These sugar cookies are SIMPLE and so yummy!
The Tween Queen decided she needed these cookies so set about making them. She even took the pictures for my blog!!
These would be a great cookie to wrap in a pretty cellophane bag with a decorative bow as a gift as they are truly soft and chewy.
You can also ice them to decorate or add a little flavored extract (almond is our favorite) for a different touch, or try adding food coloring and make different colored cookies.
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
1½ cups sugar
2¼ cups all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
Colored Sprinkles or plain sugar to roll the cookies in
Preheat oven to 350º F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper or silpat mat
Cream butter and sugar until fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add egg and mix well
Stir in flour slowly, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and vanilla.
Scoop cookie dough and roll into a ball (about a walnut size ball).
Add sprinkles/sugar to a bowl or plate and roll the cookie dough into it to coat it or on top half only.
Place sugared ball onto baking sheet, spacing about 1½-inches apart.
Lightly press each cookie down with the back of the tablespoon.
