Why I Love This Recipe

This is a great basic cookie dough to use when you want to make lots a cookies for a bake sale, or for gift baskets at the holidays. This one dough can be used to make Almond Spice Drops, Zested Lemon Cookies, Double Chocolate Cookies, and Nut Tassies (see my other recipes). As is, it's great for cutting and dipping in chocolate or glazing with lemon glaze.

Ingredients You'll Need

2 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 sticks butter softened (Plugra makes this dough sinfully good)
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla


Combine the flour, baking powder and salt.

In large mixing bowl, beat the butter until light, add sugar and beat again until fluffy.

Beat in egg and vanilla.

Beat in dry ingredients.

Chill until firm before rolling, slicing etc.

Bake 350 until the edges are just barely browned.

Dough can be frozen 1 month.
