Let's do this!! You can have cookies made before lunchtime!
A couple of notes... The recipe is for a cookie cake but she does include cook times for cookies. I made my cookies too big the first try so they were huge and floppy, so pardon the funny picture. Next batch will be smaller and prettier. :)
Frosted Soft Sugar Cookies:
|See? My cookies are huge! Next time, they'll be smaller.|
1 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
2 eggs, room temperature
1 tablespoons vanilla
3 cups all purpose flour
3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
Cream together butter and sugar until fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add eggs one at a time and combine well. Increase speed of mixer after both eggs have been incorporated. Add in vanilla.
In a large bowl, mix together dry ingredients through salt with a whisk. Using the paddle attachment of mixer, gradually incorporate dry ingredients into butter mixture until all has been combined.
To make cookies, preheat oven to 400*.
Scoop one tablespoon of cookie dough onto cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
Gently press with palm of your hand to flatten.
Bake for 7-8 minutes being careful not to over bake.
We may or may not have gobbled them all down within 24 hours... They are that dang good.
Oh and Manic Mama, I'm getting to your award... I'm trying to think up interesting stuff about myself. LOL.
