My aunt gave this to me when I first started to cook, 48 years ago. I love it so much that it's my go to cookie recipe because you can make so many types of cookies from the same batch of dough.

How to Make BASIC ONE DOUGH, MANY COOKIES!

Step-by-Step

  • 1Cream together butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar. Add eggs and vanilla.

    At this point I divide the dough into several smaller bowls and add ingredients from the optional list to make several types of cookies from the same cookie dough. This is especially handy if you are having a party or for cookie exchanges.
