Attack of the Hungry Monster. With a name like The Perfect Sugar Cookie how could I not investigate? Well, I have no qualms about saying, "Yes, these ARE the perfect sugar cookies!!" I would not lie to you. Seriously, these are WONDERFUL! Crispy on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside. My kids loved them and so did my friends who were lucky enough to get a sample. Try these soon, you won't be sorry!
This photo is what my cookies looked like with natural raw sugar. You can see Renee's photo (she used colored sugar) and her original recipe HERE.
The Perfect Sugar Cookie
Yield ~30 cookies
1-1/2 sticks butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 egg white
1 TB vanilla
2-1/4 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
Sanding sugar, whatever kind or colors you like. I just used Raw Sugar for a natural look.
Preheat oven to 350-F.
Cream butter and sugars together. Add egg, egg white and vanilla. In small bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Add to creamed mixture and stir until combined. Using a spoon or cookie scoop, scoop dough and roll into balls about the size of a golf ball. Roll each ball into the sanding sugar and place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 13-15 minutes or until slightly browned. Do not over-bake! Cool for a minute on cookie sheet. Remove and cool on wire rack.
Why This Blog?
Come in and make yourself at home. I'm so happy to be able to share my recipes here with you.
I bake mostly cookies, quick breads, muffins and scones -- sometimes pie, sometimes cake, but nothing too fancy. I prefer simple recipes that call for ingredients that I already have in my kitchen.
These are the recipes I will share with you. They come from family and friends, magazine clippings saved through the years, favorite cookbooks, and other blogs.
I'm so glad you came to visit. Enjoy your stay!
