Prep Time 5 mins
Cook Time 15 mins
Servings 11 cookies

Ingredients
  

  • cup (70 g) granulated white sugar +2 tablespoons extra for dipping
  • 1 cup (120 grams) all-purpose flour
  • 1 stick (114 grams) unsalted softened butter
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract is optional

Instructions
 

  • Using a stand mixer (or a handheld one) cream together the butter, sugar, and vanilla. You should have a very smooth but grainy batter.
  • Add in the flour and mix well until you have a tacky dough. The dough should feel something like playdough.
  • Take a small icecream scoop and scoop out 11/12 cookies. You can also use a measuring spoon as well.
  • Roll each one into a ball and dip in sugar. Repeat this step for every single cookie.
  • Once the cookies are rolled and dipped into sugar, place them onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Leave space between each one as they will spread out.
  • With the bottom of a glass, press each one until they are flat ensuring each cookie is the same thickness and size. About ⅛-¼ inch thickness.
  • Bake in a preheated 325 F oven (162C) for 15 minutes. The cookies should be a touch underbaked in the middle which will ensure that chewy texture.
  • Let them cool completely WITHOUT touching them for at least 15 minutes. Store into an airtight glass tupperware as they will last you a week at room temperature.

Notes

You can wrap and freeze the cookie dough or freeze the already formed dough balls.Take them out and thaw it in the fridge overnight. Bake the cookies as usual. You can freeze the cookie dough for at least 2-3 months
Do not increase the temperature or bake these cookies more than 325F. Make sure you wait completely for them to cool.
Can these cookies be made into cut out cookies: Unfortunately no as they won’t hold their shape. The dough doesn’t have a binder in it like eggs and it won’t work well for this recipe. 
Make sure you leave space between the cookies as they will spread out. 
You can add any sprinkles on top before baking if you want to make them more festive. Gently press them on so that they stick to the cookie. 
You can try making them GLUTEN-FREE by using 1-1 GF Baking Flour, but I cannot guarantee that the texture will be the same. 
To make them vegan, use a vegan butter instead.

    the cookies came out Delicious and they were just amazing. i was so surprised about how easy and good they were because i am a pretty good baker and sugar cookies are usually so hard and don’t turn out that good so thanks for the good recipe!
