(The BEST Chewy) Sugar Cookies

For our sweet, little, Marian tea party we recently had, I served a new-to-us sugar cookie recipe.  These cookies were so chewy and scrumptious!

Sugar Cookies


1 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1 large egg
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup granulated sugar for rolling cookies

Directions ::

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Line cookie sheets with parchment paper or a nonstick baking mat.

2.  Cream together butter and granulated sugar (about 1 minute).  *Do not over beat your butter and sugar as you prepare the dough.  Over beating puts too much air into the dough which rises when baking but then falls flat.*

3.  Add egg and mix until well-combined.

4.  Mix in flour, baking powder, salt, and vanilla.

5.  Scoop cookie dough by the tablespoon and roll into a ball.  Coat each ball of dough with sugar.  Place cookie dough onto baking sheet, spacing about 2" apart.  Lightly press each cookie down slightly.

6.  Bake 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned.  *If putting in multiple cookie sheets at once, be careful of the bottom sheet since the sugar will burn quickly since it is so close to the heating element.*

Prep Time - 5 minutes
Cook Time - 10 minutes
Yields - 36 cookies
