2. Sugar Cookies


  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup + 2 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup sugar (additional for rolling)

Directions: Preheat oven to 350°F. Combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt in a bowl. Next, cream the butter in a large mixer bowl on medium speed until light in color and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla and mix until well combined. Add the dry ingredients and mix until combined - careful not to overmix! Gently dough into tablespoon-sized balls, then roll each ball in the additional sugar to coat. Drop onto lined baking sheets.
