I'm making a large 10" cookie and it needs to stand up. My go to receipt for sugar cookies is:

3 cups of all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 cup of sugar
2 sticks of butter
1 egg
1 tsp of extract

This receipt is great, but my 10" cookie keeps breaking (before icing)after it is baked. What can I add to stiffen the cookie up a little?

I need Help...

how long are you baking it? It might need to be in the oven longer....

I normally leave smaller cookies in for 10-12min. The bigger one I left for 15 min. Maybe I should try a little longer on my next batch

I would roll them at least 1/4" then bake them at a lower temperature for longer (sometimes much longer). If they are thick and you do this, they tend to get very stiff.

I agree. Roll them thick, bake in a slower oven (325) for a long time; maybe until the edges are uniformly brown.
