Our recipe for Vanilla Sugar Cookies gives you a versatile cookie 'cause it's perfect as is, or you can use the same dough with other flavorings and come up with really fun variations.
What You'll Need:
cup (1-1/2 sticks) butter, softened
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
What To Do:
In a large bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed, beat together butter and sugar. Add egg, vanilla, and salt; beat until smooth. Stir in flour and knead lightly until a soft dough forms. Divide dough in half, then wrap each half in wax paper to form a cylinder about 1-1/2" in diameter.
Refrigerate dough until firm, about 2 hours.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat baking sheets with cooking spray. Cut dough into 1/4-inch slices and arrange on baking sheets.
Bake 12 to 15 minutes, or until light golden. Remove from baking sheets and place on wire rack to cool.
