Chewy Sugar Cookies

I like these cookies if for no other reason than the fact that they are chewy. I don't like hard, crunchy cookies.
I've made these for the church & they were all gone in no time. That tells me that the next time I make them, I'll need to make a lot more of them.

Serves:

12 people at 2 cookies each

Prep:

15 Min

Cook:

10 Min

Method:

Bake

Ingredients

2 c
all purpose flour
1/2 tsp
baking soda
1/4 tsp
salt
1/2 c
butter
1 c
granulated sugar
1
egg, we only buy jumbo eggs
1 tsp
pure vanilla extract
2 Tbsp
powdered sugar for decoration, optional

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a medium size bowl, stir together the flour, baking soda, & salt; set aside for now.
2
In a large bowl, cream together the butter & sugar until light & fluffy.
Beat in the egg, then the vanilla.
Gradually stir in the dry ingredients until just blended.
3
Using a cookie scoop or a teaspoon, cut out a piece of the dough & roll it in your hands to form a ball.
(At this time, you can roll it in sugar or not. Depending on your preference. I don't care for that much sugar.)
Place the balls 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.
4
Preheat the oven to 350º F. (175º C).
5
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, until lightly browned at the edges. Allow cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
6
Remember, all stoves cook differently. It also depends a lot on your altitude & the humidity.
