Piping Plover Sugar Cookie Recipe

If you love baking, you’re going to love this recipe. This super easy sugar cookie recipe is great for rolling out and making all sorts of fun cookie shapes.


– 1 ½ cups of softened butter
– 2 cups of white sugar
– 4 eggs
– 5 cups of all-purpose flour
– 2 teaspoons of baking powder
– 1 teaspoon of salt
– 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
– Icing of your choice


Directions for rolled cookies:

Step 1: Pour the sugar and softened butter into a large mixing bowl and cream (mix) them until you have a smooth, fluffy, yellow mix.
Step 2: Next, add the eggs and vanilla, and beat until smooth.
Step 3: Add the flour, baking powder and salt, and stir until smooth.
Step 4: Cover and chill your dough for at least 1 hour.
Step 5 (optional): Make the piping plover cut-out by tracing and cutting out this template on parchment or wax paper.
Step 6: When your dough has chilled for long enough, preheat the oven to 400 °F (200 °C).
Step 7: Sprinkle flour on a large cutting board and roll out your dough until it’s ¼ to ½ inch thick. Make shapes in the dough using cookies cutters or tracing your piping plover cut-out. Place your cookies 1 inch apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Step 8: Once the oven is ready, bake the cookies for 6 to 8 minutes.
Step 9: When the cookies are done, take them out of the oven and let them cool completely before icing them.


  1. guys, I don’t know how to do a fundraiser I am not new but I know how it just won’t let me? is it because I am in December 2019 and if so can I still fundraise in the new year? Please reply to my comment if you know why

    • Hi Ranger! That’s right, the last day to select a new campaign was on November 15th, 2019. Which means you won’t be able to start a new one now. Don’t worry though, something really cool will be replacing Bring Back the Wild campaigns in 2020 – We don’t want to give too much away yet, but as Earth Rangers, we can promise our animal-saving days are nowhere near over! 🙂
