Hello, my adoring friends and fans! I have been busy with work and family and haven’t had a lot of time for blogging. What better way to come back to you on a lovely summer day than with a recipe for some sweet and simple sugar cookies that will be perfect accompaniment to iced tea, lemonade, or, even a nice crisp summer wine.
Do you know what is especially great about these cookies? They can be ready FAST!!! Unlike many other sugar cookies, there is no rolling required. Nope. None at all. So you don’t have to chill your dough, roll, cut and repeat until you are out of dough or out of your mind. You can literally have 2-3 dozen fresh sugar cookies in 30 minutes. That’s right. 30 minutes from start to finish. How’s that for a summer treat?
Sweet and Simple Sugar Cookies
1 cup butter, room temperature
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 1/3 cup flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
- Preheat oven to 375
- Cream the butter, sugar, egg and vanilla until smooth.
- Gradually add the dry ingredients and mix until thoroughly incorporated.
- Scoop a teaspoon full of dough and roll it into a ball and place it on a baking sheet covered with parchment or a silicone baking pad.
- Dip a flat bottomed glass in white sugar and press balls to flatten.
- Bake 9-11 minutes.
We have honestly never baked such lovely cookies. I couldn’t believe I took them out of my oven. If I had one of those sites that featured 600 pictures before you could actually see a recipe, I would post pics of these beauties over and over again.
And let me tell you, they are as tasty as they are lovely. They are creamy and soft and pretty much melt in your mouth. I honestly cannot be happier with my first blog recipe in months!
I hope you will stay around and look at some of my previous cookie recipes. There’s a lot of good stuff on this page! Over 300 recipes in all.
