For the Sugar Cookies:

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the Butterbeer Sauce:

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons butterscotch schnapps (optional, for an extra butterbeer flavor)


For the Sugar Cookies:

  1. Preheat Oven:
    • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Mix Dry Ingredients:
    • In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  3. Cream Butter and Sugar:
    • In a large bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.
  4. Add Wet Ingredients:
    • Beat in the egg and vanilla extract until well combined.
  5. Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients:
    • Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until a dough forms.
  6. Chill the Dough:
    • Divide the dough in half, flatten into discs, wrap each disc in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or until firm.
  7. Roll and Cut:
    • On a floured surface, roll out one disc of dough to about 1/4 inch thickness. Use cookie cutters to cut out shapes and transfer them to the prepared baking sheets, leaving some space between each cookie.
  8. Bake:
    • Bake the cookies for 8-10 minutes, or until the edges are lightly golden. Allow them to cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

For the Butterbeer Sauce:

  1. Prepare Sauce:
    • In a saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter.
  2. Add Ingredients:
    • Stir in the heavy cream, brown sugar, and salt. Cook, stirring constantly, until the sugar is dissolved and the mixture is smooth.
  3. Simmer:
    • Allow the mixture to simmer for about 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until it thickens slightly.
  4. Add Flavoring:
    • Remove the saucepan from heat and stir in the vanilla extract and butterscotch schnapps (if using).


  1. Drizzle Sauce:
    • Once the cookies have cooled, drizzle the butterbeer sauce over the top of each cookie using a spoon or a piping bag.
  2. Serve and Enjoy:
    • Allow the butterbeer sauce to set slightly before serving. Enjoy your homemade butterbeer sugar cookies with a deliciously magical butterbeer sauce!
