I love no-fail sugar cookies (NFSC); they taste great and are easy to work with. The original recipe is one of my staples, and when I came across the strawberry NFSC recipe posted by Lovelyladylibra, I was inspired to bake a batch. I made a raspberry version following Lovelyladylibra’s recipe with a few modifications, then topped them with Toba Garrett’s glace for a pretty, tasty and simple cookie treat. I just love how pink these are!
- 3 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
- 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 1 cup unsalted butter
- ¾ cup granulated sugar
- 1 egg
- ¼ cup pureed raspberries
- ½ teaspoon almond extract
- 1 or 2 drops food coloring, optional
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Combine dry ingredients and set aside.
Beat butter and sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer until light and fluffy.
Add egg and combine well.
Add pureed raspberry, extract and food coloring. Mix until combined.
Incorporate ⅓ of the dry mixture at a time, scraping down the sides of the bowl between additions.
Chill dough for 2 hours before rolling.
Roll chilled dough and cut out desired shapes, placing them on a parchment lined baking sheet.
Bake for 9 to 12 minutes or until edges turn slightly golden. Allow to cool before icing.
Toba Garrett’s Glace Icing Ingredients
- 1 pound confectioners’ sugar, sifted
- ⅜ cup milk or water

Combine all ingredients in the bowl of a stand mixer.

I have the same exact recipe but strawberry! My customers love it!
I will be trying this for sure. I use the NFSC recipe all the time. Thank you for posting :)
How do you measure 3/8 of a cup?
Hi. That's 1/4 cup and 2 tbsp. I have a 1/8 cup measure so I would measure 3 of those. Hope this helps
The ingredients printed out very small, I would not have known that the icing was 3/8ths cup if it weren't for Ana 111. Or maybe my 44 year old eyes are too old! LOL
In the past two years of my discovering sugar cookie decorating I have never found a cookie recipe that I love. When I read that your recipe has raspberry puree in it I thought i would give it a try. I only made half the recipe. I wish I would have doubled it. Its the best cookie I have tasted. It is also the only cookie that I have made that held it's shape. Thank you for posting this recipe.
I can not wait to try this recipe. I too have been hunting for a fabulous sugar cookie recipe, sounds like a winner! Thanks so much!!!
