SOFT AND CHEWY SUGAR COOKIES

“If you’re like me, you’ll like these over the crispy version.”

INGREDIENTS

2 3/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups butter
2 cups sugar
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
colored crystal sugar (optional)

DIRECTIONS

Stir together flour, baking powder and salt; set aside.
In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until fluffy.
Beat in eggs one at a time, then beat in vanilla.
Gradually stir in dry mixture just until blended.
Roll the dough into walnut-sized balls then roll in colored sugar.
Refrigerate balls for at least 20 minutes or freeze until ready to bake.
Place cookies 2″ apart on an un-greased cookie sheet and flatten slightly with the palm of your hand.
Bake in a 350°F oven for 8-10 minutes until lightly browned at the edges.
