It’s amazing how good these butter cookies are because they require so few ingredients – chances are you will have every thing you need on hand.
When I first looked at this recipe I thought it should have had baking powder in the ingredients, but it did not. The cookies were prepared as written without baking powder. They were a little flat but they had good texture and are delicious – actually I could not stop eating them.
This is a really simple recipe, give it a try, and enjoy.
- 1 cup butter (softened)
- ⅔ cup sugar
- 2 large eggs (beaten)
- 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- Preheat oven to 375F.
- In a large bowl cream the butter while gradually adding the sugar.
- Mix in the eggs, vanilla and then add the flour mixing until just moistened.
- Place the cookie dough 1 teaspoon at a time on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, or lightly sprayed with cooking spray. Bake for 8 minutes, let rest for 1 minute, and then remove to a wire rack to cool.
