugar cookies, you only need seven ingredients. The main ingredients are flour, butter and granulated sugar, which are held together by an egg. A pinch of vanilla extract gives the cookie character, and a pinch of baking soda adds bulk. Finally, a pinch of salt enhances the flavor of the cookies. Mix everything, roll out the dough and cut out your cookies.
