Easy Drop Sugar Cookies

These sugar cookies are some of the best tasting I’ve ever had.  Better yet?  There’s no chilling of the dough, no rolling, and no cutting.  They’re as easy as your standard drop cookies with the goodness of heavenly sugar cookies.  Thank you, Stephanie, for posting this on All Recipes!

Ingredients

2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla extract

Directions

1) Preheat the oven to 375*F.  In a small bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and baking powder.  Set aside.

2) In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth.  Beat in the egg and vanilla.  Gradually blend in the dry ingredients.  Roll rounded teaspoonfuls of dough into balls (I actually use a 1 T cookie scoop), and place on an ungreased cookie sheet (I like to use parchment paper or a silicone baking mat).

3) Bake 8-10 minutes, or until golden.  Let stand on the cookie sheet for two minutes before removing to cool on a wire rack.
