Easy Sugar Cookies

The other day Kim asked me about the cookies in my picture from Ten on Tuesday. They are a simple drop sugar cookie – no rolling, no icing, no fuss. For Christmas I dipped them in some melted chocolate and then sprinkled them with Christmas sprinkles but I don’t even usually bother to do that. Anyway, I promised Kim I’d send her the recipe and I’m guessing you all might want it, too, so here it is.

Drop Sugar Cookies

  • 1 1/3 cups flour
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 stick butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 350°. In small bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt. In large bowl, with mixer at medium speed, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla until blended. Reduce speed to low; beat in flour mixture just until combined, scraping bowl with rubber spatula.

Drop dough by heaping teaspoons, 2 inches apart, on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake until edges are browned, about 10-12 minutes. Transfer to wire racks to cool completely.

Eat. Share. Love.
