Sugar Cookies made with Karo Syrup


  • 2-1/2 cups Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/4 cups sugar
  • 10 tablespoons butter softened
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon Karo® Light Corn Syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon Almond Extract


  1. Combine flour mix, baking powder, and salt in a bowl and set aside.
  2. Combine sugar and butter in the bowl of a stand mixer and blend until smooth. Add egg, corn syrup and extracts and continue mixing until well blended. Add dry ingredients and mix on low speed for 1 to 2 minutes or until a smooth dough forms.
  3. Transfer dough onto plastic film, flatten into a disc, wrap tightly and refrigerate for 30 minutes or until very firm.
  4. Preheat oven to 375˚F.
  5. Roll dough into 1-inch balls and arrange 3-inches apart on an ungreased baking sheet. Flatten slightly to 1/2-inch thickness (if dough becomes too soft refrigerate for an additional 10 minutes prior to baking).
  6. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until firm in center. Remove from oven and cool on baking sheet.
