If your kids are like mine, they probably adore making cutout sugar cookies.
It’s a fun way to celebrate any holiday (not just Christmas), simply by having various shapes of cookie cutters.
Once I figured out how easy it was to make peanut butter cookies with Bisquick and chocolate chip cookies with Bisquick, I decided to try making Bisquick sugar cookies, because it’s such a great shortcut.
I’m happy to report that the resulting cookies were soft, tasty, and best of all–easy!
You can decorate them with sprinkles, frosting, or just leave them plain–they’re delicious either way!
Making Sugar Cookies with Bisquick Baking Mix
The nice thing about using Bisquick baking mix to make cookies is that it cuts down on all of the dry ingredients needed.
Often, you need flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda, etc. to make a batch of homemade cookies.
But when you make sugar cookies with Bisquick, you just need one dry ingredient, and that’s the baking mix! Not only do you save time by not having to measure out a bunch of different ingredients, but this is also perfect for people who may not have baking staples in their pantry.
Or, if you need a last-minute way to make a small batch of cookies for Santa on Christmas Eve, this is the recipe for you!

How to Make Bisquick Sugar Cookie Cutouts
It’s really easy to whip up a batch of sugar cookie dough with Bisquick. You just need a few basic ingredients to enjoy warm, soft sugar cookies!
Ingredients You’ll Need:
- Confectioner’s sugar
- Vanilla extract
- Almond extract
- Bisquick baking mix
How to Make Bisquick Sugar Cookies:
(Full printable recipe is available below)
Cream butter and sugar. First, you’ll mix together the softened butter and confectioner’s sugar, along with vanilla and almond extracts and egg, mixing until combined.
Add Bisquick. Next you’ll add the Bisquick to the bowl, mixing just until it’s incorporated and a soft dough forms.
Roll and chill. Roll out the dough between two pieces of parchment paper. You want it to be about 1/4″ thick. Then transfer it to the refrigerator to chill for about an hour.
Cut, decorate, and bake. Use cookie cutters to cut out cookies. If desired, add sprinkles. Re-roll scraps of dough and repeat.
Bake them on a lined baking sheet for about 6-8 minutes, just until the edges are starting to turn golden.
Notes and Adaptations:
- The amount of cookies you’ll get from a batch of dough depends on the size of your cookie cutters. We used cookie cutters that averaged about 3″ tall, and yielded about a dozen cookies. If needed, feel free to double the recipe (or use smaller cookie cutters) to make more cookies.
- If you don’t want to make cutout cookies, you can also roll the dough into balls, then flatten slightly when placing on the baking sheet. You will need to bake them for a couple more minutes in this case to ensure they bake in the center.
- 1/4 cup butter, softened
- 3/4 cup confectioner's sugar
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 tsp almond extract
- 1 egg
- 2 cups Bisquick baking mix
- Optional: Sprinkles for decorating
- Preheat oven to 350F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
- In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, combine butter and confectioner's sugar, along with vanilla extract, almond extract, and egg. Mix until combined.
- Add Bisquick baking mix, mixing on low speed just until combined.
- Roll dough out to 1/4" thickness in between two pieces of parchment paper. Transfer dough to the refrigerator and chill for about an hour.
- Use cookie cutters to cut out shapes from the dough. Re-roll the scraps of dough and repeat.
- Decorate cookies with sprinkles if desired, then transfer to prepared baking sheet. Bake for 6-8 minutes, just until edges start to turn golden.
- Remove from oven and transfer to a cooling rack to cool.
- The size of your cookie cutters will determine how many cookies you get from one batch of dough. We use cookie cutters that were mostly about 3" tall, and we yield about 12 cookies from one batch. Feel free to double the batch or use smaller cookie cutters if you need more cookies.
- If you don't want to make cutout cookies, you can also roll the dough
into balls, then flatten slightly when placing on the baking sheet. You
will need to bake them for a couple more minutes in this case to ensure they bake through in the center.
