Serves 18 cookies | Prep Time | Cook Time


2 1/4 cups Basic Cookie Mix
1 stick unsalted butter, melted
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 tsp. vanilla
Colored, demerera, raw, or granulated sugar for decorating

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Lightly grease 2 cookie sheets.

In a large bowl combine first 4 ingredients.

Pour decorating sugar into a shallow dish.

Using a teaspoon or one inch cookie scoop, scoop out batter and drop into sugar.

Roll to coat and place on prepared cookie sheets, two inches apart.

Bake for 13-15 minutes or until edges are golden and transfer to a wire rack to cool. For a crisper cookie, bake for a few minutes more, a few minutes less if you prefer a soft sugar cookie.

Store in an air tight container for up to a week.
