BUTTER-COOKIES - Simple butter cookies
After reading the ingredients on a can of imported Danish
butter cookies, I thought: "Hey! I can do this myself!", so
I developed the following recipe. It doesn't resemble the
original too much, but considering that the cookies don't
stay around for more than two days, and that even my mother
liked them, they must be good!
INGREDIENTS (Makes 2-3 dozen cookies))
1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 cup white flour
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
(1) Beat the butter with the sugar.
(2) Add the egg and vanilla and beat until you get a
(3) Mix the flour and baking powder and gradually
blend them into the mixture. When you're done,
you should have a rather sticky dough.
(4) Shape the dough into balls, about 1 inch in diame-
ter. Roll them in sugar and place them on an
ungreased cookie sheet, leaving about an inch of
space between cookies, so that they don't stick
together when they expand.
(5) Bake in preheated oven at 350 deg. F for 20
(6) Remove from oven, let them cool for a while, and
start eating right away.
Difficulty: Easy. Time: 20 minutes preparation, 20 minutes
baking. Precision: measure the ingredients.
